Leadership Team Coaching

Leadership teams who fail to work together effectively often contribute to:

  • Conflict that permeates your school environment

  • A significant decline in staff morale

  • An increase in staff turnover

  • A decrease in performance and results

  • A lack of clarity around roles and responsibilities

  • An environment filled with excuses

  • Distrust among team members

  • A lack of commitment

  • An absence of purpose and direction


Highly successful school leaders realize a group of intelligent individuals does not always equal a highly successful leadership team. They recognize teams must be intentional when considering responsibilities, results, and relationships. We work with school leadership teams by customizing a coaching program highly focused on organizational system coaching strategies and tools. These are proven techniques that improve team practices and interpersonal skills - resulting in strong, productive relationships within your group or team.

Michael Gaither has been an invaluable resource to our administrative leadership team at Martin Luther King, Jr. Early College. In my role as assistant principal I can always depend upon his candid feedback regarding the policies and procedures that I have sought to implement in our math, special education and counseling departments. His vast experience at all levels of the educational system affords him the type of insight to ask probing questions which has assisted me in avoiding pitfalls and to focus upon depth of ideals instead of breadth.
