The coach approach has the power to transform our schools from old-fashioned, autocratically-led, struggling establishments into forward-thinking, team focused, learning hubs in which children and educators thrive.
By handing back control to the people at the chalkface!
Coaching leapfrogs the constraints of the system by creating opportunities for educators to rediscover their personal power, creativity and resourcefulness revealing how this is the answer to so many of the problems education is facing.
Its superpower lies in raising awareness and helping people draw out their own solutions, which is so much more powerful than being given advice.
Coaching isn’t a therapeutic service, it’s not counselling, it is a forward-facing process that helps explore strengths and gain clarity around how to live the life you want and educate the way you want to. It starts from where you are now and works to move you forward, on your terms!
It is an unbelievably effective way of growing and harvesting ideas, when at first glance there are none, and it's also great for helping people to make a commitment to taking action, which can be one of the biggest hurdles in changemaking.
Coaching is what we have in our locker to transform education into the joy bringing, inspiring, happy process that we want it to be. Positive change is within our power!
