7 Success Factors

By Jim Knight

+ session info

Many coaches and on-site professional developers are finding themselves in high-stakes, critically important roles expected to lead school reform efforts with little or no professional preparation for successfully performing such tasks. Having worked with more than 100,000 coaches from around the world for more two decades, ICG researchers have identified seven factors that must be in place in order for coaches to flourish. This workshop provides an overview of those seven factors.

The Impact Cycle: An Overview

By Sharon Thomas

+ session info

This workshop describes the coaching cycle proposed for instructional coaches. All teachers, schools, and classrooms face their own unique challenges. An established process for guiding the coaching experience ensures that instructional coaches have all of the tools they need to help teachers set and achieve their goals. The Impact Cycle–the product of 20 years of ICG research (see instructionalcoaching.com/research)–provides a framework for any coaching scenario. Participants in this workshop will learn why the cycle is successful, gain experience using it through examples and guided exercises, and will receive access to many tools for implementation.

What Principals Need to Know about Coaching

By Michelle Harris

+ session info

The impact that coaches have is directly related to how effectively they are supported (or not supported) by their administrators. For that reason, it is crucial that administrators participate in professional development that clarifies what coaches do and how they can be supported. This workshop provides a deep understanding of how administrators and instructional coaches can collaborate to ensure that coaches have an unmistakably positive impact on teachers’ teaching and students’ learning.

The Instructional Playbook

By Ann Hoffman

+ session info

In settings where a clearly defined set of teaching strategies already exists, this workshop guides coaches and others (e.g., administrators) through the development of an instructional playbook. This workshop is based on The Instructional Playbook: The Missing Link in Translating Research into Practice (2019) by Jim Knight, Ann Hoffman, Michelle Harris, and Sharon Thomas.

Masterclass for Experienced Coaches

By Christian van Nieuwerburgh

+ session info

Both coaching and positive psychology are focused on supporting people to achieve more of their potential. In this presentation, Christian will consider the theories and strategies that make coaching and positive psychology interventions so effective. By integrating some of these practical ideas into their professional roles, delegates will be able to sharpen their leadership skills immediately.

Building a Better School: Using a Continuous Improvement Process to Effectively Impact Behavior School-Wide

By Tricia McKale Skyles

+ session info

Help all school staff feel empowered in the drive to help all students behave responsibly and respectfully. Apply a framework to consider and reflect on gaps in policies and procedures that may lead to students engaging in inappropriate behavior. Through collaboration and self-reflection, leaders can help site-based teams work effectively with staff. Using an ongoing improvement cycle, teams will empower staff to structure all school settings in a way that promotes successful behavior.

How to be an Antiracist

By Ibram X. Kendi

+ session info

When the first Black president headed into the White House, Americans were imagining their nation as colorblind and went so far as to call it post-racial. With the arrival of Donald Trump many people are awakening and seeing racial reality for the first time. With opened minds, people are actively trying to understand racism. In this deeply personal and empowering lecture, Kendi shifts the discussion from how not to be racist, to how to be an antiracist. He shares his own racist ideas and how he overcame them. He provides direction to people and institutions who want more than just band-aid programs, but actual antiracist action that builds an antiracist America.

Please note: Dr. Kendi’s keynote will not include a Q&A.

How to Tame Your Advice Monster

By Michael Bungay Stanier

+ session info

You know being curious is a superpower. It makes others smarter, it makes you more effective, and it helps any system thrive.

And yet … most of us are advice-giving maniacs. We can’t seem to help it! Someone starts talking, and we feel the strong urge to leap in with ideas, solutions and advice. SO MUCH ADVICE!

So what’s going on?

It’s our Advice Monster. We keep feeding it, and it’s insatiable!

