COACHING, LEADING & TEACHING FOR EQUITY
Building Relationships, Resilience, Centering Equity and Culturally Responsive Practice
Helping you to master
Coaching and Communication Skills in
actual or hybrid settings
The Covid 19 pandemic and the explosion of attention and action addressing 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 growth, and to support team members through stressful conditions.
Transitioning to hybrid systems
The pandemic provided unique opportunities for interactive work using on-line platforms. Current conditions allow for some groups to return to in-person coaching and professional development, while others will create a hybrid system, mixing in on-line when appropriate. I can empower you to maintain the efficiency discovered in on-line work, with the essential relationship and community building that takes place in person. I can support you to create effective communities of practice that allow for risk taking, deeper learning, and transformative skill development, utilizing the best of both systems.
Culturally Responsive Practice
I can support you and your team to work more effectively across differences, and support leadership of under-represented team members. Culturally responsive practice integrates examining social identities and the impact of racism and other ‘isms, while bringing together tools from social and emotional learning, radical empathy, and anti-bias work. I enjoy addressing conflict as a means to deepen understanding, as well as learning from others and stretching my own world view.
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.
