Tension: How coaches can optimise it

Tension: How coaches can optimise it | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
Tension: Continuing their series on challenging coaching Ian Day and John Blakey take a look at how to turn tension into a positive thing.

 

It can be seen that if coaches hold the belief that tension is negative and should be avoided at all cost, they might be selling their coachees short. On the other hand, if we carefully calibrate tension and responsibly adjust levels of tension to suit the individual and their organisational context, then greater levels of performance are attainable. Can we afford to take the liberty of not exploring this possibility fully when times are tough and everyone is required to 'up their game'?

Shape Literacy Coaching Through an Asset Lens

Shape Literacy Coaching Through an Asset Lens | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

When we set out to create a literacy coaching model we spent time thinking about why coaches were important and how they ultimately could impact teacher learning. We sat around tables and discussed articles about the importance of coaching in a variety of fields such as in medicine, in sports, and in business. One pattern that emerged from our initial research was how the most elite and already accomplished athletes and surgeons had coaches. Coaching was not about remediation in these fields. In many schools and districts educational coaching, on the other hand, is viewed as an intervention for less effective or early career teachers. It was as if the message was implied, “Coaching is for those who need extra help.” Our conclusion from the research and from speaking with a variety of professionals who have coaches led us to a different message: “Everyone can benefit from a coach.” It became important as we began to think through the logistics of the model to keep this in mind.

Effective Group Coaching 101: The 5 Key Skills Any Group Coach Needs!

Effective Group Coaching 101: The 5 Key Skills Any Group Coach Needs! | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Group coaching is continuing to take root in many different forms these days. From group coaching processes that are part of a leadership development initiative, to public groups bringing together individuals with a common focus, group coaching is an "intimate conversation space".  In today's world group coaching provides an important space for conversation, dialogue and reflection for small groups of individuals. The synergistic experience of being part of a peer learning process is at the heart of the group coaching experience, which is grounded in the individual goals of each participant and, where applicable, the collective goals of the group.

This article explores five core skills any group coach needs, many of which we can also encourage group members to sharpen their own skills around.

Group coaching is an effective way to create a group positive energy. 


Contagious energy is easy to spread


ask questions in a relatively easy way and make sure you drill them focusing simply on positive igniting the negativism 


it might seem impossible however after some time  you will observe magic happening in the room 


We have inner power to create good energy. Focus on it !

(From the article): Try these questions, see how they work, and find the questions that work best for you. Consider open-ended questions, rather than questions that have only one right answer or that can be answered with a simple “yes” or “no.” The most powerful questions are those that expand your thinking.

When you share facts and stats with your audience:

1. They are going to agree with you

2. They are going to disagree with you

Hence, only two parts of your audiences’ brain will ignite when reacting to data.

But, what if you tell a story instead?

Formative assessment matters.... And students should be aware of where they are on the learning trajectory. The learning target/outcome/goal shouldn't be a secret. And as Rick Wormeli says, if students take a summative assessment and they don't do so well, it's okay to turn it into a formative one.
