Why Power Up!?

In working with our partners across the country through challenging times in education, we’ve identified an increasing need for focused team building and support for administrative teams. Teams, including central office cabinets, departments, and principal/assistant teams, have experienced lots of turnover and high levels of stress.

Enroll in Power Up! for your students. Enroll for your team. Enroll for you.

What additional coaching support is available?

The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.  The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity, and leadership.

We all have goals we want to reach; challenges we are striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck.  Partnering with a coach can change your trajectory, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.

Sessions are designed and driven around the topics and needs of the individual administrator and/or team.  Coaching provides an excellent opportunity to build the leader’s capacity, thinking, and knowledge.

Additional coaching support includes ten 60-minute sessions for a total of 10 hours over a single academic year, beginning anytime after the commencement of the Power Up! program.
