Life Coaching Skills for Teachers


What I do for your staff:

I show your staff how to change their lives at school (and elsewhere) by changing their picture. I help them look at what motivated them to get started on their teaching career and get back some of that spark. I uncover with them what their strengths are so they can use them to get more joy and get more done.  I teach them to have fun while having to do unpleasant but necessary tasks – laughter has been proven to alter chemistry in the human body for the better! I explore with them ways to change the beliefs they have around how colleagues and learners treat them and vice versa.

 How I do this:

I make this as easy as I can for principals and staff. I come to your school at a time that suits your staff for an hour at a time for four weeks. I give homework to reinforce each hour we spend together, and I expect it to be done. This is a more effective way of assimilating the skills than overwhelming staff with a one-day seminar. I offer one hour, four weeks, a multitude of miracles. Check out the entire curriculum here.

 How I follow this up:

I offer one–on-one life coaching sessions at a reduced rate to staff members who participate. I e-mail encouragement and suggested follow-up activities to those who opt for that. I visit your school in due time with a follow-on series of one hour, four weeks with additional skills, if you so wish.

 How I custom make this for your school:

I give confidential pre-work that helps give me insights into the particular problems your staff faces.  I discuss with you any tweaks to the format or content of my sessions that will help serve your school better.

What teachers are saying about this programme:
