SESSION 4: April 14, 2020 at The Bay School


Designed for coaches at all levels within their school sites, from classroom instructors to school leaders, this ongoing workshop will explore the habits and practices of transformational coaching. An essential goal of this series is to build a community of coaching practitioners in support of one another. Participants will review essential tools for transformational coaching, read professional literature on the subject of coaching—and engage in experiential activities to build greater capacity in their roles.


After applying new skills to their unique school settings, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on/discuss the challenges and successes of their work.


It was wonderful meeting so many people who are actually doing this work, and to see the possibilities of how my school might create a more formal coaching structure.

I walked away from each session inspired and rejuvenated to keep up the journey of transformational coaching at my school.
