What is coaching for educators?

Coaching provides a completely confidential space for leaders to reflect, explore and design action.  Leaders can often feel isolated and coaching can provide an opportunity for those with key responsibilities to focus on a variety of areas including, but certainly not limited to:

  • Consciously exploring your leadership style
  • Ensuring the best possible results for different stakeholders
  • Dealing with difficult situations and difficult conversations
  • Managing teams
  • Identifying your strengths and areas for development
  • Defining your priorities as an educator
  • Establishing short, medium and long term goals for your career.

Do you feel that coaching may be useful for your own professional development or beneficial for your leadership team, or your institution?  Please get in touch to arrange a conversation with Caroline to find out how coaching works as well as what benefits and  opportunities it can offer.

Caroline, you were excellent and just what I needed to help me reframe my thinking about so many aspects of my professional life. Kind, caring, supportive and challenging (often all at once), you created a safe space for me very quickly to be open and honest with you and with myself. I cannot recommend you and the coaching experience I had with you highly enough. Massive thanks for everything you helped me reflect on and move forward with.Amy Murphy, Head of Secondary, British International School, Budapest
