As Outfest’s Interim Executive Director, Christopher Racster faced the incredible challenge of leading a prominent LGBT film organization while competing internationally for the permanent Executive Director role. With the support of ESC’s custom Leadership Coaching, Christopher successfully navigated his interim term and was appointed the next Executive Director of Outfest, distinguishing himself as an outstanding leader in the LGBT and nonprofit communities.
“ESC interviewed me rigorously to find the right executive coach, and I was lucky enough that [my coach] Agapito stepped up… Not only did he give me good guidance but truly kept me sane.” – Christopher Racster, Executive Director, Outfest
Christopher continued his work with his coach Agapito in the 2016 Wells Fargo Executive Directors Leadership Institute. He is inspired to strengthen his leadership in order to make a more impactful difference in the LGBT community.
