Individual School Leader Coaching

The responsibilities of a school leader are demanding, stressful, lonely, and oftentimes lack the support needed to accomplish the mission and goals of the school. We work with school leaders who want to minimize obstacles, while elevating their achievement results. Individual school leader coaching provides a safe environment for you to articulate current challenges, leverage strengths, and develop your leadership toolbox - allowing you to realize maximal leadership success. We customize the coaching experience to best support your goals and individual style.


Coaching simply speeds up a process of change that would most likely occur anyway if an individual had enough time. Without a coaching program that forces a client to focus and make time, people sometimes miss the real issues they need to focus on.

The Principal role is a complex one. My experience with Michael has allowed me to clarify my role and to implement practical and successful structures at my school in several areas of need. Having a thinking partner makes this role more manageable and focused on the appropriate levers for success. I am thankful for Michael’s guidance, insights and professional coaching. I look forward to continuing my work with him in the future.
