Executive Coaching for School Leaders
During the Discovery Phase, the coach conducts an interview and battery of surveys. This data is obtained to capture an in-depth familiarity with the coaching participant’s capabilities, strengths and identified growth areas. Data reflecting the organization’s culture, structure, goals and the nuances of the participant’s work environment are collected.
The coach, participant, and most importantly, the organization agree on the metrics identified in the development plan. The development plan is revisited throughout the program to assure those metrics are being met.
Coaching sessions are one-on-one and face-to-face sessions at regular scheduled intervals. The lines of communication are open in between sessions to address questions or concerns that may arise. Coaching strategies are unique and highly individualized to address the participant’s needs.
The coach exercises high ethical guidelines around communication and confidentiality. This fosters authentic as well as unfiltered dialogue between the coach and participant. (Benchmark data is provided to the respective members in the organization related to outcomes. All parties must agree ahead of time regarding data.)
Executive coaching is a professional development opportunity for leaders and a powerful investment for an organization that yields countless dividends. When all parties are truly committed to the coach and coaching participant’s responsibilities, the benefits are transformative.

· Instructional Rounds
Instructional rounds is one of the most valuable tools that a school or district can use to enhance teachers’ pedagogical skills and develop a culture of collaboration.
The goal of instructional rounds isn’t to provide feedback to the teacher being observed, although this is an option if the observed teacher so desires. Rather, the primary purpose is for observing teachers to compare their own instructional practices with those of the teachers they observe.
The chief benefit of this approach resides in the discussion that takes place among observing teachers at the end of the observation as well as in subsequent self-reflection.
· Professional Learning Communities
Participants delve deeply into Richard DuFour’s work. The emphasis is on professional learning communities as an ongoing process in which educators work collaboratively in recurring cycles of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students they serve. Professional learning communities operate under the assumption that the key to improved learning for students is continuous job-embedded learning for educators.
Workshops can also be tailor made to meet the specific needs of a campus or district. Other offerings are as follows:
· School Culture and Climate
· Strategic Planning
· McCrel Leadership Training
· Systems Thinking for Leaders
