||When the time comes to move from the classroom to an administrative position so that your goals and ambitions can be fulfilled, coaching can help you to function as an effective manager. While your career as a teacher can be a fulfilling one, the move to an administrative position can be daunting.The teacher must learn a new and qualitatively different set of skills, honing the ability to inspire, manage and direct adults.
People become teachers to connect with children, to make a difference in their lives and to experience the joy that comes from watching a child learn.
||Coaching is a valuable tool in developing your administrative style. Coaching can assist the educator in identifying their strengths, weaknesses and the tools they already have. At a time in your life when you can feel unequipped to meet the challenge of an administrative position, but have the fire of conviction, coaching can be a valuable resource in maximizing your potential, and allowing others to see this potential.
Coaching can provide the support and encouragement you need, so that you don't feel alone. Our world is so busy today that the art of listening has been pushed aside. In coaching, you are listened to wholly - your thoughts, beliefs, feelings and intuition.
Coaching can help you to learn to be an effective manager. Developing your intuition is an important resource to have when you manage people. When you have good coping skills, your life is more fulfilling and so much less stressful.
