Why publish another book on coaching? While there are numerous books covering coaching tools and techniques, most share a common focus on goal-setting and goal achievement. This book offers a rare alternative perspective that focuses on reflective learning as the starting point for professional growth, and illustrates how coaches can apply this approach in coaching meetings. Drawing on their research and experiences of developing professional learning programmes for coaches, the authors identify three kinds of learning in coaching: - the learning of new skills and competences - learning to see something differently - learning more about the self in practice (reflective learning). The authors contend that while learning of the first and second kinds are well supported in coaching practice, more attention to learning of the third kind is needed. An emphasis on self-reflection, for both coaches and coachees, can lead to more effective, transformative and sustained change to practice. Using case studies and examples of successful coaching meetings, this thought-provoking book explores this reflective model of coaching. It also examines current debates in coaching; issues to do with self-identity and power relationships; why peer coaching and supervision are important; and how coaching can play a significant role in an organisation’s learning. Transformative Coaching will be especially useful for coaches and students of coaching working in education organisations, including those who offer accredited coaching courses. It is also relevant to all learning professionals, particularly from the education, medical, legal and social services sector and to any organisations that place importance on supporting learning.

This book explores notions of justice-oriented literacy coaching and offers a way of being in the world with young people, teachers, and communities that centers transformative coaching, teaching, and learning. It is intended to disrupt the traditional and historical positioning of literacy coaches in schools today. Through the lens of social justice and liberatory education, Sailors and Manning begin a dialogue with literacy coaches to help them reconsider their own roles and positions as agents of change in schools. Using vignettes and stories to illustrate potential paths into emancipatory literacy learning environments, the authors present literacy as a socially-situated act of meaning-making. Accessible and inviting, this book provides pragmatic tools for literacy leaders to embody social justice, to grapple with big social concepts, to imagine possibilities, and to stimulate creative thinking with the teachers at their schools and with the students in their classrooms. Intended for literacy coaches in grades K-6 and graduate students in literacy education, this book includes a wealth of resources and examples from real-world contexts, as well as spaces for the reader to interact and engage with the text through journaling and self-reflection.

Organisations continue to look for ways to increase shareholder value. After they downsize and rightsize, leaders look to maximise the return on their human capital investment. Coaching, when delivered throughout the organisation, has been found to be a particularly effective and powerful means of creating transformational, cultural change. Organisations with a growth mentality use coaching to recognise and unleash the potential of all employees. The book is an informative source of practical strategies and mechanisms to successfully develop and embed a coaching culture into an organisation. CEOs, senior executives, organisational leaders and HR professionals will benefit from the structured approach to changing organisational thinking and behaving to bring about cultural change. Leaders can checklist where they are on their journey to embedding a coaching culture and identify any gaps they need to fill, plus the next steps they need to take to become a fully transformed organisation benefitting from increased staff engagement, productivity improvements and the retention of talented staff. Four discrete stages that organisations go through to develop a coaching culture have been identified from my research. These stages relate to organisational leaders' understanding of coaching, motivation for coaching, key drivers of coaching throughout the organisation and the people who deliver the coaching. Processes and strategies for organisations to transition from one stage to the next are detailed. The educational, psychological and management strategies and mechanisms by which organisational leaders learn, grow and behave differently as the organisation transitions from one stage to the next are revealed. Implications for CEO and senior executives, HR professionals and organisational leaders are outlined.

This research aimed to develop coaching process based on transformative learning theory for changing the mindset about instruction of elementary school teachers. Tools used in this process include mindset tests and questionnaires designed to assess the instructional mindset of teachers and to allow the teachers to reflect on how they perceive themselves and their role as educators. Additionally, in accordance with the transformative process, guidance is provided to improve their instructional mindset. Because validation and verification are an essential aspect of the transformative process, the tests and questionnaires that were developed have been reviewed by nine experts resulting in a validity of 97% and 81%. The feedback and recommendations from the experts was applied to the improvement of the tests, questionnaires and teacher's guidance. The revised material was administered to seventy elementary school teachers, resulting in reliability scores of 76%, 82%, and 87%, demonstrating the tests' ability to separate the strong and weak teachers. Consequently, it was found that a coaching process based on transformative learning theory for changing the mindset in instruction of elementary school teachers, implemented within the context of the teacher's own place of work through learning experiences, thorough thinking, best practices, and teacher's interaction, allowed them to change their mindset which was evidenced in their behaviors.

Calling Up is a guide for coaches of all sports at all levels that presents a step-by-step process to building a transformational culture, starting with changing coaching behaviors, attitudes, and language. Modern-day coaches face the same challenges every day: entitled youth, overinvolved parents, and the community and administration’s expectation for wins. Coaching does not just take a great deal of time; it takes an emotional and physical toll, and coaches need to know they are not the only ones facing these struggles. After over 11 years of coaching, and his own coaching philosophy transformation, J.P. Nerbun felt called to share the hard lessons that could not be found in a book when he started coaching. Calling Up provides an easily accessible and inspiring story as J.P. details the transformative experience of a high school basketball coach named Daniel and his year-long struggle to keep his job while working to become the coach he always wanted to be. Apart from the entertaining and relatable story, which connects with coaches on a personal level, Calling Up provides coaches with principles based on scientific research and personal experience that explore how people learn, what motivates them, and the human condition. These principles are shared by some of the most highly qualified and successful coaches in sports and J.P. also provides specific tools and explains how those tools are applied within the context of a team. At the end of the day, Calling Up shows coaches not just how to build great athletes, but how to build great people.
