Event description
*NEW* Coaching Catapult: An Intensive Day of Learning with Elena Aguilar

About this Event

Level up with an intensive day of learning and feedback with coaching expert, Elena Aguilar.

What to Expect:

This workshop is for anyone who has attended a workshop with us, and is now asking, “What’s next?! How can I keep developing my coaching skills?” What you need is practice. But practice alone doesn't make perfect: we know you need to see what effective transformational coaching looks like, you need guided practice, and you need feedback. And perhaps you could use a new skill or two in your tool box. The Coaching Catapult is an exclusive learning experience that provides all of that and more. In this daylong coaching clinic you will experience quick cycles of learning, application and feedback. Attend and watch your skills spring to the next level! In addition, this highly interactive workshop is designed based on the principles of adult learning and participants experience exceptional facilitation. Those who deliver professional development will leave this workshop having learned as much about facilitating PD as they did about coaching. This workshop is limited to 24 participants.

Workshop Outcomes:

  • Explore how to incorporate the Coaching Lenses in a coaching conversation
  • Observe exemplary transformational coaching and what makes it effective
  • Receive targeted constructive feedback on your coaching practice
  • Develop self-awareness and gain confidence as coaches and leaders
  • Grow in community with other transformational coaches

Activities Include:

  • Observing and deconstructing masterful coaching
  • Learning how to integrate the coaching lenses into a conversation
  • Practicing coaching conversations via mini-role plays and group role plays (yes, be prepared for lots of role plays!).

The Details:

Duration: One day

Who Should Attend: Coaches, administrators, and teacher leaders who have attended a previous Bright Morning workshop and want to keep building their coaching skills.

Prerequisites: You must have attended one of our coaching workshops: Essentials of the Art of Coaching, The Art of Coaching Teams, Coaching for Emotional Resilience, Coaching for Equity, the annual Art of Coaching Conference, or the Resilience Retreat.

What Participants are Saying:

"I've been trained in other coaching methods but this workshop totally blew me away in the clarity and precision with which it was delivered. Thank you, Elena! You are an incredible teacher and facilitator." - Miho, non-profit leader, Pasadena
"From the first 30 minutes, I felt magic, like I was exactly where I was supposed to be. Elena is a MASTER presenter and facilitator. She brings a human touch to the work and situates it very squarely within the systems of oppression we all live within; masterfully weaving into the training the idea that transformational coaching is social justice." - MJ, consultant, Los Angeles
"My expectations were high to begin with, but I felt the general feeling expressed by Elena Aguilar and the work she did with us embodied the principles I use to shape my practice with teachers: Lead with Love; Low Ego, High Impact; and Move at the Speed of Trust." - Sarah, coach, Chicago
