Focus the power of your collaborative school community with powerful coaching conversations!  

Effective coaching conversations are powerful tools to rally your school-community stakeholders to work collaboratively toward transformation, and, ultimately, share in success. The Second Edition of this best-selling handbook includes new neuroscientific research that demonstrates the potential for change in schools and expands the approach to cover teacher/student interaction. In addition to learning techniques to engage and motivate, readers will also discover how to:

  • Develop relational trust within the school to heighten personal growth and learning
  • Utilize the power of committed listening, intentional conversations, and nonjudgmental feedback
  • Create positive changes in how people think and interact
