Building Native Communities: Financial Coaching for Self-sufficiency

In this webinar, we will explore a culturally relevant model for one-on-one financial coaching in tribal communities. Financial coaching supports the development of self-sufficiency around financial decision-making. We will explore how a coaching approach differs from other models of client support as well as techniques that support clients to focus on strengthening their financial mindset and behavior so that they are better able to reach their financial goals. We will present a coaching continuum to illustrate how coaching can be integrated at different levels depending on your clients and organizational needs.

Training Objectives:

  • To understand financial coaching, its benefits, and how it differs from other forms of client support
  • To explore a culturally-relevant model for providing financial coaching
  • To provide a financial coaching demo to illustrate this approach and associated techniques
  • To present techniques that support the development of self-leadership around financial decision-making
  • To present a coaching continuum that illustrates various ways and degrees to which coaching can be integrated into your current work
