Purposeful Coaching - Curriculum Facilitators/Lead Teachers

  1. 1. PURPOSEFUL INSTRUCTIONAL COACHING October 11, 2012 Dr. Beth Metcalf Instructional Coach
  2. 2. http://purposefulcoaching.wikispaces.com /
  3. 3. Fundamental Beliefs Teachers/educators are capable adults who, with the right mix of understanding and engagement, are well equipped to improve the quality and outcomes of their instruction. Mastery in any profession, including teaching, is a lifelong journey.
  4. 4. Fundamental Approach You cannot teach a person anything. You can only help him find it within himself. GALILEO
  5. 5. Fundamental are Based on Adult Learning      Adults are autonomous and self-directed. Adult learning builds on a wide variety of previous experiences, knowledge, mental models, selfdirection, interests, resources, and competencies. Adult learning needs to be facilitated rather than directed. Adults want to be treated as equals and shown respect both for what they know and how they prefer to learn. Adults need specific behavioral feedback that is free of evaluative or judgmental opinions. Adults need follow-up support to continue and advance their learning over time.
  6. 6. Coaching is Important Leadership Leadership is communicating to people their worth and potential so clearly that they come to see it in themselves. Stephen Covey
  7. 7. Reflection on Self-Assessment  Are there trends?  What questions do you need to have answered today?
  8. 8. The Impact of Coaching
  9. 9. The Coaching Continuum as a Basis     Directive Collaborative Consultative/Non-Directive Transformative
  10. 10. Coaching Continuum At the heart of the coaching continuum is the concept that each of us has resources that enable us to grow and change from within. Costa and Garmston
  11. 11. The Continuum Supports Purpose Linking Goals to Outcomes Matching Outcomes to Coaching Alignment Between Goals, Outcomes, and Coaching Creates Purpose……IMPACT!
  12. 12. Purposeful Tool #1- Know the Coaching Continuum Continuum of Coaching and Developmental Support Directive Collaborative Consultative/NonDirective The capacity builder controls the coaching interactions. The capacity builder guides the interaction without controlling it. The educator guides the interaction with support from capacity builder. Modeling lessons, providing resources, role playing, journaling, short term goals, shows “the way”. Guiding activities, focused observations, providing limited options, encouraging workshop attendance, conducting peer observations, Facilitate transition into new roles, analysis of own performance in absence of coach, peer collaboration, action research on own practice, engage in reviewing curriculum and development, The person being developed can be unaware, rigid, fearful, and/or sometimes selfprotective, and generally remains in the conventional way of doing work. The person being developed is rule oriented, concerned with acceptance, and still has a tendency to return to the conventional while interested in what is new. The person being developed is conscientious, goal oriented, self-critical, efficient, and developing inner standards. Transformative The educator leads the interaction with the capacity builder, while the coach provides support and cognitive disequilibrium. Provide many options for growth, facilitate networking with other professionals, review self-growth goals, give them the power to become a change agent, facilitate supporting the work of other colleagues. The person is developing new paradigms and shows signs of autonomous growth. They are flexible, deals openly with complex issues, welcomes options and opportunities, strives for interdependence within their school/district environment, unselfishly wishes for others to grow. Often shows great frustration in difficult, static school settings. Continuum by Dr. B. Metcalf--From the research of Loevinger (1984), Oja (1997, 1993), Hunt (1977), Britzman (1986), Bloom et al (2005), Danielson (2007)
  13. 13. Purposeful Tool #2-Listening Positive Listening-are you listening for the good? It takes longer for the human brain to process a negative statement than a positive statement. What are the expectations of an adult when you are asked to listen? Table talk.
  14. 14. A Purposeful Tool-Know Your Listening Autobiographical listening -85% of all listening thoughts of themselves, their concerns, their stories. A constant relationship with self. Well…let me tell you about this kids I had….In my classroom I….. Inquisitive listening asking questions of the listener that ARE NOT relevant asking for lots of details does not necessarily coach forwards without outcomes and goals this is common Solution listening waiting to tell someone what you think they should do coaching is about support of another’s growth, not giving answers help them create their own answers
  15. 15. Checking for Listening SetAsides… Do I? •I mentally check my coat of "SELF" when entering the door of a coaching conversation. •When coaching, I am aware of when one of "my stories" begins to enter my thinking, and I block it. •While listening (active), I garner information—not for mere curiosity, but to understand—so that I may pose a question
  16. 16. Checking for Listening SetAsides • I free myself of "should" thinking when coaching so that I do not slip into offering solutions. • When I catch myself rehearsing a response, I stop myself and stay focused on verbals and non-verbals of the other person and focus on a “continuum question”. • I am aware of some of my filters and set them aside so as to remain open to hearing the person I am coaching.
  17. 17. Try Listening …..  While listening (active), I garner information—not for mere curiosity, but to understand.
  18. 18. If I am really listening…    I am collecting information I am thinking of their place and purpose I am focused on the speakers goals and progress!