In this powerful workshop, participants will:

  • Understand the impact of AGH: the Advice-Giving Habit.
  • Learn about the three personas of the Advice Monster.
  • Own up to just why they love to give advice.
  • Design a strategy to change their behaviour, so they can stay curious a little longer, and rush to action and advice-giving a little more slowly

The Don Deshler Award Recipient

By Jim Knight

+ session info

Most teachers have an opportunity or a requirement to complete a personal professional growth plan. Too often this process is trivial, consuming teacher and administrator time with little impact on student learning. In this session, we will explore how instructional coaches can support teachers in…

  • Developing meaningful PGPs driven by a desire to impact student outcomes
  • Creating an hypothesis that is the focus of the PGP
  • Designing evidence collecting processes that encourage on-going reflection, modification, and risk-taking
  • Sharing personal learning to build peers’ learning
  • Building coachability into the school culture

Better Conversations

By Ann Hoffman

+ session info

Effective coaches, leaders, and educators communicate their message clearly, build healthy emotional connections with others, and maneuver through emotionally complex situations in ways that allow them to speak the truth so that they will be heard. This workshop introduces 6 beliefs and 10 habits that promote healthy and productive relationships.

Inviting Connection Through Story and Empathy

By Megan Tschannen-Moran

+ session info

Evocative coaching is a dynamic dance, choreographed around four steps: Listen – Empathize – Appreciate – Design. The first two steps, Listen and Empathize assist the coach to connect with what’s alive in the person they are coaching. Stories reflect the sense people make of their experiences. They are never the experiences themselves– that is, the map is not the territory; they are rather attempts to understand, value, and shape the experiences in ways that make sense and guide future actions. Because coaching works with the stories coachees tell, both to themselves and to others, it is possible to change everything in the twinkling of an eye. Tell a new story (draw a new map) and get a new experience. Empathy is a respectful understanding and appreciation of someone’s experience. It’s an orientation that fosters radically new change possibilities, by shifting the focus from particular strategies to universal needs. Together, these two practices lead to a beautiful moment we call “the golden sigh,” a signal that the coachee feels heard and is ready to design a new way forward.

Coaching to Support Social-Emotional Development and Self-Care

By Sherry St. Clair

+ session info

Research shows that focusing on social-emotional learning impacts a learner’s connection to school, classroom behaviors and additionally leads to academic gains. To foster social-emotional wellbeing in students, it’s essential for adults to feel valued and supported.  Instructional leaders have a unique opportunity to help create a classroom culture where both teachers and students can thrive. This session will focus on practical tools and strategies coaches and administrators can utilize to infuse social-emotional development into daily practices. This session is intended for coaches and administrators.

Takeaways from this session include:

  1. Understand the importance of focusing on social-emotional development
  2. Tools to utilize while coaching for social-emotional development
  3. Resources to help promote social-emotional development school-wide

The Complexities of Helping Adults

By Sharon Thomas

+ session info

Why is helping adults sometimes difficult? Why do adults resist? This session focuses on why helping for change is complex and what research says we can do to ameliorate those complexities.

Unlocking Potential: How to Encourage “Aha!” Moments

By Christian van Nieuwerburgh

+ session info

What can coaches and leaders do to increase the likelihood of “aha!” moments in the people around them? This interactive workshop provides practical strategies that will allow participants to empower others to come up with their own creative solutions. This session is appropriate for instructional coaches, educators and administrators.

Coaching Learners for Empowerment

By Paul Bloomberg

+ session info

Coaching our students to persevere through challenging situations, learn from mistakes and set ambitious goals requires educators to cultivate core learning dispositions that empowered learners embody. If someone were to ask you to describe the traits of an empowered learner these core dispositions might pop into your mind: 

 

Perseverance 

Empathetic 

Problem Solver 

Responsible Risk Taking 

Openness 

Creative 

Collaborative 

Patient 

Flexible Thinker 

 

If we value these dispositions in our learners, then we have to coach our learners to take ownership of their learning by activating these dispositions when they are challenged, anxious or confused. We have to coach our learners to be empowered learners!

 

Learning Goals: 

  • What are learning dispositions and how do we cultivate them in our learners? 
  • How do we cultivate healthy learning identities in our students?  
  • How do we build clarity of core dispositions?

ICG Coaching Certification: The Reboot

By Sharon Thomas

Coaching Year One: Myths and Truths

By Crysta Crum

+ session info

In this session Crysta will share her coaching story moving from classroom teacher to coach, the highs, the lows, and the crazy!

