Coaching for Leadership
Coaching Teachers for Leadership
Preparing for School Leadership Success
Joining the leadership team of a school is an exciting challenge. It gives you the freedom to make decisions and influence the daily lives of hundreds if not thousands of students and staff. It’s an opportunity to make a difference on a huge scale and help your school develop in ways that align with your own vision and values. Every day will be different, full of inspiration and energy. It is immensely rewarding and frightening in equal measure.
If you’re ready to step up to a leadership role then I can help you identify the skills and abilities you need to become a successful and inspirational Head Teacher, Deputy Head or Assistant Head. I will show you how to develop new ways of thinking and behaving that may be unlike any of the many skills you have acquired during your years in the classroom.
You will need to pause and reflect on your leadership practice, behaviours and beliefs. You will need to explore what is most important to you and your school. You will need to demonstrate that you are ready to take on wider responsibilities and whole-school policies. You will need to show a willingness to make the tough decisions in the context of the bigger picture.

Tailor-made coaching sessions to help you achieve your goal
What an educational coach can do for you
Working with an educational coach creates a powerful learning and personal development environment that will help you stay motivated and focused on your goal. My tailor-made approach will inspire you to make the positive changes in your behaviour and develop the confidence you need to take on a leadership role.
We will work together on a one-to-one basis that will increase your self-awareness and self-belief. I will encourage you to identify the leadership skills you need to develop. I will listen carefully and completely non-judgementally to any thoughts, worries or concerns you may have as you gain confidence and explore what kind of leader you want to become.
Our coaching sessions will be entirely devoted to you. I will challenge you and encourage you to work on any issues that need attention. And so long as you are actively engaged in the coaching process you will get the outcomes you desire.
Coaching periods can be for any duration from an hour a week to day-long sessions.
