Leadership Coaching for High Performance 2015

"Leadership Coaching for High Performance helped me develop and refine coaching skills that I use every day in my work with school and district leaders. I highly recommend LCHP to anyone who is responsible for helping others improve their professional performance." — Jim Lentz, (former KS Superintendent of the Year), Consultant at Southwest Plains Regional Service Center

Education — and the role of educators — is changing rapidly.
How equipped are you to lead the change?

Coaching is an incredibly powerful way for education leaders, like you, to make an immediate, significant impact in the schools that they lead. Coaching has been proven to transform relationships, increase learning and dramatically change school cultures.

  • Principles of effective leadership coaching

  • Feedback that empowers, encourages and effectively communicates

Teach to Lead

by Cynthia Carver, Oakland Schools

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Denver “Teach to Lead” Summit. For two and half busy days, roughly 100 teacher leaders from 26 states gathered to learn, to create, and to be inspired. One week later, I am still reveling in the sense of possibility that grows when teachers are given voice and agency. I truly feel honored to have been included.

Listening to Teachers

by Cynthia Carver, Associate Professor, Oakland University, LFM Past President

The importance of this conversation was made very clear to me just a couple of weeks ago.