The Keys to Equity Implementation: Belonging and Dignity

By John Krownapple
and Floyd Cobb

+ session info

Too often, equity implementation reinforces a vicious cycle of failure because the keys to success are missing and the purpose of the effort is muddled. This session will bring clarity to what equity is all about so we can address it through specific actions in our teaching, leading, or coaching practices. To that end, participants will acquire a pragmatic framework of dignity and belonging that they can use to guide successful equity implementation. Walk away knowing exactly what it takes to coach, teach, lead, and generally interact with and for dignity.

Managing the Virtual Classroom: A Positive & Proactive Approach

By Tricia McKale Skyles

+ session info

As traditional brick and mortar learning environments have given way at times to the need for virtual learning environments, our classroom management systems have required some adjustments. In this session, learn a quick framework for setting up a successful virtual classroom, with an emphasis on connecting with students and families. 

Video and Professional Learning

By Ann Hoffman

+ session info

Professional development has undergone three major advances in recent years – computers, the internet, and video. Based on the book Focus on Teaching (2014) by Jim Knight, this workshop describes how video can be used to support learning. Participants will learn the nuts and bolts of how to help teachers learn from video recordings.

Coaching Through Changing School Culture

By Kathy Perret
and Kenny McKee

+ session info

In this session, participants will examine the Compassionate Coaching Focus of Openness to learn how to support educators individually and collectively to positively shift school culture. When coaches enter schools in need of substantial cultural change, they can use their role to accelerate that change. Specific strategies for building collective efficacy, celebrating progress, identifying and supporting potential teacher leaders, and implementing public teaching structures will be shared and discussed.

After this session, participants will be able to…

  1. Examine how openness as a coaching focus supports improved school culture
  2. Implement strategies for identifying potential teacher leaders and supporting them as influencers in culture change

  4. Set personalized goals for supporting educators in schools going through culture change

Coach Happy!

By Rebecca Frazier

+ session info

Tailor your coaching to boost both teachers’ well-being and competence during this challenging time. Enrich your coaching practice by including elements of H.O.P. E. (Health, Organization, Positivity, and Encouragement) along with components of research-based characteristics that will support you as you learn to embody coaching greatness!  Find encouragement and renewal as you discover the inside secrets of coaching excellence.

Responding to Resistance: Leveraging Conflict to Increase Learning

By Bill Sommers

+ session info

Do you think differences of opinion and conflict in schools will be going down any time soon?  I don’t. With this in mind the book Responding to Resistance:  30 Ways to Manage Conflict,  has ways to mediate, gain common goals, and keep relationships while disagreeing on the process. There is even a chapter on what to do when nothing is working. These strategies are presented as an easy to reference drawing from education and business and will work at multiple levels; individual, small groups, and large groups.

The goal of this session is to expand your repertoire, give you more agility in difficult interactions, and reduce the amount of time in conflict.

How to Coach and Build Relationships with Sincerity and Genuine Intention

By Nathan Lang-Raad

+ session info

Coaches have a deep passion for not only the teaching practice but more importantly the support of teachers. It is widely accepted that the largest challenge instructional coaches face is the creation, building, and maintaining of relationships. They must be able to work alongside a teacher and win their trust, but do so—consistently—with sincerity and genuine intention. The foundation of building authentic relationships is good communication and sincere intention. In this session, we will focus on communication strategies to help build genuine relationships with teachers.

Igniting Professional Learning by Focusing on Strengths and Designing SMARTER Experiments

By Meghan Tschannen-Moran

+ session info

Evocative coaching is a person-centered, no-fault, and strengths-based coaching model. It assists coachees to appreciate the best of what is in order to generate the best of what might be. The strengths-building turn is designed to generate eagerness and translate that eagerness into action by conducting a SOAR analysis, inquiring into coachees’ strengths, opportunities, aspirations, and resources. The point of such inquiries is to elevate the focus, self-efficacy, resourcefulness, and wherewithal of coachees. Coaches then assist coachees to design SMARTER experiments, that is, learning experiments that are not only SMART, they are Evaluated and Refined through an iterative process of trial and correction. By assisting coachees to become confident and optimistic about their ability to conduct learning experiments, coaches become catalysts for growth and change.

