Senior Leadership Coaching and Cosultancy
Learning how to coach and then using coaching skills to promote self-belief, positivity and a culture of continuous improvement is the most potent approach to leadership that a school leader can adopt. Coaching creates for the school leader the culture that ensures that there isn't a queue of people at the Head's or Principal's door bringing a range of problems that they should be able to solve for themselves. Developing the skills to ask incisive questions, listen actively and create for individuals the courage to take risks and find their own solutions is powerful and invigorating. Being in control of one's own priorities and goals is inspiring. Coaching is about influencing others to change and when individuals are empowered to make changes for themselves the results are highly motivational and will deliver successful outcomes for individual staff, teams and the whole school.
