Our Mission

Every student receiving excellent instruction, every day, in every classroom

We embrace a partnership approach in everything we do, and although professional development for and in support of instructional coaches is central to our work, we also provide support for teachers, administrators, and other leaders.

Over 20 years of research, workshops, institutes, publications, and other programming efforts with one goal in mind: to help students experience better learning and better lives.

About Us


Long-Term Partnerships

Implement a systemic approach to coaching

Long-term partnership has the greatest likelihood of turning professional learning into professional practice. It aids in sustainable coaching cultures where coaching becomes a practice everyone in the system embraces. This type of partnership moves schools and districts beyond workshops and courses to promote deeper implementation of research-based instructional coaching. 

Partnership can involve not only workshops but also coaching of coaching leaders, consistent communication support, and embedded work on district- and school-specific concerns.

Extended Support

Your ongoing mission deserves ongoing support

We know that after the excitement of an event day wears off, there can be a bit of a “What’s next?” feeling. Don’t let that valuable training fall to the wayside.

Embedded coaching days provide on-the-spot professional learning with an ICG senior consultant, focused on the needs of each coach as it pertains to the Impact Cycle coaching model.