 

Participants will:
» Identify and explore their own beliefs and habits

And will leave the session with:
» New habits that will have an immediate, positive impact on their ability to communicate at work and at home

» A self-coaching strategy they can use to continue improving their communication skills long after they leave the workshop

Co-coaching: The Partnership Between District Support and School-based Coaches

By Keysha McIntyre

+ session info

Who’s coaching the coach?  Effective coaches need partnership development and knowledge of how to guide teachers to make continuous improvement in their teaching practices.  This session will provide a definition for co-coaching and a co-coaching model that can be used by district support, administrators and coaches to set up coaching and student-focused goals.  Participants will be provided tools to collect data and reflect on the co-coaching process. This session is intended for teachers, coaches, and administrators.

Takeaways from this session include:

  1. A model for co-coaching
  2. Tools to collect data
  3. Reflection tools for partners

The Instructional Playbook

By Sharon Thomas

+ session info

In settings where a clearly defined set of teaching strategies already exists, this workshop guides coaches and others (e.g., administrators) through the development of an instructional playbook. This overview is based on The Instructional Playbook: The Missing Link in Translating Research into Practice (2019) by Jim Knight, Ann Hoffman, Michelle Harris, and Sharon Thomas.

Leadership Self-Efficacy and The Stories We Tell Ourselves

By Kristin Anderson

+ session info

A ‘better leader’ is a leader with a high level of leadership self-efficacy (LSE). Research has identified concrete steps to improve LSE. These methods are often mediated by feedback loops that we translate to understand ourselves and our effectiveness. These are the stories we tell ourselves about who we are, how we are performing and how we are seen.  This session will explore personal storytelling and the influence of narratives upon our work and our identity. We will explore ways to reveal the invisible narratives that hold us back from fulfilling our potential, discovering how to re-author our dominant narrations to take back our ‘storytelling rights’ for ourselves and those we lead.

The Space Between Two People: The Conversation Is the Relationship

By Kim Richardson

+ session info

When coaches/leaders begin to engage in formal leadership roles, coaching and leadership is practiced and learned on the job. Come learn about the strategies and skills that are developed in the space between people!

Gathering Data

By Ann Hoffman

+ session info

Data gathering is critical to effective instructional coaching because it helps make the invisible visible by providing the capacity to assess the kinds of questions being asked in the classroom, the use of instructional time, and student engagement. Based on the Data Toolkit in The Impact Cycle (2017) and the data-gathering information included in Focus on Teaching (2014) by Jim Knight, this workshop presents the data points needed to help teachers obtain a clear picture of reality, set goals, and monitor progress toward goals. Participants will be guided through several methods of gathering data to determine specific areas for improvement.

Holistic Leadership: Moving Learning Communities from Either/Or to Both/And

By Jane Kise

+ session info

Leadership—whether you are a teacher leader, an instructional coach, a building administrator, or a district leader–involves ongoing dilemmas. Unfortunately, too often in education we act as if we can solve them once and for all. Think of the reading wars, teacher accountability without adequate support, ongoing struggles with standardizing what is taught—think of the pendulum swings in what educators are asked to do because we over-focus on what seems like a solution only to create more problems! In this session, you’ll:

  • Learn to spot “polarities” — interdependent sets of values that require both/and thinking
  • Work with the “Clarity AND Flexibility” polarity in the context of implementing school initiatives. How do we implement what is best for students and ensure that educators have the autonomy they need to stay motivated?
  • Identify one personal priority for working with the Clarity AND Flexibility polarity

Re-writing Professional Leadership Narratives; Learning from Coaching Research for Better Practice

By Rachel Lofthouse

+ session info

Every school leader is unique, and their professional narratives are career-long and intricate, but too often their storylines hold tension. When leaders experience an “erosion of their resilience”, we need to be concerned and we need to find solutions. Coaching isn’t a shiny solution, in fact it can take the gloss off the stories we tell ourselves about our wellbeing and our reality, and show us the raw underbelly, but that can allow us to take positive action. Recent research in the UK illustrates the power of specialist coaching to allow school leaders to re-frame their past narratives and to re-imagine and re-shape their futures. This session will reveal narratives of education leadership and the potential of coaching in creating rich and positive real-life stories.

Coach Mindsets

By Joellen Killion

+ session info

Coaches’ words, thoughts, and actions are driven by their mindsets. In this session, participants will examine three predominant coach mindsets, factors that typically influence those mindsets, and the ways those mindsets influence coaches’ decisions and work. In addition, participants will examine multiple ways to shift their current mindset to become more flexible and responsive to the client needs.

