Overview

Coaching Conversations: Transforming Your School One Conversation at a Time / Edition 1

An effective, inexpensive approach for facilitating transformation through the entire school community!

Different from supervisory and mentoring conversations, coaching conversations shift responsibility for instructional improvement from the school leader to the entire school community. With these proven, practical coaching-conversation techniques, school leaders can engage their school communities to work collaboratively toward total transformation. This research-based handbook helps school leaders:

  • Develop open, reflective conversations with staff members
  • Motivate staff
  • Adopt new habits for working with teachers, staff, and students
  • Utilize the power of committed listening and non-judgmental feedback
  • Create positive changes in how people think and interact
