You Might be Thinking...
Can this course help me?
The content of this course was developed in two ways: 1) from my own experience having to figure out how to be an effective coach on my own with limited direction and 2) from training and leading dozens of coaches as they navigated their own unique circumstances. Therefore, this course is less theory and full of more applicable, tangible coaching tips and strategies you can implement right away. This certainly can help you grow your leadership skill set!
Is the course worth the price?
If I am being honest, I should probably charge more for this course. (The printable forms are near $100, let alone the value of content within the numerous modules and bonus sessions). Did you know you get all future updates to the course for FREE? That means, as modules or printable forms are added and the purchase cost increases, you get access to everything without paying a dime. So yes, this course is absolutely worth the price.
What if I don't have time to finish it?
Want some more good news? You have access to this course FOR LIFE! You can start and stop as many times as you wish. You can skip around to the sessions you need the most depending on what you are facing as a teacher leader in the moment. You have plenty of time to finish it, that is if you don't forget it's here!
