Coaching is an integral part of any sound human capital strategy aimed at transforming schools. A great coach helps leaders become the leaders they aspire to be and that their schools need. Working with aspiring principals to superintendents and their teams, our coaches push leaders to reflect on their behaviors and biases and see that change is possible; make changes to elevate their leadership and maximize their impact; and build reflective practices to sustain those changes. Our coaches, many of them former principals and superintendents, follow our research-based coaching model to shift leaders’ practices in ways that transform schools. We have coached more than 2,000 school and system leaders, 98% of whom have said coaching has helped them progress toward their goals.
