About This Program:

This work­shop begins by reflect­ing on your own emo­tional resilience, then explor­ing and prac­tic­ing coach­ing strate­gies to do sim­i­lar work with oth­ers. Coaches play a crit­i­cal role in cul­ti­vat­ing an educator’s abil­ity to man­age stress and respond to adver­sity, and there­fore, coaches can medi­ate the impact of burnout, includ­ing high turnover of teach­ers. To do this, coaches need a refined and spe­cific skillset to under­stand emo­tions, know how and where to inter­vene in an emo­tional cycle, and build the capac­ity of another to man­age their emo­tional experiences.

Participants Will:

  • Employ var­i­ous approaches to respond to and man­age the emo­tions of self and others
  • Under­stand the cycle of an emo­tion and the great­est points of inter­ven­tion to build resilience
  • Know how to build the habits of a resilient edu­ca­tor and under­stand the dis­po­si­tions that are strength­ened by doing so
  • Iden­tify moments where resilience can be cul­ti­vated and use a range of strate­gies to do so
  • Con­nect efforts to build resilience in adults to the task of cre­at­ing equi­table schools and trans­form­ing the expe­ri­ences of children
