Leadership Development

Welcome to the LGHN Padrinos/Madrinas Coaching Program!  The Padrinos/Madrinas Coaching Program builds on the Padrinos/Madrinas tradition in Hispanic/Latino(a) culture.  Padrinos and Madrinas are an extension of family and provide a strong support system for family members.  Extending this concept  to the professional realm, the LGHN Padrinos/Madrinas Program creates the same support system for emerging leaders working in local government.

LGHN is excited to offer seasoned leaders in local government who are committed to assisting emerging leaders who serve diverse populations and supporting the next generation of government innovators.  These one-to-one volunteer coaches are from all disciplines and are available to offer career advancement strategies, solution based discussions, assistance in addressing local challenges faced when serving a diverse community and/or to share their experience and expertise on specific issues.

The volunteer network of leaders is available for a one-time meeting or conversation, periodic discussions, or a continuous coaching relationship; your professional goals drive the coaching process.
