  • Opening the Door to Coaching Conversations: Being a successful school leader has become an increasingly complex role that demands highly developed interpersonal skills. This workshop shows school leaders the practical coaching-conversation techniques they need to engage and motivate their school communities to work collaboratively toward total school transformation.
