“Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
So what makes coaching conversations so effective?
Coaching conversations are so effective because their aim is to make connections. We delight in the trust and the support we feel when being really listened too. From this point creative resources and energy for change can be tapped into much more easily. Actually our social brains are wonderfully attuned and set up to learning new things in this kind of shared moment.
The effective coach kindles lines of creativity for you so that new and emerging ways of thinking can emerge. From this point attainable goals can be planned and helpful strategies can be decided upon. Further coaching sessions can help to keep these plans on task, reflect on their effectiveness and make any adjustments.
Cultivating renewal. Guarding against stress, burnout and rustout
Putting yourself first is not selfish it is the key.
Burnout research in teaching suggests it is those who are the most dedicated and committed that are most prone to burnout. It seems to be a consequence of really caring about others that we put the needs of others first, second, third and fourth. Burnout doesn’t happen all of a sudden, rather, it results from a long term pattern of self-neglect. Rustout happens when teachers cease to be enthusiastic learners. Perhaps in no other profession is a self view as a lifelong learner so important.
- The constant threat of teacher accountability for student performance
- Unsettling changes die to school, building closures, and loss of jobs
- Loss of autonomy and control over the curriculum
- Excessive workload leading to lack of spontaneity and creativity
- Perpetual changes and expectations that are in constant flux with school reform efforts
- Conflict between school policy and one’s own professional beliefs that can compromise a teacher’s integrity
- Increase in workflow they must manage
- Quantity replacing quality as the job becomes more bureaucratic than professional
Investing in coaching is probably the most effective way teachers can turn unsustainable patterns around, develop new ones and learn how to manage change.
