Deepening Leadership Coaching

Participants in this two-day workshop explore common challenges faced by supervisors and leadership coaches (like managing resistance) and develop strategies to overcome them. Particular emphasis is placed on supporting leaders in strengthening their reflective practice, overcoming bias, advancing a system of school improvement, and sustaining leadership growth.

April 11 & 12 at our offices in New York City
Tuition: $1,200 per person

In this workshop, the Leadership Academy draws on its signature coaching model, in which we've trained more than 750 leadership coaches. You will benefit from: 

  • A research-based coaching model with specific strategies that can be implemented immediately
    • A set of research-based competencies for school leaders that ground coaching work in observable behaviors
    • A rich set of coaching competencies against which coaches can self-assess and set goals for their own practice
    • A small group of peer coaches working in different contexts across the country with whom coaches can network and learn
    • A safe place in which to explore an explicit emphasis on racial equity
