After being an instructional coach in international schools for over 15 years, I’ve spent the last decade supporting coaches and school leaders in developing a thriving coaching culture in The Coach Certificate and Mentorship Program, and through my private consulting services.
What I’ve learned is that even with a strong coaching program, and leadership support, coaches need to embrace their leadership capacity to truly make an impact in their school community.
Coaching is a special role, with a unique viewpoint. You work directly with teachers and leaders. You are an expert in pedagogy and adragogy. You have the potential to influence school-wide change through the relationships you build. You know exactly how to maximize the capacity of every staff member on campus.
But, you will only truly leverage this potential once you recognize and embrace your informal leadership as a coach. The exact leadership skills you’re building right now will support you in your coaching role and beyond!
