Leadership Team Coaching
The principal, central office supervisor, or superintendent cannot lead every aspect of the organization. In addition to their many responsibilities, they also have a duty to provide encouragement and development to the other leaders on their teams so that the important work of schools translates to student learning and results. This is where leadership team coaching becomes vital.
Dr. Andy has led and coached several high-performing teams and knows how important understanding teammates’ behavior and thinking preferences is and how those work in a synchronous manner to achieve results.
