Coaching Letter #134

Good morning, I hope this finds you well. Right now we have about 18 inches of snow at our house. I’m sure there’s a joke to be made about how nice it is to be able to work from home in my pajamas, but maybe not. I’ve been thinking a lot about what we [...]

Coaching Letter #133

Hi, I hope you’re well, I hope you got some rest over Thanksgiving, and I hope that these 9 months since we first closed schools have given you some insight into how powerful you are. This Coaching Letter is about systems, entropy, and strategy. At some point yesterday I looked up from my usual [...]

Coaching Letter #132

Hello, I hope this finds you well. I’ve been thinking a lot about what to write this Thanksgiving; it feels so much more momentous this year. I decided that I couldn’t do better than to re-post the Coaching Letter that I wrote at Thanksgiving the first year that I started sending it out, partly [...]

Coaching Letter #131

Good evening, I hope this finds you well. There’s a massive storm over my house at the moment—rain and wind beating at the windows. I’m very much hoping that I don’t lose internet before I finish writing this. Hello to the folks who are receiving the Coaching Letter for the first time—quite a few [...]

Coaching Letter #130

Hello, I hope you are well. It’s chilly and windy where I am, so instead of going to the gym this morning,  I wrote this Coaching Letter. I am not sure that those two events are as connected as I make them out to be, but there we are. Anyway, this Coaching Letter is [...]

Coaching Letter #129

Hello, I hope this finds you well. Amazingly, this newsletter now reaches people on every continent (except Antarctica), so it’s possible that where you are educators are not crazed, stressed or fried. But most of the people I talk to are all three—being an educator during this pandemic presents challenges greater than almost any [...]

Coaching Letter #128

Good evening, I hope this find you well. It has been a very busy and tiring week—and I don’t even work in a school. My heart goes out to the educators who are working their tails off all day, many of them with their own small children at home, and then are working many [...]

Coaching Letter #127

Hello, I hope you're doing well. I know you’re busy, so I have held off sending out a Coaching Letter until I was sure I would be sending you something useful. This, I hope, is that letter. It’s about lots of things, actually—perceived self-efficacy, mental models, emotions, self-awareness—but let’s bundle those all together and [...]

Coaching Letter #126

Hello, I hope the weather is good wherever you are, and that you are getting some time to rest and recover after what was, for almost all of you, a very tiring week. But I’m also aware that a sizeable number of readers of the Coaching Letter are on the West Coast, and badly [...]

Coaching Letter #125

Hi, I hope this finds you well. This Coaching Letter is mostly a follow-up to Coaching Letter #122, about encouragement. But first I get to promote my own book! The Strategy Playbook for Educational Leaders, by Isobel Stevenson and Jennie Weiner, is now available for pre-order; Routledge has a back-to-school sale on at the [...]
