Personalized 1:1 Coaching for Leadership Growth

As a leader, your work is crucial to the success of teachers and students. But isolation and lack of access to differentiated professional learning opportunities and peers can be challenging. Break through these barriers with expertly matched Executive Coaching. Work one-on-one with an experienced coach to develop your leadership skills and study actionable strategies to achieve districtwide strategic initiatives. Over the course of a year-long program, you’ll gain the tools to support teacher and student growth and succeed as a leader.

Why Education Leaders Need Coaches

The Framework of Effective Leadership Coaching


Leaders work with their executive coach to brainstorm ideas and learn new strategies that they can immediately implement within their district.


Coaches help leaders craft their implementation plan, including the specific student and teacher outcomes they’ll measure in order to test the efficacy of new initiatives.


Using the data they collected, leaders and coaches collaborate to strategically choose their next steps as they continue to work together to improve teacher and student outcomes.

“Having that thought partner who isn't connected to the district gives me the freedom and confidence to explore ideas and be creative. And having someone who can package these ideas and follow up in a way to help with implementation is so important. It's easy to get lost in the weeds.”

Jeff Cook, Principal, Wilson STEM Academy

"I felt that I grew very much as an educator. My coach enabled me to take risks, build on my successes, and reflect on my challenges."

“This coaching experience was tailored to my vision and goals. Amazing support and a portfolio was created to help me track my progress and learning as well as reflect on my practice. The regularly shared meetings were timed perfectly for check-ins.”

"Through participating with BetterLesson Coaching over the past three years, I have grown so much as an educator in ways that I never thought possible. This took teaching to new levels and PD was targeted specifically to areas that I needed, wanted to work on."
