The Coaching Institute is a three-day workshop (or the equivalent), in person or virtually, that aims to provide educators of all types (whether or not they have the word “coach” in their title) with the knowledge and skills to be able to support the thinking and planning of others. The workshop addresses these areas:
- Ensuring that coaching supports equity, instructional practice, and leadership;
- Listening brilliantly;
- Asking questions that shift thinking:
- Getting to grips with the nuances of feedback;
- Supporting problem-solving, decision-making, and self-regulation;
- Harnessing coaching to support strategy design, implementation, and continuous improvement.
The workshop promotes coaching as a practice, and there are ample opportunities to role play, give and receive feedback, and self-assess (by recording, listening to, and analyzing one’s own coaching).
