Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Program (CLTP)

Started in 1997 by award-winning Babson professors Joseph Weintraub ​and James Hunt, the Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Program (CLTP) provides undergraduate students with constructive developmental coaching on their leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills early in their careers. The one-on-one coaching students receive is given by trained volunteers from a wide range of career backgrounds.

Student sessions are broken down into separate programs for first-years and juniors/seniors, and take place every spring and fall semester.

Why Coach?

There are many ways to give back, but few are as rewarding as volunteering your time and expertise through CLTP. Coaches often say they get as much out of the program as the students—this is both because of the quality of the Babson students and the great professional development the training session offers.

Plus, you’ll find CLTP is ideal for networking with individuals in your industry or in an industry of interest, reconnecting with classmates, and staying involved with the vibrant Babson community.

Who Can Coach?

Anyone with a bachelor’s degree who attends the required training session may coach. You don’t need prior coaching, experience managing a team, or a long résumé.

We have coaches from the entertainment, finance, insurance, retail, and travel industries, as well as many entrepreneurs with extensive experience to leverage. Regardless of their profession, they are all looking to help set up those entering the workforce for success.

Some types of coaches include:

  • Recent Babson alumni
  • Not-so-recent Babson alumni
  • Retired individuals looking to give back
  • Parents of Babson students, past or present
  • Stay-at-home parents who want to get involved in the community
  • Local businesspeople
