Leadership & Coaching

Developing leadership to generate focus, energy and commitment

Developing the role of leaders

Choosing to lead as well as manage has dramatic implications for the success of your school. We can show you how to balance your leadership-management seesaw; where to place your energy to sustain growth and learning; and how to align everyone behind a common vision/goal. We will also show you how to deal with resistance, speak with one mind and one voice, plan powerfully and grow leadership capacity.

Our work with leadership teams include:

  • Leading organisational change through action learning
  • Monitoring progress, including observational techniques
  • A focus on the development of mental models (values) for action
  • Creating a culture of learning
  • Achieving balance between leadership and management

Developing the role of coaches (instructional leaders)

Coaches (instructional leaders) are vital for building long-term capacity in schools. Throughout our long-term processes, coaches will act as a bridge between leaders and staff, collecting evidence of change as strategies are trialled in schools. Over time, through training and coaching from our experts, your coaches will develop into champions who will encourage action learning and support colleagues with the implementation of the plan.

Our work with coaches include:

  • Providing practical strategies to support and prompt professional learning conversations
  • Developing coaching skills, including questioning techniques and facilitation strategies
  • Understanding the role of the coach in peer observation
  • Exploring how mental models drive actions and how mindsets impact on expectations
  • Debriefing learning to promote new thinking and support action planning for personal and professional growth
