When it comes to productivity, instructional coaches face unique challenges. One of the biggest issues for coaches is managing their time. Most days school schedules change, and urgent things pop up. This makes it hard to focus and accomplish things on your to-do list.
So, what can you do if you feel like you’re stretched too thin and have no control over your calendar?
On the latest episode of The Coaching Podcast, I have a coaching call with Courtney Staley. We chat about the challenges of trying to do it all and how to make time for what matters most. During the conversation, we discuss modeling with a small group, ideas for collaborative planning sessions, and micro coaching. Listen to learn the steps I recommend for defining your coaching role and how to share it with teachers.
If you're an instructional coach looking for ways to be more productive, this episode is for you. It's packed with tips and tricks to help you manage your time more purposefully.
