Leadership Coaching

The Leadership Programs of the GSE train and support a cadre of experienced school leaders as leadership coaches. All coaches use the Coaching for Social Justice and Equity model developed by UC Berkeley PLI. In addition to coaching provided during preparation and induction, we provide individualized coaching support for practicing leaders throughout the SF Bay Area at two levels:

Alumni Coaching is for graduates of PLI and LSP who express interest in receiving continued individual coaching support. Specific situations when coaching has been identified as particularly helpful include transition to a new position, change in leadership team, and additional time for supported growth. This short term service is offered up to 40 hours a year at a reduced rate.

Coaching Initiative is for educational leaders who would like intensive support (40-80+ hours) and development that includes both individual coaching support and attendance at relevant and targeted district meetings or professional development that supports progress toward the targeted goals. Typical clients are experienced principals who have specific areas of needed growth or novice principals who have a strong foundation and need support putting theory into practice.
