    Leading and Influencing: An introduction to Coaching Skills for School Leaders

    Overview

    Developing your leadership team’s coaching skills can have a significant impact on your school improvement journey, whilst at the same time improving staff wellbeing. Skillful school leaders use coaching to delegate effectively and empower others, building capacity in those around them instead of deskilling and taking on the burdens of other staff. Coaching can make a big difference to both leadership and classroom practice.

    Who is the programme for?

    This introductory programme is relevant to senior and middle leaders.

    What is involved?

    Two sessions introduce the principles behind coaching, and let you explore practical coaching techniques in a non-threatening low risk environment.
