Coaching is fast becoming a viable model for change and growth with the capacity to enhance continuous leadership development, the quality of teaching, and student learning. Coaching can also address the inequities surfacing within districts. Coaching is an interaction style that requires an additional skillset that takes specific training and time to develop. Learning how to support teachers/educators requires the coach to have high levels of emotional and social intelligence, the ability to customize on the spot, and the ever-increasing aptitude for patience and flexibility.
Team coaching and team performance are at the forefront of coaches’ current work with the capacity to enhance the quality of teaching and student learning. At times, districts have the cart before the horse.
They create teams (PLCs and others) to perform highly important tasks with little or no training in how teams develop. Team coaching requires a deep understanding of how teams develop and knowledge of what constitutes a high performing team. Coaches must learn how to “shape shift” into different roles depending on the stage of development within the team. Learning how to support teams requires the coaches to have extensive understanding of group dynamics and team process.
The purpose of our training is to prepare participants to coach within a customized framework that meets district and school site needs. As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Develop coaching competencies and effective coaching behaviors that build on individual and team strengths, motivate learning, and set high expectations
