Having a coach has helped me put a microscope on the things I need to work on as a leader. Which we then worked through in a proactive way. It’s helped me catch those opportunities to improve that I might not have seen ... When I’m dealing with big, complicated issues, it’s invaluable to have someone support me to work through the problem and also prompt me to make sure I’m taking care of myself at the same time.

Tailored coaching to help school leaders thrive

The School Leadership Coaching model integrates the Instructional Coaching Cycle and the GROW/GROWTH coaching model to provide a powerful educational lens for all coaching sessions. Our approach is also informed by the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and/or the Australian Professional Standards for Principals, which will further contextualise the coaching conversations.

Combined, these various lens and models will scaffold and guide all conversations between the coach and coachee as they work together to identify goals, plan strategies, and monitor progress and growth. The School Leadership Coaching approach combines the Instructional Coaching Cycle and the GROW/GROWTH coaching model in the following way:


G: Goals - what will you need to achieve?
R: Reality - what is happening now?


O: Options - what could you do?
W: Will - what will you do?


T: Tactics - how and when will you do it?
H: Habits - how will you sustain your success?

Frequently Asked Questions

What is leadership coaching?

Leadership coaching – sometimes called executive coaching or personal coaching – is a one-on-one development experience where you work with a qualified coach to identify your goals, and work towards them.

Leadership coaching provides a safe and supportive space for deepening your self-awareness, leveraging your strengths, exploring your blind spots, and uncovering new perspectives.


Is executive coaching the same as leadership coaching?

Yes, the terms can be used interchangeably. Both Executive Coaching and Leadership Coaching are delivered by a qualified coach and offer a personalised development experience.


How many coaching sessions do I need?

You can choose to enrol in a single coaching session, or multiple sessions. Many coaching participants find three or more sessions allow them to make significant progress with the support of their coach. Discounted rates are available for three-session coaching packages.
