Powerful Coaching

Course Description

This course explores coaching as a process, a relationship, a specific set of skills, and a powerful strategy for creating change in people and organizations. With the growing presence of coaches in our schools, it is essential that educators understand the skills necessary for successful coaching that promotes change. Karla Reiss clarifies the coach's roles and responsibilities in facilitating personal and organizational change. Participants learn about the International Coach Federation (ICF), a professional organization that sets standards for the coaching profession. The ICF's standards and skills, the Professional Coaching Core Competencies, are explored and practiced in this course. Reiss also introduces her 5-step POWERful Coaching Framework as a rubric for practice coaching sessions. Workshop participants will observe teachers, superintendents, and other educators role-play coaching skills in model scenarios, and in practice sessions with fellow seminar participants.
