When you hear the word coach, what do you think of? A fancy bus or where most of us sit on planes? Someone giving directions in the moment, calling plays, instructing repeated practice, or providing resources? There are many different types of coaching and evidenced-based coaching strategies. In order to support our students/clients, professionals need to have a variety of coaching strategies in their toolboxes.

During this presentation, relationship-driven, stakeholder-centered, and client-centered models will be discussed, including pros and cons of each. We will also discuss different coaching techniques within each model to help guide participants to choose an appropriate coaching model for their students/clients and setting(s).

As a result of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe at least 3 differences between relationship driven, teacher centered, and student centered coaching.

  • Identify at least 5 clients/students/teams that student-centered coaching would be appropriate for.

  • Identify at least 3 new coaching techniques to support your current caseload.
