Editorial Reviews

Kathryn Kee
"Jane Kise's Differentiated Coaching aligns withcoaching's fundamental belief in the other person's ability to generate solutions and continuously improve and grow.In our world of fast change and results thatoften minimize relationships and produce little change, this book illuminates the importance of intentionally knowing andcaring about those we coach.As a result, trust and respect exist and change becomes possibility!"
Charles F. Adamchick
"This is an outstanding book that has the potential to help educators make significant, positive changes in staff development and teaching.It has helped me,an experienced staff developer, understand for the first time the psychology of staff development.I now know why specific behaviors are observed during staff development and why it often does not promote real change.This book is a 'must-read' for all educators who want to successfully help others improve their practices. "
Lois Brown Easton
"Jane Kise really understands teachers.Results come when instructional coaches understand the beliefs and perceptions of the teachers with whom they are working and adapt their coaching moves to match those styles.Jane Kise uses her own coaching experiences with a variety of teachers to show how a framework for understanding their beliefs leads to results."
John S. Freeman
"Teacher-centered staff development recognizes the differences in adults that we seem to more easily recognize in our children. Much as we may oversimplify the delivery of staff development at the school or district level, practice informs us that one size clearly does not fit all. Kise provides us with a framework for acknowledging differences in adults and shows us how to use this framework to address these differences to support reform."
James M. Bauck
"Gives educators a framework for self-improvement, mentoring/coaching, staff development, sense of team, and the ultimate bottom line in education—student achievement.Provides practical implementation advice that is often 'missing in action' when solutions are created by researchers versus those in the trenches."
Meryl Babcock
"Kise helps teachers understand their strengths and styles and how to work with other staff members who have different or similar strengths and needs. The recommended coaching strategies encourage leaders to identify what teachers need during change and how to support these needs."
Charles F. Adamchik
