I have never encountered something that in two days has the power to change both personally and professionally how you operate, live your life, the results you get and the impact it has on you and others. You will develop your team and you'll bring balance to your life.
Day 3 is a chance for you to take a breath, revisit what you're doing and how you're doing it. You spend time with your secretary to operationalize the most important elements of the Breakthrough Coach Fundamentals™. There is ample opportunity to talk with colleagues, share winning strategies and work through the challenges we all face.
It’s absolutely been life changing. I'm home for family. I'm a better administrator. I finally can talk about vision, start implementing things and work on the culture of the building. It's absolutely related to The Breakthrough Coach because I'm out in the classroom three days a week. That is a huge turnaround. It's almost incomprehensible.
Implementing the Breakthrough Coach successfully in a district means continuous involvement and coaching. Day 1 and Day 2 sets the practices in motion. Day 3 reveals where we all are on the “continuum” of implementation. It’s essential. It’s also important to remember the Breakthrough Coach is ongoing professional growth that not only improves your professional life, it improves your personal life.
For the first time ever all my teacher evaluations are done two weeks early and it's because of the Breakthrough Coach. It's because I leveraged my secretary in scheduling all the conferences I needed to do with individual teachers about their evaluations. It saved me tons of time.
It’s a lifeline for administrators who feel like they’re drowning. They don’t have to stay at work till 9 o’clock and come in at 6:00 am anymore. And, it’s not just administrators who benefit from this, the kids benefit.
Day 3 is about application, group learning and coaching to propel you forward. It’s critical for anyone who wants to master The Breakthrough Coach Fundamentals™.
The Breakthrough Coach has enabled me to engage in activities designed to empower everyone in the educational community to reach their full potential. I have the time, the energy and the intentional focus to empower every stakeholder to focus on the learner.
We're hitting a perfect storm right now – Common Core, a new assessment system and a new teacher evaluation system – but because of the structure of the Breakthrough principles and the support I get from my Coach, we're weathering the storm. I honestly believe we are on the track to a significant breakthrough in student performance because of how we're managing all these things.
If you're looking to do capacity-building within your building, to distribute leadership responsibility, The Breakthrough Coach is a way to train and create a relationship with your secretary. Doing that allows you to do the educational leadership things the state is evaluating you on as a school leader.
