Leading a Coaching Culture for Learning

About the program

Leading a Coaching Culture for Learning is a one-day strategic planning workshop for school leaders and, ideally, for leadership teams to attend together. This program seeks to enable school leaders to start the strategic planning to build a coaching culture over time.

"…coaching cultures exist when groups of people embrace coaching as a way of making holistic improvements to individuals within their organisations through formal and informal coaching interactions." — Gormley & van Nieuwerburgh (2014).

Learning intention

By the end of this program, it is intended that participants will:

  • have knowledge on how to implement a plan for achieving a coaching culture for learning
  • have an increased knowledge around the research into coaching cultures and what that means for the school.

Target audience

This program is designed for those who have responsibility for planning and leading school culture. It is recommended, where possible, for leadership teams to attend together.
