In this episode we’re highlighting some great moments from upcoming #coachbetter conversations to give you a sneak peek into our second “official” season of #coachbetter. We’ll take you on a quick tour of the guests and the episodes so you have some context for the conversations.

Not every episode is included here, but you’ll get an overview of our two key themes for the semester: how coaching can support social justice work in our school communities and how coaching and leadership intersect in many different ways.
