Notice reference #: 1HAHMJ

Our new topic for 2021 is 'Honing up your Coaching Habit'

The first stage of coaching is ‘silence’....the second stage is ‘listening’.

What Learning Leaders think, do and say every day.

The goals for Learning Leaders are twofold. They need to develop their own theory of leadership rather than adopt someone else’s. This personalised learning theory will support the ongoing goal of successfully leading a learning organisation while being committed to the learning of themselves and those they lead.

Leadership is traditionally viewed as a competency-based skill and seen as something people do rather than who we are, who we need to become and who we can become by BEING.

Are you ready to activate a ‘culture of thinking and learning’  for all members of your learning community?

Q. How do we define a ‘culture of thinking and learning?”
A. One that commits to learning for every single person who is part of that learning community. 

We cannot expect to have one culture in the learning environment for children, and another for adults where the same principles don’t apply. Developing thinkers and learners in kaiako is just as important as in tamariki.

This professional learning programme will support leaders and kaiako who are committed to:

Honing their coaching skills

Lifting their evaluative practices – linked to Internal Evaluation and Professional Growth Cycles

Learning new strategies for developing trust, courage and conversations that lead to possibilities of developing self and others.
