Sustaining the Journey
August 05, 2013
As leaders in systems, it is important that have clarity about the rationale behind an emphasis and commitment to Cognitive CoachingSM. Twenty+ years of research guides us in being able to articulate the importance and impact of Cognitive CoachingSM. Thinking Collaborative is grateful to Jenny Edwards for her ongoing efforts to synthesize and document the research on Cognitive CoachingSM. Each week for July and August, we will focus on one of the nine findings in the research.
Finding Six: Cognitive CoachingSM benefited teachers personally.
When teachers are coached, they experience personal benefits. Self-growth was a primary outcome of being coached and this growth impacted all aspects of teachers’ lives. Teachers who were coached used coaching skills in their personal lives as well.
What are you noticing in terms of personal benefits to teachers when they are coached? How does impact on the personal domain affect the professional domain? What are you noticing in your own personal self as a result of being coached?
