As a teacher, you are both leader and coach to a group of individuals who are in one of the most impressionable times of their lives.  Ask anyone and they will be able to recall their “best” teacher, and sometimes even remember that teacher’s name, fifty year down the track.

You’ve acknowledged that responsibility when you first take up the reins of leadership in the classroom, but as any leader in sport, business or education is aware, there are times when an external perspective and support can make a significant difference for good.

There are two main areas where I work as a coach for leaders:

  • Managing Self:  This includes understanding how to best address and deal with your own stress, whether from inside or outside the school.  It involves understanding how you do your best work and what mindset is advantageous to doing that.  It also starts to discuss and develop the “ideal leader” that you wish to be – and the legacy that you would like to leave regardless of the stage in your career
  • Influencing Others:  This area examines how to “press buttons” of different individuals in different situations.  A sports coach knows that they need to bring the best out in each and every person in the team – and that there is a range of capability and attitude.  We look at how to successfully motivate and engage as well as how to avoid disengagement.
  • Career satisfaction happens when you achieve both of these areas as you know that you are balancing your needs with the output that you give in your work.  That way, both you and your students move forward with confidence and achieve success.  It is the very best way of being memorable by changing lives for good.
