Get the tools and strategies needed to transform how you think about school supervision that builds capacity, leadership, and learning. This book will help you:

  • Learn to use neuroscience research productively
  • Expand your use of communication skills
  • Understand examples of leaders implementing coach-like behaviors into everyday practice to produce results 
  • Learn specific approaches to supervise and coach for growth 
  • Approach difficult conversations that impact thinking and change with confidence

At the crux of coaching culture is mindset—this book will teach you how to cultivate a growth  mindset and strong emotional intelligence as you coach and  grow  capacity in others.

"RESULTS Coaching Next Steps invites leaders to function as coaches and clearly teaches them how to coach. It is truly transformational for those unfamiliar with coach leadership and for veteran coaches alike. This book transformed me as a school principal and continues to serve as a fundamental resource in training school leaders. It is without a doubt my top recommendation to anyone who asks how to learn coach-leader skills."

"Education is about change and growth in people. Results Coaching Global's first book Results Coaching: The New Essential for School Leaders completely reframed educational leadership landscape. Now RESULTS Coaching Next Steps: Leading for Growth and Change brings out the details in the picture of leading learning systems. This book provides specific examples related to the mindset of the Coach Leader and thoroughly examines supervision vs. coaching. Everything you need to create a culture of coaching in your district is laid out beautifully. As a superintendent, I've seen firsthand the impact this work has had on principals, midlevel administrators and cabinet level leadership. The bottom line—the significant changes we are looking for come from changing educators from within. It is a journey and RESULTS Coaching Next Steps: Leading for Growth and Change is the guidebook."
