General Description

Developing growth mindsets requires more than just praising effort. Coaching psychology offers simple, evidence-based tools that highlight the process. This build inner resources of grit and resilience for the ongoing learning journey in both teachers and students.

1. Exploring mindset
What is a mindset? where does it come from and how does it work? These questions form the foundation of neuroscience where we look at the brain and how we think. Through practical activities we share, laugh and play to explore cognitive behavioural principles that explain the though-feeling loop. By doing so we are better positioned to understand the process of coaching psychology.
2. The stepping stones to GROW
The GROW model of questioning offers a simple scaffold to follow as we move forward in the direction of our learning or professional goals. Given schools are learning environments where we set goals, allow for practice and measure results, the action research process of coaching gives us the tools to better reflect on our decisions, process and actions as a means for increasing accountability, responsibility and intrinsic motivation.
3. Getting SMART with it
Once we have identified the principles of coaching psychology, we put all our skills together in a SMART plan as way to record and discuss feedback about the process of learning. By the end of this workshop, people leave with coaching-approach strategies that are simple, flexible and practical that promote growth mindsets in both staff and students.
