Why should a campus leader engage in leadership coaching?

Campus leaders know how important it is to keep improving leadership skills. Leadership coaching assists leaders in increasing and strengthening their effectiveness by focusing on improving competence and confidence as a leader in the district, rather than focusing on personal issues.

What can a campus leader expect from coaching sessions?

Each leadership coaching session begins with a focus on the best use of the time, followed by a structured conversation around that focus. Reflection at the end of the conversation allows for review of the productivity of the session, plans for the next session, and actions to take. All sessions are kept strictly confidential. Results of leadership coaching include a leader who is actually more competent in the areas addressed, which leads to increased confidence in his/her leadership abilities, which leads to the client becoming even more competent. The leadership coach functions as an expert listener, careful observer, and challenging questioner.
