Wouldn’t it be nice to have time to learn, reflect, and plan together as a coach and principal team? 

We know coaching is powerful, but when we don’t have the time to be thoughtful and intentional, then much of its potential remains untapped Join The Lead Learners and NIESC for a professional learning experience designed for coaches and principals to establish a coaching culture in your school. Perfect for new and existing coaches and principals to:

  • Understand and work through the tension and confusion that often comes with navigating new roles and new instructional understandings.
  • Avoid falling into some common traps like “fixing” teachers or forcing mandates
  • Leave behind negativity with a thoughtful plan for developing a healthy coaching culture tailored for your school.

What You’ll Get

  • 2 in-person days designed to build knowledge and provide opportunities to make decisions to build a schoolwide coaching culture.
  • 3 short virtual sessions to hear from local and national practitioners in the field. 35 minute cams-on session with breakout rooms to strengthen reflective practice and collaboration. (Recordings of presentations will be shared.)
  • A discussion guide for Leading Like a C.O.A.C.H. by Matt Renwick to support the principal and coach (and other teacher leaders) to read together.
