Collaborative Leadership Coaching *NEW for 2019-20*
September 19 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
Leadership coaching involves the development of collegial partnerships in which the coach and educational leader are focused on jointly working together to raise and improve both professional performance as well as student outcomes. Participants will understand how to engage school leaders in collegial, trusting relationships to address and analyze leadership issues or initiatives, communicate collaboratively in outcome-based conversations, provide evidence-based communicative feedback, resources, and support development of goals and a plan of action to improve performance. Participants will also explore how to help leaders focus their reflection as well as apply directive approaches in situationally-appropriate ways. Completion of this administrator’s academy fulfills the training qualification for individuals who wish to apply to serve as IPA mentors and coaches.
