Does this sound like you?
You’re an experienced coach.
You’ve seen success in your coaching in more than one school, division or subject area.
You know how to meet the needs of diverse coachees.
You collect data & feedback about coaching so you can clearly demonstrate the impact of their coaching.
You’re confident in your coaching and know you can do more, but you feel stuck in your current position.
You’re ready to break out and try for that next level position, but you’re not sure where to start or how to articulate your specific strengths and skills.
Your next steps to grow are:
- A framework or process to help you identify your unique strengths in “leadership language”
- Professional learning highlighting the ways that coaching is leadership, to be able to recognize those within yourself, so you can identify and share stories from coaching experience as they relate to leadership

See how other new coaches develop their coaching conversation skills with a guest post from one of our The Coach graduates
We work with coaches all around the world to develop their coaching skills inside The Coach Certificate & Mentorship Program.
Get a peek inside with this guest post from Cate Jarvis where she reflects on her leadership capacity, as a coach.
“As I see my role as a supportive peer-to-peer position, I have never considered it to be one of leadership. Nor have I ever really wanted a leadership role (or so I have always thought). Over many years of teaching and studying, I have studied what it means to be a leader and how those skills can create a dynamic working environment. However, I have never really looked at myself through that lens. Just the academics of how it works…after all leadership was for “them” and not “me”.“

Hi! I’m Kim!
I’m the host of the #coachbetter podcast and the founder of Eduro Learning.
I was an instructional coach in international schools for over 15 years and I firmly believe that coaches are the catlyst for lasting change inside schools.
As a coach, you have a powerful middle leadership position where you can both inspire new ways of teaching and learning and be the support on the ground to make it happen.
For the last 5 years, I’ve been supporting coaches in international, public and private schools around the world in The Coach Certificate and Mentorship Program, as well as in private 1:1 coaching packages.
My clients have:
- developed their unique voices as a coach so that they’re having consistent, effective, and deep coaching conversations;
- successfully advocated for a coaching position – turning a temporary role into a full time salaried job;
- created intentional and thriving coaching programs where teachers are excited about being coached;
- become productive and focused in their demanding coaching job, so they actually get things done and feel accomplished; and
- navigated the murky waters of middle level leadership to make a bigger impact in their school setting.
What I know from my years of being a coach, and working with coaches, is…
YOU have the potential to make a bigger impact in your school setting when you dive deep into your coaching skills.
Are you ready?
