International Academy of Professional Coaching
We Aim to Awaken the genius and passion that transforms great educators into brilliant ones. Our unique blend of tradition and innovation engenders the next generation of leaders and coaches with greater ability to inspire, envision, problem-solve, and communicate while building resilience in themselves and others.
Teacher and administrator training is no substitute for coach training. We believe that educational coaching is a distinct profession and, should be treated as such.
The profession of coaching has its own skill set that takes years of practice for one to become highly effective. Coaches who lack this foundation are more likely to guess, stumble, possibly burn bridges, and hope that it all works out. Today, more than ever before, educators face unique, high stakes challenges, and they need well-trained leaders and coaches who have the knowledge, experience, and temperament to help them navigate those challenges.
The Covid-19 pandemic has engendered collective trauma across our nation. We have endured unprecedented levels of fear, uncertainty, grief, anger, and helplessness. No one has been more overwhelmed by stress and trauma than our educators, who have had the daunting challenge of coping with the influence of the pandemic on their own families and friends, even as they created and operated a virtual learning system from scratch or provided ongoing early childhood services for front line workers.
When we humans are overwhelmed from stress and trauma, we pull out the sensitivity from our emotional and physical bodies, leading to high levels of disembodiment. This massive amount of disembodiment creates fragmentation and separation from ourselves, from each other, and from the planet. The symptoms of collective trauma may include epidemics of anxiety, depression, and substance addiction. (Amygdala Highjack) Leaders and coaches must be prepared to work with educators in radically new and creative ways.
Join us as we lay out a coach training path that can work for you.
We Envision the creation of a world-wide movement that paves the way for transformational leaders and coaches to become highly qualified for professional coach credentialing with the International Coach Federation. As catalysts of change, these leaders are visionaries who embrace foundational evidence-based approaches while also transcending convention to achieve individual and systemic transformation.
A FEW QUOTES FROM DR. NORWOOD’S COACH TRAINING SESSIONS
We must learn how to work with and guide adult learners toward new levels of competence, problem- solving capabilities, creativity, and higher levels of achievement, while honoring and respecting their humanity and capacity to find their own answers.(Norwood, 2007)
