Session 1: Making an Impact: Coaching as a Vehicle to Influence Change

Presented by: Jenny Novak, NCSM Professional Learning Director


Attention BOLD mathematics leaders, teacher leaders and coaches!  Bold mathematics leadership and coaching is recognized as one of the most powerful ways to ensure equity, build teacher capacity and increase student learning outcomes.  

In this session, we will collectively explore how to build a culture for coaching, engage in active listening and coaching experiences, and develop impactful strategies for challenging coaching situations.  Leaders and coaches will examine the following essential questions:

  • Imagine: How can I leverage coaching as a vehicle to influence change?
  • Inspire: How can I build and enhance my coaching skills to inspire and enhance my coaching relationships? 
  • Influence: How can I recognize and address unproductive beliefs in coaching conversations to influence change? 
  • Impact: How can I apply a variety of coaching moves to lead impactful conversations?

If you are a new or experienced coach, teacher leader, or supervisor this pre-conference session will help you to understand the foundational elements of being a BOLD mathematics leader through the NCSM Essential Actions framework and coaching essential actions.

You won’t want to miss this great afternoon of learning and networking with other math leaders!
