The Global Leadership Coaching Program underscores the need to develop strategies for supporting and retaining leadership talent in the nonprofit sector. International executive directors (EDs) are called upon to be strong managers, strategic thinkers, reflective philosophers, successful fundraisers and public speakers, and inspirational leaders. While coaching has grown as a professional development resource in a global context, nonprofit leaders and staff have only recently come to realize the benefits of coaching for learning to cope with the multiple challenges and stresses of international leadership. A metaevaluation was completed using The Program Evaluation Standards developed by The Joint Committee on Standards for Educational Evaluation. Accordingly, the metaevaluation team determined how well the standards where met in the categories of utility, feasibility, propriety, and accuracy. Findings and implications are presented based on the analysis of this program.
