Whether your school team is just beginning to think about equity or has been doing this work for years, building successful schools requires effectively coaching for equity. In this workshop, participants will learn how to create a more just, equitable school system using the tools of transformational coaching from Elena Aguilar's new book, Coaching for Equity (2020). In this book, Elena offers an expanded framework for how to have coaching conversations that result in behavior change and includes a comprehensive set of new tools.
This workshop provides participants with structures within which to practice these conversations and more deeply understand how to use these new tools. You'll learn about and practice six kinds of coaching conversations that center equity, and you'll see masterful demonstrations of these conversations. You'll also grapple with:
- The relationship between your own identity and the systems of oppression that permeate our schools
- Honing a vision for what equity would look like in your work
- Developing the skills to facilitate compassionate coaching conversations about identity
- Strengthening your resolve to disrupt inequities in your communities
This workshop is a satisfying balance between building skill and knowledge and also attending to our need to build internal reserves and resilience when leading for equity.
- Ground in the identities and beliefs with which they lead
- Learn new strategies to compassionately interrupt inequities
- Identify ways to explore and shift beliefs in a coaching conversation
- Deepen their will and commitment to interrupt inequities and build their resilience to do so
- Exploring one's own identity and building context about systems of oppression
- Learning strategies for navigating conversations about identity and beliefs
- Considering the use of data in coaching conversations
- Analyzing the elements of effective coaching conversations
- Practicing coaching conversations for equity
