Coaching includes teaching, supporting, and facilitating teams to gain the skills they need to execute the strategic action to achieve results. Working with our partner districts, we call ourselves coaches. Our job is to coach leaders to coach their teams, so our success depends on the leadership. Who coaches whom in school systems? Superintendents coach their senior leaders. Senior leaders coach principals and department leaders. Principals coach teachers. Department leaders coach managers.
Here’s what’s so great: coaching directly flows down, or cascades, to the classrooms. An effort that starts at the top results in teachers coaching students to achieve their highest potential.
