3 Big Pieces to Coaching: strong relationships, leadership aspect/building leaders, content

The more alignment we have as a system the more success we will have in meeting our goals.

Coaches need to see themselves as leaders.

Positivity in coaching and being mindful of coaching humans. Focus the conversation on the positive so that they can progress forward.

Why do people change? Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose -Daniel Pink

Teachers do not need fixing,we need positive feedback.

Coaching Groups: Have protocols in place, equal voices, grow the group together,  and growing leaders in the group.

“In classrooms we want to see students doing the thinking and the work, in coaching we want  teachers doing the thinking and the work. It doesn't have to be all on our shoulders.”

Measuring impact: Look at how well that organization is growing together, listening, building leaders, depth of questions, and achievement scores.

“Strive to see the strength in others!”
