Master Coaching and Communication Skills

The Covid 19 pandemic and the explosion of attention and actions on racism makes every gathering of two or more adults an entry point into equity-focused conversation.

So that you as a leader—and the team you support— can continue to thrive throughout these challenging times, I will help you foster coaching and communication skills, cultivate resilience, provide data-based observation and feedback, and center equity conversations to promote individual growth and address systemic inequities.

Power Up With Online Tools

The pandemic has provided unique opportunities for interactive work using on-line platforms. I can empower you to convert the ways you formerly gathered in-person to on-line, while emphasizing interactive dialog, constructivist learning, personal connection, and getting things done. Learn more about navigating the pandemic.

Promoting Culturally Responsive Practice

Culturally responsive practice integrates examining social identities and culture, tools from social emotional learning,  anti-bias work, relationship building, and achieving rigorous standards for teachers and leaders.  I will help you integrate a culturally responsive lens into the work you do. As a white-identified woman leading and learning from this work, I can also help support other white people looking at the role of “whiteness” in cultivating anti-racist, culturally responsive  practices, while supporting and learning from people of color in the organization.

Working Together in Support of Your Education Goals

To support clients’ reflective practices leading to powerful action in pursuit of goals in education and other work settings, I draw on a variety of resources in coaching, consulting, interactive professional development, and meeting facilitation. I’ve worked extensively with schools, school districts, and Induction programs, and am now offering the same services to non-profits and businesses as well. Learn more about me.
