One of the most important factors shaping a coach’s effectiveness is the support or lack of support provided by the coach’s principals. When principals support coaches, the coaches usually have a very significant impact on teaching and learning. When principals don’t support coaches, the coaches usually struggle to have any impact at all.  In today’s video, I explain what principals need to do to support coaches, and why it is important.

Also, if you’re interested, ICG offers workshops that go into much more detail about what principals should do to support coaches.  You can read about that workshop and others on our new website at this link:  ICG Workshops
