“Nah, I don’t need a Coach.”

As a School Principal, I remember saying this.  Surely sitting down with somebody who has never been a Principal or perhaps even a School Leader at all, is just going to be a series of regular hours lost that I could actually use working.

But what if you could sit down with somebody who knew the challenges, who knew the demands, who knew the pressures, who knew the work and who understood the vision you have for a better school?  That’s why I built the Real Schools Executive Coaching Program.

We’ve been pretty low-key about it so far.  It’s important to get a few ‘runs on the board’.  We’re now convinced that we’re onto something.  Have a read of what one Coaching Client, Sally Cahill, has said about her first year in the program:

Moving up the “leadership ladder” into a key role, I realised that I needed to improve my own skills if I wanted to do more than just “manage” people, rather to lead a successful and meaningful team who combined their gifts and talents to achieve a united goal.

I strongly desired to create and shape a culture that valued innovation, creativity, team building and positivity.  

The Real Schools Exec Coaching Program encouraged me to do that. It challenged my ideas, exposed me to a new ways of thinking, allowed me to experiment with new elements and expanded my perceptions of what it meant to be an effective leader.

As a result, I’ve been able to formulate a working model of leadership, connect better with people and establish strategic and explicit goals.

The coaching program has empowered me to invest and influence these skills in myself, my team and the wider school community.
I encourage you to go on the journey. You will emerge changed, motivated and inspired in order to lead change, motivate and inspire those around you.

If this sounds ok to you, here’s a way to dip your toe in the water:

  • Click here to visit our dedicated Executive Coaching Page where you can watch a brief Introductory Video.
  • Email for the White Paper “Solving the Problem of the Over-Worked, Over-Accountable and Highly Distractible School Leader”.  This free White Paper is the research and experience based foundation behind a transformational 12 month journey.

Of course, if Sally’s story doesn’t sound like a journey worth taking … Nah, you don’t need a coach!
