Overview

Cultivate emotional intelligence and eliminate barriers to coaching success

Challenging times demand we change how we teach, and research shows that coaching is the best way to bring about robust change in instructional practice. The second edition of Evocative Coaching helps skillful coaches develop trust and unearth the values and fears that both motivate and block teachers from achieving all that they hope.

Using the LEAD (listen, emphasize, appreciate, and design) process, Evocative Coaches take a partnership role, ask questions, and co-create designs. This person-centered, no-fault, strengths-based model is grounded in adult learning theory and positive psychology and emphasizes the emotional intelligence needed to establish trust. The hands-on guide for coaching practitioners works with other coaching models and

·         is grounded in extensive research

·         includes real-life vignettes and sample dialogues that bring important principles to life

·         provides tools designed to invite reflection and help coaches continuously improve

With evocative coaching, educators can rise to new heights of ambition and ability and discover new solutions to the complex challenges they face.

About the Author

Megan Tschannen-Moran (Ph.D., The Ohio State University) is a Professor of Educational Leadership at the William & Mary School of Education.  Inspired by her fourteen years of experience as the founder and principal of a school serving primarily low-income and minority students in a distressed neighborhood of Chicago, she is motivated to work at the intersection of theory and practice so that schools grow in their capacity to serve all students well. The coaching model presented in this book sits squarely at that intersection. Megan’s scholarly research focuses on relationships of trust in school settings and how these are related to important outcomes such as the collective efficacy beliefs of a school faculty, teacher professionalism, and student achievement.  Her book Trust Matters: Leadership for Successful Schools (2nd Ed.) (2014) reports the experience of three principals and the consequences of their successes and failures to build trust.  Another line of research explores school climate through the Vibrant School Scale that assesses the degree to which a school fosters enlivened minds, emboldened voice, and playful learning.



Bob Tschannen-Moran (M. Div., Yale University) served as the President of LifeTrek Coaching International and as CEO of the Center for School Transformation (www.schooltransformation.com).  Bob is a past-President of the International Association of Coaching (www.CertifiedCoach.org).  He trained a s a business and life coach through Coach U, CoachVille, FastTrack Coaching Academy, and Wellcoaches Corporation. He served on the faculty of the Wellcoaches Coach Training School and co-authored a Coaching Psychology Manual (2nd Ed) (2015) with Margaret Moore and Erika Jackson.  His work on Skills and Performance Coaching is included in The Complete Handbook of Coaching (3rd Ed.) (2017, Sage Publications). Using a variety of strengths-based approaches, Bob has assisted many individuals and organizations, including schools, congregations, and corporations, to build positive relationships and to achieve positive results.
