Discover coaching strategies to inspire greatness in any educational leader!

Centered on evocative coaching, a person-centered, no-fault, strengths-based coaching model, this book will equip those who coach educational leaders to host engaging and productive coaching conversations. Coaches who read this book will learn to LEAD: Listen, Empathize, Appreciate, and Design, as well as to discover:

  • Guidance for coaching leaders with specific questions, things to listen for, and ways to generate new ideas and motivation
  • Research-based theories that ground the strategies presented in each chapter
  • Real-life vignettes that illustrate the evocative coaching model in action
  • Reflection and discussion questions, templates, and other materials to scaffold the learning of coaches as they innovate their way forward

 

"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."

In The Press

"We expect a lot from principals. They have to be managers as well as instructional leaders, and work with a variety of stakeholders all at a time when we ask them to do more with less. Fortunately, coaching is a way to help them negotiate these waters, and it is a tried and true method of professional development that helps leaders grow as learners and become better leaders. As usual, Megan Tschannen-Moran does an amazing job of providing a case for coaching and offering a step-by-step process on how to make it impactful. Tschannen-Moran is one of my favorite researchers because of her extensive work in the area of self-efficacy and collective efficacy, and when you read Evoking Greatness you will see why her work will continue to be important for decades to come."
