Webinar Description

When done right, coaching will have a transformative impact on any organisation. This webinar will help you to understand why it works and how it might look in your school. The session will look at a coaching model, but will also consider coaching as a “way of behaving” - a set of principles and practices that will lead to a sustainable culture of interdependence.

The session will allow for interaction and reflection, as well as provide you with “take-away” tools and ideas that will help you to get started on your coaching experience.

  • Explore why there has never been a better time to introduce coaching as a leadership approach