Check Yourself

By Aretha Lee

+ session info

Have you felt stressed or overwhelmed this school year? Is your job constantly evolving as you work in an era of improvement and accountability? Does it seem like your teachers never apply the best practices you share?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, self-care may be solution you seek.  In this session, you will check yourself, define your stressors, utilize the room to learn from each other, explore practical ways to maintain your sanity in the midst of chaos, and discover ways to practice self-care and mindfulness while on the job. Participants will walk away with tools and notes of inspiration to remind them that they are greater than the sum of their parts.

Nine Professional Conversations: A Dashboard of Options

By Bill Sommers

+ session info

As technology substitutes for face-to-face connections, educators can feel like they’re practicing their craft in isolation. The nine frameworks, found in education and business, will help revitalize the art of the professional conversations while providing more options for a diversity of issues.

You will learn:

  1. Nine conversational strategies designed to promote collective teacher efficacy
  2. Strategies to focus on student and staff learning that can be used in real time

Face-to-face conversational skill is a fundamental foundation for establishing effective relationships and collaboration in an ever-changing environment. Technology can keep those relationships meaningful and strong while physical distancing is still required. Physical distancing doesn’t have to mean social and emotional distancing.

The Impact Cycle

By Michelle Harris

+ session info

This session is an introduction to the coaching cycle proposed for instructional coaches. All teachers, schools, and classrooms face their own unique challenges. An established process for guiding the coaching experience ensures that instructional coaches have all of the tools they need to help teachers set and achieve their goals. The Impact Cycle–the productof 20 years of ICG research (see instructionalcoaching.com/research)–provides a framework for any coaching scenario. Participants in this workshop will learn why the cycle is successful.

Leading Conversations About Racism and Equity

By Natasha L. Robinson

+ session info

Some questions offer solutions to issues we do not understand. Asking the wrong questions and following a single narrative can lead us down a mistaken path. Other questions draw us into deeper awareness. We need to ask questions, both personal and systemic, that help us increase our knowledge about racism. Beyond understanding, educators have the critical role of leading the challenge of our imaginations (how we see ourselves, each other, and the world) and building for a more equitable future. Expounding upon her “Coaching for Cross-Cultural Competency” conversation with Jim Knight, Natasha L. Robinson will explore this responsibility while challenging and equipping attendees to learn from themselves, their peers, and their students.

Leadership & Coaching

By Rowena Shurn

+ session info

In this session, participants will examine 21st-century coaching through lens diversity, equity, and cultural competency. As a learning community, we will unpack the structures for creating synergy between and among building-level and community leaders. Finally, we will explore power mapping within the school community to identify leaders to help create change within systems and structures.

Coaching on the Continuum: Building Teacher Capacity for Distance Learning Success

By Alisa Simeral

+ session info

In the midst of all questions and uncertainty, leaders must lead. They must not only manage the current daily realities but give others a sense of hope and determination. So what does this tangibly look like and sound like right now? We leverage the the unknowns and empower teachers to see themselves as learners, building their capacity. We practice and encourage specific reflection – reflection that leads to shifted mindset. Let’s not let uncertainty hinder and paralyze our leadership. This session will tackle strategies that can be used to coach for distance learning success.

GROWTH Talk: Making Every Conversation Count

By John Campbell 
and Chris Munro

+ session info

In this interview John Campbell and Chris Munro, authors of the upcoming book GROWTH Talk, explore how contemporary leadership thinking and practice align with key skills and approaches of effective coaching.

Leaders using a coaching approach can help to make even brief incidental interactions, learning conversations, even transformational conversations.

Instructional Coaching and Teachers’ Professional Growth Plans (PGPs)

By Steve Barkley

+ session info

Most teachers have an opportunity or a requirement to complete a personal professional growth plan. Too often this process is trivial, consuming teacher and administrator time with little impact on student learning. In this session, we will explore how instructional coaches can support teachers in…

  • Developing meaningful PGPs driven by a desire to impact student outcomes
  • Creating an hypothesis that is the focus of the PGP
  • Designing evidence collecting processes that encourage on-going reflection, modification, and risk-taking
  • Sharing personal learning to build peers’ learning
  • Building coachability into the school culture
