I recently ran across this quote from Tom Boasberg, the Superintendent of Denver Public Schools:
The number one overwhelming focus that we have is the quality of our teaching. We’ve significantly increased our investment in teacher leaders who give one-on-one feedback… and teacher collaboration time. The most effective way to help our teachers learn and grow is one-on-one regular coaching and feedback. (emphasis mine)
Coaching has wide applicability across multiple disciplines. What if every teacher had a coach? What if every parent had a coach? What if every pastor had a coach? What if every business owner had a coach? No matter our field, we all need time to focus on our own development so we can improve.
