The USAID-funded Health Policy Project supports African women leaders through coaching, as part of a larger capacity development model. Too often knowledge and skills gained during training are eclipsed by the demands of returning to work—and to one's old habits. In order to nurture the seeds planted through the Empowering Women Leaders for Country-led Development program's three-week women's leadership workshop, HPP carefully matches each participant with a coach from her own country. Thus begins a year-long relationship that enables the participant to grow professionally and personally through prioritizing, networking, and learning. This brief describes workshop participants' experiences with their coaches, and includes guidance on the effective use of a coaching model for capacity development.
