Case Study : Coaching at the Start of a Major Project

Posted by Amanda Furness

A headteacher was tasked with merging her successful school with a less successful neighbouring school. Through coaching she was able to identify the detail of the challenges faced, create a vision and action plan for bringing the second school up to standard. She created autonomy within her senior team, enabling her to delegate effectively. She also created a communications strategy to involve staff, parents and the wider community. We also focused on maintaining her own energies and work-life balance.
