Pivotal leadership coaching will build skills to:

  • Create alignment of leadership growth of individuals to organizational goals.
  • Become laser-focused on what changes in leadership behaviors can impact individual and organizational growth.
  • Drive outcomes based on goal setting and action planning aligned to a leader’s desired areas of development.

  • Curriculum and Instruction - lead the campus in the areas of C&I through monitoring of implementation, alignment, assessment, and student learning outcomes.
  • Culture - create a positive school culture by defining the type of culture you want to work in and provide for your staff (This is not one of the 7 strands of AEL, but is a theme).
