Better Conversations


All teachers, schools, and classrooms face their own unique challenges. Based on 20 years of ICG research and The Impact Cycle (2017) by Jim Knight, this workshop provides a framework for any coaching scenario. Once understood, this versatile framework is easy to implement, shows immediate signs of success, and creates a virtuous cycle for educators and students. In this workshop, coaches will learn the importance of a partnership approach to coaching and how to leverage this powerful tool to develop and set goals that can align administrators and teachers on a single focus to grow student achievement.

The Impact Cycle


Participate in professional development that clarifies what coaches do and how they can be supported. This workshop provides a deep understanding of how administrators and instructional coaches can collaborate to ensure that coaches have an unmistakably positive impact on teachers’ teaching and students’ learning.
