ISEEN offers coaching for Experiential Educators, both for individuals, groups, and for teams.

Why is Coaching useful for Experiential Educators?

Coaching experiential educators, leaders and change-makers in independent schools is important for making time to reflect upon our lives, our work and our wellbeing to take care of ourselves and those around us.


 1:1 Coaching

 
A coach works 1 on 1 with an educator over a given period of time to explore realities, identify obstacles and take steps to move forward.
 

 

A group of people exploring an issue, working on their individual goals, and gaining support from the group through sharing and dialogue.


 

A team who works together on a project and/or may want to create a vision, action plan or program; address team dynamics and deal with conflict or improve ways of working together.
