Do these sound familiar?
- Are you struggling to get “buy in” for your coaching program?
- Are you tired of constantly having to coax teachers to work with you?
- Do you find yourself frequently assigned to non-coaching related tasks by your building admin?
Most likely most of the challenges you’re facing stem from a lack of clarity:
✅ Clarity with yourself: really, what *is* your job & what service do you provide?
✅ Clarity with your school leadership (line manager, building & school admin): what are the expectations for this role?
✅ Clarity with the teachers you support: what do you do? What does it look like in practice? How does it work?
This thought has been percolating to the surface for me for a while now…
I’ve been working with coaches around the world for over five years (and I was a coach for 20 years before that). Some are brand new to coaching, some have been in the position for many years.
Ultimately almost all the things they are struggling with come back to this overarching issue.
⚠️ Maybe there was clarity at one point in the school’s history, but it needs to be revisited because it’s gotten muddy.
⚠️ Or maybe admin or the coaching team have changed…
⚠️ Or maybe there never really was clarity in the first place!
Either way, clarity is the starting point. And even though the resulting issues may come from the same root cause, addressing it will probably look very different based on how you got there.
Here’s the thing:
The most important thing you can do to improve your coaching practice and culture in your school is to be explicitly clear about your purpose, your process & the culture you’re working towards.
That’s why we begin with finding clarity when we work with our clients inside The Coach Certificate & Mentorship Program. It’s phase 1 of our 3 phase process to create a thriving coaching culture.
