"Leadership coaching has arisen as a powerful intervention to support the professional learning of leaders. In this book Megan and Bob Tschannen-Moran invite us to see into their world of evocative coaching. They demonstrate how coaching conversations can lead to a flow of energy, enthusiasm and possibilities that bring out movement in people. The authors combine their theoretical knowledge with their experience as coaches, exemplified in wonderful stories and practical examples. As a coach myself I could not stop reading because I was so curious about the next chapter. The book is a great example of how high quality professional learning can enhance educational leaders' daily leadership practice."
