Is Coaching Right for You?

Principals report that working with a coach can help address: 

 

Time Constraints 

While lack of time might cause you to hesitate about adding coaching sessions to your schedule, a coach can actually help you solve some of your time management challenges. Your coach will help you prioritize your work and help you identify areas where processes can be streamlined. 

 

In addition, you can meet with your coach in person or virtually at times most convenient to you. 

 

Intention and Goal-setting 

Coaching helps you step out of reactive mode and into a strategic mindset. Day-to-day activities often leave you with little time or energy to reflect on the big picture for your school and your career. A coach can help you identify your goals for both, and he or she will work with you to set intentions that lead you down a growth path. 

 

Our coaches work with brand-new principals and seasoned principals alike. As one participant stated, “We all need coaches.” 

 

Problem-solving 

A coach gives you a reliable source for working through unexpected challenges that inevitably arise throughout the school year. Your coach can help you learn to trust your gut instinct or approach challenges with a different perspective. Your relationship with your coach is a no-judgement zone, which allows you to express yourself freely as you search for the right solutions to problems. 

 

Empathy

Our coaches all have education leadership backgrounds. They have been in your shoes, and they approach coaching with a high degree of empathy. You will be able to lean on your coach during your trying moments, as well as celebrate your wins. You choose a coach who best fits your personal style and needs so you can be you throughout the process.
