How Leadership Coaching Has Enriched Our Teaching
Wise, Donald; Leon, Ronald
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n1 Jan-Mar 2009
Two university professors share how their involvement in leadership coaching has influenced their teaching practices. They stated that as university students, they learned about leading, but were not taught how to lead. As new professors, they realized that they were utilizing similar teaching strategies as their own teachers, with a minimum of hands-on, practical experiences. Once they were trained as leadership coaches through Springboard Schools and began to spend time at school and district sites coaching principals and superintendents, they found that their teaching strategies changed dramatically. They brought in more current research with examples of practical application in local schools and modeled professional development strategies in their courses. Above all, they found that they connect the worlds of theory and practice on a daily basis.
