  • Module II: Creating and Sustaining Academic Excellence
    • Phase II: Application and Integration
  • Module III: Advanced Coaching

Module I: Leadership Potentials Training™

3 Consecutive, 10-Hour Training Days

To learn more about Module I, review the 3-Day Leadership Potentials Training description.

Phase I: Application and Integration

Approximately 8 Weeks

Between modules, participants will gain further experience as they participate in peer groups, peer coaching, mentoring coaching, teleclasses, and webinars over the course of approximately eight weeks. It is during this phase that participants are given the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned directly within their environment, raise their comfort level and confidence in these new approaches, and further enrich their understanding through the additional insights of mentoring, teleclasses, and webinars.

Module II: Creating and Sustaining Academic Excellence

2 Consecutive, 8-Hour Training Days

In this second module, participants will explore the filters through which they see the world and their environment—and discover how they influence their day-to-day behaviors and responses to situations at work and in life. By gaining this awareness, participants will learn how to dramatically improve the way they show up at work—practicing better engagement behaviors, cultivating these same behaviors in others, and overall, contributing to a more positive work environment.

Participants will explore the seven levels of energy, which reveal one’s default tendencies (the most typical way that anyone thinks about, perceives, feels, and acts based on their circumstances). They will also learn how to work with these default tendencies in a leadership capacity in order to shift areas that are presenting blocks and increase areas that are fueling performance.

The entire discussion is set in the context of the educational arena and is applicable to those in the myriad of leadership and staff positions throughout the system. Working through scenarios, participants integrate coaching competencies into instructional leadership, the monitoring of student and campus progress, the creating of shared leadership, home-school relations, and other critical education leadership topics.

Learning Objectives:
  • Integrating and learning the dynamic use of coaching competencies
  • Direct application of learned competencies to individual, social, and organizational scenarios
  • Understanding of the first of two key leverage components (Capacity) and associated coaching skills that drive Total Engaged Energy
Core Skills/Topics:
  • Values, validating, and acknowledging
  • Shifting perceptions to shift Capacity
  • Recognizing which individual or organizational tendencies are inhibiting or driving engagement
  • Identifying individual and organization engagement trends (in real time)
  • Building communities of shared leadership, dynamic and high-energy teams, and engaging and effective relationships

Phase II: Application and Integration

Approximately 8 Weeks

Phase II is an advanced application of what participants have learned. Participants begin to embed methodologies into their individual and organizational work processes. They focus on creating a system and environment that supports sustainability of their own and others’ engagement and performance levels.

Module III: Advanced Coaching for Educational Leaders

2 consecutive, 8-hour training days

In this third module, participants will dive deeply into the final factors that drive optimal engagement (i.e. Total Engaged Energy). They will learn, understand, and work with those factors that increase both willingness and ability at an individual and organizational level.

These driving factors of engagement are discussed from multiple positions throughout the educational system. This aspect of the training not only demonstrates how to optimize personal engagement, but significantly expands each participant’s understanding of how other positions and jobs view a campus or district’s current circumstances, challenges, needs, goals, and desired outcomes. This shifts engagement and strengthens holistic and strategic thinking, while building greater knowledge of how the interconnected system functions as a whole.
