You Can't Have a Coaching Culture without a Structure
Aguilar, Elena
Educational Leadership, v77 n3 p22-28 Nov 2019
Many school leaders are committed to providing coaching to teachers, but coaching doesn't come together in their school because they haven't taken time to communicate a clear definition of coaching to the school and, especially, set up a clear structure for a coaching program. Aguilar, an education consultant and respected author on coaching, describes the 10 elements leaders who want coaching to be effective and embedded in their school's culture need to decide about: (1) a definition of coaching and vision statement, (2) the context for coaching, (3) a coaching model, (4) goals, (5) the qualities of coaches to hire, (6) the coaching relationship, (7) the coaching work, (8) communication, (9) evaluation of coaches, and (10) professional development for coaches. Aligning these elements and communicating clearly schoolwide decisions about how each element will function in the school's coaching effort is essential also.
