Fleming, Douglas S.; Eiseman, Jeffrey W.
This document comprises the first of four training models prepared for use by professionals responsible for enhancing the leadership skills of current and future educators. This first module, "Coaching Secrets for School Leaders," is designed to involve participants in an analysis of coaching situations, behaviors, and competencies that are appropriate in educational settings. Emphasis is on face-to-face strategies that increase cooperation, commitment, and performance. The module includes six activities: (1) an overview; (2) articulating a compelling vision; (3) establishing a nurturing environment; (4) expressing task clarity; (5) providing opportunities to perform; and (6) giving growth-oriented feedback and follow-through. Included in these activities are instructions for the workshop leader and master pages of readings to reproduce and distribute to participants, along with masters that can be used to make transparencies for overhead projection and workshops.
