I recently began training to become a professional life coach. I quickly saw the benefits of using coaching strategies in my classroom. A lot of it was things I had done for years, but much of it helped shape a new vision for me as a teacher. I wanted to use coaching to empower students to create a vision for their lives that would lead to a motivation and purpose for my students.
I have found that many of my students can create a goal, but can't formulate the steps they need to complete that goal. This brought me to a process of coaching students through the process of building an action plan to make goals attainable.
I was curious about how other educators have used coaching techniques and the results you have seen from implementing the strategies?
