Developed after working with hundreds of coaches and leaders in international schools around the world, the Thrive Model incorporates both the macro view of a coaching program, and the micro view of a coaches practice, to bring together the three essential elements to make coaching both sustainable and successful.
With clarity comes purpose. When we are clear on what the expectations are, we can implement the work, and then evaluate the results.
Consistency clarifies expectations. When you are able to implement coaching with consistency, you can demonstrate to teachers why they might want to opt-in to coaching with you.
Community grows culture. When coaches can begin to develop connections between teachers, to build capacity within the staff, they will build the foundations for a coaching culture.

After working as a coach in international schools for over 15 years – in Germany, Malaysia, Thailand and Japan, I started Eduro Learning to support schools and coaches in building a thriving coaching culture.
I have been working with instructional coaches, and school leaders, in schools around the world since 2015.
Even though each school context is different, many of them share the same challenge – they’re missing one of the elements of the Thrive Model which is causing coaching to struggle or become unsustainable in their school setting.
Don’t let this happen at your school! Explore the Thrive Model to see where your school has strengths as well as opportunities to grow.
If you need support as you go through the process, I can help you build the foundations of a thriving and sustainable coaching culture – as an educator, a coach or a school leader!
“Instructional coaching demonstrates the strong belief in growth mindset, professionalism and respect for teachers, knowing that they are always working towards improving their craft and implementing structures to support them. When you hire excellent teachers, instructional coaching and dedicated support for them continuing to develop, is how you retain them.”
All coaches go through various stages of coaching mastery. Once you identify where you’re at, you can begin to build the skills needed to move to the next stage.