  19. 19. Purposeful Tool #3Conversation    If you can’t listen-STOP HERE! Don’t confuse your ability to ask questions with good coaching conversation skills. The conversation is your entry point. The stories that teachers share reframe and claim where they want to go.
  20. 20. Purposeful Tool-Conversation  Conversation Points of Skilled Coaches:  Initiate  Elaborate  Validate  Appreciate  Extrapolate  Innovate  Activate  Commit
  21. 21. Mediational Language-STOP Mediational Questions •What went on in your mind when ...? •What would be your criteria for this to be ...? •How is ... different (like) ...? •When is another time you need to ...? •What do you think the problem is ...? •What's another way you might approach this? •What do you think would happen if ...? Approachable Voice , Plural Language , Tentative Language, Positive Presuppositions
  22. 22. Facilitative Language-GO • Setting a goal for the conversation and agreeing on it. • Naming something that isn’t working and getting it out in the open so the group can deal with it. • Record ideas or issues that are deferred and agree on when they will be addressed before the conversation ends. • Reminding the group of a previous agreement or ground rule when the discussion starts going off focus.
  23. 23. Tying a Purposeful Conversation To Stop and Go Language  Initiate  Elaborate  Validate  Appreciate  Extrapolate  Innovate  Activate  Commit
  24. 24. Purposeful Tool #4-Honor the Role of Feelings in the Coaching Tasks  Paying attention to feelings.  Disregarding this is disregarding human nature.  If you don’t know the current state of mind of your coach you likely will not navigate the coaching conversation successfully.
  25. 25. One Way To Honor the Role of Feelings…  Looking for the cues  Acknowledging them  Including them in the conversation if needed  Keeping them from being the center of the task!
  26. 26. Practice Crafting a Conversation  Initiate  Elaborate  Validate  Appreciate  Extrapolate  Innovate  Activate  Commit Appropriate Language
  27. 27. Purposeful Tool #5Know the Seven Archetypal Stories of All Changing Organizations        The Rule Breaker Is the Boss Human The Little Man The Fear Story Will Anyone Help Is It Okay to Make Mistakes Obstacles
  28. 28. To avoid the typical stories…. Don’t ask typical questions!  How did it go? NO  How did you grow? What did you change? What engaged you? Tell me about what has been working well since I last saw you? Tell me any valuable lessons you can reflect on from today? Explain to me your very best moment from the lessons this week? When did your students feel most connected to the lesson?      
  29. 29. Avoid the Typical Story  Can you come up with some other great question starters?  Can you relate those back to the continuum? Are you eliciting the kind of outcomes you want with your questions?
  30. 30. Purposeful Tool #6Don’t Confuse the Task  Supervise, Evaluate, or Coach?  You can’t do it at the same time.  Only you can determine your charge.  Draw clear lines.
  31. 31. Managing vs. Developing Telling/managing undermines autonomy and provokes enemy images, both internal and external. Such interference makes it harder rather than easier for teachers to find motivation and movement (Pink, 2009). It may be commonplace for supervisors, consultants, and trainers to diagnose problems, give instructions, and provide incentives for performance improvement, but these approaches contradict what we know about adult learning. “Change or die” is not an effective threat (Deutschman, 2007).
  32. 32. Managing Vs. Developing At best “facts, fear, and force” generate temporary compliance; at worst they generate resistance and outright rebellion.
  33. 33. Managing vs. Coaching Neither is the enemy of the other. Supervisors are NOT coaches. Supervision is NOT a coaching relationship. Don’t define it that way. You are preparing for failure.
  34. 34. Be Transparent and Trustworthy  Trust to make mistakes and longstanding learning cannot occur when being evaluated.  Evaluation is an event, change is a process.
  35. 35. Purposeful Tool #7 Filters of Perception  Someone’s perception can support them in making a premature cognitive commitment.
  36. 36. Sample Filters of Perception for Educators  Educational Belief Systems  Educators hold deep beliefs about their work; including roles of students, schools, community, and leadership.  Education belief systems are powerful predictors of behavior.  Language Cues: You know how these kids are, this is the best they can do.
  37. 37. Sample Filters of Perception for Educators  Field Dependency  Independent is task-oriented and competitive  Language Cue: Do I have to do this on a committee? Just tell me what to do. Why are we talking so much?  Dependent enjoys others-seeks out collaborative relationships.  Language Cue: I like to write all my lesson plans with my team. We do everything together!
  38. 38. Perception is Reality   Someone’s perception can support them in making a premature cognitive commitment. Some perceptions you run into are…..table talk.
  39. 39. Filters Affect Cognitive Shifts Knowing and recognizing the human variables. Value human diversity and talk about them, figure out where you conscientiously use these variables to create trust and then growth.
  40. 40. Managing Their Filters with Your Filters Are you feeding their need? Do you match too closely what they might need or want to hear? Create Cognitive Disequilibrium Cognitive Disequilibrium and using the Coaching Continuum….how can they work hand in hand?
