This interactive, enhanced e-book is a guide for coaches and other professionals who support the work of teachers. Powerful Interactions Coaching begins with YOU – how you are and how you approach this work. Your stance, or how you are, shapes how you think and act as a coach. A Powerful Interactions coach:
- Observes for and highlights teachers’ competence
- Uses observations and articulation to promote intentionality
- Values individualizing to develop trusting relationships
- Promotes a mutual learning partnership
- Supports teachers by modeling what to say and do and how
Grounded in your stance, you launch a Powerful Interaction when you decide to say or do something that conveys to someone, “I notice you, I’m interested in you, and I want to know you better.” This moment of personal connection builds upon the trust and security that exists between the two of you. Within a trusting and secure relationship, a person is more open to learn from the guidance and instruction you offer.
This guide describes an attitude and way of being that can stand alone or complement any coaching model you are using.
