Using SchoolMint Grow for Leadership Coaching Organizations

Building coaching capacity in school leaders is hard. Here’s how SchoolMint Grow makes it easy.

As an instructional leadership coaching organization, you’ve spent years designing your programs, recruiting participants, and executing high-impact sessions on how to implement coaching in schools.

On surveys, your participants rate your organization highly and say that they find your programs valuable, but you’re not seeing outcomes change in their schools.

With the time and resources your participants have invested in this programming, your organization needs to deliver ROI — and get answers to these questions:

  • Which participants in your program are observing teachers regularly? And who needs a little help to get started coaching?
  • At your organization, “observe regularly” means observing every teacher every week. When your participants say they “observe regularly,” how do you ensure you share the same definition of “observe regularly?”
  • Are my participants writing action steps that are bite-sized and high-leverage?
  • It’s October, and it’s time for our participants to focus their coaching on increasing the rigor of instruction. How do we ensure participants are coaching on this new priority to move the needle on student learning?

Observe, Meet, Repeat: How Do I help My School Leaders Get Their Teachers Better Faster?

High-frequency, high-leverage, rigorous coaching in schools is the reason your organization exists.

You believe that all teachers deserve feedback. And you know that frequent observations, weekly data meetings, and properly sequenced action steps are the key to helping teachers get better faster.

With your programs, you’re spreading the gospel of instructional coaching, creating capacity in leaders to make teachers feel supported and challenged in their work, and continually helping them improve their effectiveness.Subscribe to the schoolmint blog ad

Square Peg, Round Hole: Spreadsheets Don’t Work to Manage Leadership Coaching

Coaching organizations often try to manage leadership coaching using spreadsheets but quickly run into problems:

  • Managing 100+ spreadsheets for all participants is unwieldy at best (and a nightmare at worst).
  • Data isn’t shared in real-time as you must rely on the school leader to share their spreadsheet on their timetable.
  • Spreadsheets provide no easy way to give ongoing feedback to a leader on the coaching work they’re doing with their teachers.
  • Your inbox is a disaster area.

A specially designed coaching platform makes it possible.

Spreadsheets just don’t cut it for instructional leadership coaching organizations trying to build capacity in instructional leaders. They need an intuitive, easy-to-use platform made to help coaching organizations support school leaders: SchoolMint Grow.