  41. 41. Purposeful Tool #8 Formalize Coaching Agreements and Logs Formal agreements for coaching elevate expectations Opens communication about the continuum Creates clarity of goals and outcomes/alignment Makes best use of precious time Helps manage large coaching loads Real change takes time and commitment
  42. 42. Sample Components of Agreements • Confidentiality Statement • Specific Coaching Goals • Agreed Upon Times to Meet or Collaborate • How Communication will Occur • Times for Revisiting the Goal
  43. 43. Purposeful Tool #9 Evaluate Your Own Coaching Coaching Professional Code of Ethics (William and Anderson, 2006) International Coach Federation Code of Ethics (certifiedcoach.org) IAC Coaching Masteries Actions and characteristics are universal of masterful coaches and that are measureable and observable. International Association of Coaching, 2009
  44. 44. The IAC Masteries • Establishing and Maintaining a Trusting Relationship • Perceiving, Affirming, and Expanding the Clients Potential • Engaging in Supportive Listening • Processing in the Present • Expressing and Communicating Effectively • Clarifying to Create Understanding and Confidence • Setting and Keeping Clear Intentions • Inviting Possibility • Helping the client identify and create supportive systems and structures
  45. 45. Tying all The Tools Together •Transformative Coaching and the Continuum
  46. 46. The Continuum Supports Purpose Goals to Outcomes Matching Outcomes to Coaching Alignment Between Goals, Outcomes, and Coaching Creates Purpose……IMPACT!
  47. 47. Transformative Coaching Suppose you came upon someone in the woods working to saw down a tree. They are exhausted from working for hours. You suggest they take a break to sharpen the saw. They might reply, " I didn't have time to sharpen the saw, I'm busy sawing!" Working on the important, but not urgent is at the center of having long-term influence on people (transformative change). Adapted from Stephen Covey (1932 -) Source: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
  48. 48. Important but Not Urgent Highly effective people make time for the important but not urgent activities.
  49. 49. Transformative Coaching Moves beyond improved “performance”…. (Strategies, trying new things, being directed) To changing the way of “being”. (leading or integrating into a new identity in the culture)
  50. 50. Indicators of Transformative Change        Using Influence in one’s role with ethics and integrity in the service of all students and their families The proposition that all students can learn is part of who they are Continuous self improvement The proposition that diversity enriches the school Collaboration and communication with families, communities…..in decision making. Trusting people and their judgments and involving them in leadership and management processes Actively participates in the political and policy making context in education.

Notas do Editor

  • Table IntroductionsWhat has been your best learning experience as an adult? What made it so good?
  • Notecard—what do you believe about the people you coach.
  • The Inner Game of Tennis, first published in 1974, by Timothy Gallwey……was a call to limit the use of instructions and incentives in coaching because of their oftentimes debilitating impact on the internal dynamics that make for optimum skill development and performance improvement. Basically you would psych yourself out by “trying to hard”, but when you just practiced and had a mastery of skill you were easy and skillful and felt greater success.
  • Do any of these speak to you as a coach?
  • Use notecards or sticky notes to collect your thoughts. Is there any question you would like to discuss?
  • Fundamental Approach-You cannot teach a person anything. You can only help him find it within himself. Mastery is a life long journey?What do you see?Why do you suppose the Continuum is Tool #1?Self-reflection. Make a list of the last 5-10 coaching activities you were involved in. Where do you spend the majority of your coaching energy?
  • It is easy for coaches to fall into common patterns of communication. Real listening and awareness results in more dynamic interactions. Listening is the first and likley most important service you can provide to your teacher learner. People have the misconception that coaching is about what you say….it’s really about what you do with what you hear and learning.
  • Read the story of Charles (p.222Evoc Coach). You are the department chair’s coach. What did you hear? What information did you garner that helps you understand him?
  • Well structured conversations contain many, many clues for root causes of issues and what tools are needed to solve them.
  • I am not suggesting you script your conversation. What I am suggesting is that there are ways to talk to people that elicit real information. We need coaching informaiton and these conversation points can get us there.
  • Handout-Have the group use the handout to determine which part of the conversation is a stop or which part is a go.
  • P. 223 Ron
  • Why am I telling you this? It’s the stories people tell, but they aren’t thoughtful, they are rehearsed. So when you get them, typically the person has not thought much beyond their normal conversational level of engagement.
  • Table Work on Question Starters…..Chart Paper-Table Shares.
  • Handout….
  • Blank piece of paper---Goal of a person you are coaching. Have you created definable outcomes? List them on sticky notes. One on each sticky note. Turn back to your continuum…can you match those stick notes to the type of coaching you need to be doing? What do you see?
  • Back on your sticky notes…what do you see. Do you see a lot of important but not urgent tasks? If so, think about how you can move to that so you have more transformative coaching.
