The Art of Coach­ing Teams Insti­tute addresses the key skills that lead­ers need to develop high func­tion­ing teams. Any­one who facil­i­tates or leads teams — coaches, teach­ers and admin­is­tra­tors — will ben­e­fit from this highly inter­ac­tive train­ing. You will walk away with tools to use imme­di­ately as well as with a vision for devel­op­ing resilient com­mu­ni­ties of edu­ca­tors. The basis for this learn­ing is a set of “Effec­tive Facil­i­ta­tor Com­pe­ten­cies” that can be used as a self-​assessment tool to iden­tify areas for learn­ing and growth. The con­tent of this insti­tute expands on Elena Aguliar’s book, The Art of Coach­ing Teams: Build­ing Resilient Com­mu­ni­ties of Edu­ca­tors (Feb­ru­ary 2016). This work­shop will be led by Noelle Apos­tol Colin.

Participants will :

  • Iden­tify effec­tive ways to struc­ture meet­ings and agendas.

  • Develop the abil­ity to ensure meet­ing time is pur­pose­ful and meaningful.

  • Hone their capac­ity to increase the emo­tional intel­li­gence of a team (and their own!)

  • Expand their def­i­n­i­tion of trans­for­ma­tional lead­er­ship and reflect on who they want to be as a leader.

  • Increase their abil­ity to cul­ti­vate, repair and deepen trust among a team.

  • Refine their abil­ity to address resistance.

  • Improve their abil­ity to cre­ate strong agen­das that incor­po­rate the prin­ci­ples of adult learning.

  • Reflect on and strengthen their com­mit­ment to teams.Increase their capac­ity to facil­i­tate healthy con­flict and man­age unhealthy con­flict in meetings.

Who Should Attend

This pro­gram is ideal for coaches, teacher lead­ers, depart­ment heads, admin­is­tra­tors — any­one who leads a team. This pro­gram builds on the learn­ing from Elena Aguliar’s pop­u­lar Art of Coach­ing Pro­gram, but can also stand alone.

Noelle is grate­ful to have grown up in the diverse city of Hous­ton, Texas. Attend­ing Houston’s pub­lic schools, she befriended peo­ple from dif­fer­ent racial and socioe­co­nomic back­grounds and devel­oped appre­ci­a­tion for dif­fer­ence among peo­ple, as well as an aware­ness of inequal­ity. These expe­ri­ences deeply influ­ence her work today.

After teach­ing ele­men­tary school for many years, Noelle shifted her focus to devel­op­ing healthy staff cul­tures in schools, rec­og­niz­ing that schools must be healthy adult learn­ing orga­ni­za­tions to achieve trans­for­ma­tional out­comes for his­tor­i­cally under­served stu­dents. Noelle became an instruc­tional coach and lead­er­ship coach to help develop school lead­ers to be reflec­tive prac­ti­tion­ers, in close com­mu­nity with one another, and capa­ble of some­thing new and truly worth­while. Noelle has worked with Elena Agu­liar since 2012 and is a cer­ti­fied Art of Coach­ing trainer.
