Community Business Leader Coaching Program

Wake Forest School of Business community business leader coaching program provides a unique opportunity for alumni who are industry professionals to enrich students’ development as both team members and business leaders. Our academic programs, including the Master of Business Administration, Master of Arts in Management, Master of Science in Business Analytics, Master of Science in Accountancy and select undergraduate business students use our proprietary 360 Team Member Assessment (TMA) to provide developmental feedback on leader behaviors that contribute to team effectiveness. Results from the TMA provide students insight to enhance self-awareness, personal development, and the impact of high performing teams.

Coaches facilitate and support team-level reflection and the creation of a development plan on the TMA feedback process as part of this phenomenal professional development opportunity for both students and coaches.
