LEADERSHIP Coaching can have a real impact in shaping a culture of challenge and support to enable effective student learning outcomes, yet many leaders find coaching conversations to be difficult, too time consuming, or don’t feel confident enough to use the coaching approach.
Coaching is the art of empowering people to improve their effectiveness, in a way that makes them feel helped. Empowering people means bringing out the best in them without telling, directing, or doing it for them.
Educational leaders are at the heart of any high performing education system. Actively using a ‘Leader as Coach’ approach enables principals to have their personal and profession vision realised, while building strong and innovative school communities.
“Great leaders coach their teams to achieve,” Principals Australia Institute (PAI) chief executive officer Paul Geyer said.
“Principals and school leaders are juggling so many aspects to their roles and taking the time to coach their teams adds yet another requirement on their busy schedules.
“The ‘Education Leader as Coach’ program has been designed with busy educational leaders and principals in mind. We are proud to partner with Coach Studio to run these sessions.”
This intensive one-day program (which includes pre-work and follow up session) provides the essential skills with a practical focus, to develop confidence in applying coaching skills in everyday education situations.
Professional leadership coaches create a learning environment for leaders which allows them to be their best, while learning powerful communication and collaboration tools using real-work scenarios.
Organisational outcomes can be better achieved through having coaching conversations.
Some of the benefits include: creating a performance-focussed environment where talents and capabilities are grown and developed; focus on possibilities and solutions, not problems; inspiring team members to achieve their best; improving workplace relationships; achieving higher levels of staff engagement; developing leaders’ confidence to deal with challenging issues and difficult conversations; skilling-up managers/ supervisors who are able to motivate, collaborate, and coach to get the best out of their teams; and becoming performance focussed and developing a feedback-rich culture.
