Coach It Further: Using the Art of Coaching to Improve School Leadership
Why do leaders need coaches? Too often leaders are being asked to do more with less, and that puts them at the risk of losing sight of their moral purpose. A coach can help a leader focus on a goal that will impact the school community, and during the process that leader can learn how to coach their assistant principals to help build stronger school leadership. Leadership author, consultant and coach Peter DeWitt, Ed.D. will guide participants through the coaching process and help them learn how to coach others using a unique case study approach.

  • Participants will learn how collective efficacy plays an important role in the growth of a leader.
  • Participants will learn practical tips on how to have deeper conversations with leaders.
