This highly interactive workshop is based on Elena’s best-selling book, The Art of Coaching (2013). It introduces participants to tools and resources with an opportunity see them modeled right away.

New and experienced coaches alike will gain clarity about what coaching is and what a coach can do in schools and organizations. Team leaders will leave with an expanded set of tools for leading the adults on their teams.

This workshop also provides participants with a chance to slow down and reflect on their values and remember what brought them into their role and their organization. Those who design and deliver professional development as part of their jobs will also experience exceptional facilitation, learning just as much about delivering PD as they learn about coaching. Participants leave with renewed energy, inspired to return to their organizations to implement all that they have learned.
