Price: $25.91

Dr Kristine Needham, Senior Leadership Consultant with Growth Coaching International, explores how ‘coaching conversations’, with which many educators have become familiar, relate to ‘professional conversations’, and how we can increase their effectiveness. She draws on research and practice that have identified key enablers to make professional conversations more effective; discusses how to gain leverage by using coaching strategies; and explains the importance of time, practice, challenge, trust, building on strengths, and inviting and using feedback. She concludes that high-quality professional development, on the nature and value of coaching and professional conversations, is needed to ensure educators develop a shared understanding of how and where they can best be applied in the school’s own context.
