Coaching and Developing Turnaround Leader Actions
School turnaround requires strong leaders with the necessary competencies to succeed, but it also requires leaders to take high-leverage actions. Leaders need to know not only which actions to take, but also when and how to take them in their specific context. Coaching can help school leaders develop these capabilities. Coaching and Developing Turnaround Leader Actions is designed to support leaders and staff members from RCCs, state education agencies, and districts in developing a strategic action plan for supporting school turnaround leaders through coaching. Specifically, participants will:
- Understand the connection between turnaround leader competencies and the actions of successful turnaround principals and leadership teams.
- Learn strategies for coaching and developing turnaround principals and supporting implementation of key turnaround leader actions.
