SESSION TITLE: Using Perspectives in Coaching to Encourage a Different Mindset led by Julie Rees
Investing in a form of CPD for school leaders that is sustainable, and will grow with their leadership, is essential. Leadership is fundamentally made up of two parts, who we are and what we do. The coaching is the simple part, it is what we can all learn to do. The key to making it a success is the alliance between the coach and coachee, the unique relationship. The coach and coachee must develop a relationship that is collaborative, cooperative, active and engaged in order to evoke action steps and learning.
When you become a coach, you develop a particular way to be in conversation with another person. Coaching offers a unique way to listen, explore, raise awareness, make choices which may lead to taking risks. This learning informs the next choice and, consequently, the next steps. Coaching is an ongoing relationship and is chiefly about discovery, awareness and choice.
Sometimes, when we are struggling with a topic and the choices in front of us, we need a coach to guide us through the perspectives using different lenses. What would it look like if we viewed a situation that was challenging us through a different lens?
Areas to be covered in this workshop:
