    14. 14. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques Coaching is different than traditional forms of support: Counseling (concerned with the past) Consulting (provides solutions) Training (teaches skills sets) Mentoring (share wisdom/experience). Coaching is a facilitation process to assist teachers to realize and access their own solutions within and learn to trust in their own intuitive brilliance. Coaches may also sometimes act as mentors, but are primarily focused on the coaching process.
    15. 15. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques General coaching principles Assist teachers to clarify their goals. Help create the future, not rehash the past. Assist teachers trust their intuition and to discover their own solutions. Utilize supportive, discovery-based techniques (asking questions and deep listening) . Help teachers develop strategies that lead to success in achieving their goals. Assist teachers to recognize and know their unlimited potential and see that there are many opportunities to avail themselves of to achieve success. Help teachers to create and manage change that achieves desired outcomes toward reaching their potential as teachers.
    16. 16. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques Motivational Interviewing Motivational Interviewing is based on the theory that every human being has an innate desire to grow and change. Even so, change is often difficult. Motivational Interviewing is a directive, teacher-centered exploratory and and discovery method for enhancing intrinsic motivation to grow and create change. The process begins by focusing your questions on the teacher’s values and goals vs. present concerns and challenges or blocks. Learn what is important to them and where they want to be vs. where they are now.
    17. 17. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques Motivational Interviewing The inherent contradictions or inconsistencies between what they consider important and where they want to be vs. where they are now creates ambivalence (duality) and a tendency to feel stuck, until the ambivalence is resolved. Motivational Interviewing explores and resolves ambivalence by eliciting and reinforcing strategies and action plans that move teachers toward the change that promotes success in achieving their goals.

Open-ended questions Affirmations Reflective listening Summaries
    19. 19. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques O.A.R.S.s strategies to stimulate change talk Open-ended questions Often start with words like “tell me about” or “describe” or “how” or “what.” Require more of a response than a simple yes or no, usually go from general to specific, and facilitate dialogue to gather broad descriptive information. Listen attentively and neutrally (without judgment) and demonstrate that you are interested in learning about them.
    20. 20. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques O.A.R.S.s strategies to stimulate change talk Affirmations Acknowledge difficulties and validate experience and feelings.

    21. 21. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques O.A.R.S.s strategies to stimulate change talk Reflective listening Make a demonstrable effort to understand how the teacher sees things. It is essentially hypothesis testing, because what you think a person is saying may not be what they mean. May include repeating, rephrasing, paraphrasing, and sensing feelings.
    22. 22. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques O.A.R.S.s strategies to stimulate change talk Summaries Reinforces what has been said and shows that you have been listening attentively.

    24. 24. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques E.A.R.S.s strategies to maintain change talk Express Empathy Teachers who know they are understood, will share more openly, which allows the coach to better assess where they need support. Teachers who perceive empathy are more open to challenges by the coach.
    25. 25. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques E.A.R.S.s to maintain change talk and develop steps to promote change Amplify Ambivalence Ask questions about the teacher’s goals, hopes and dreams vs. their current situation. Develop discrepancy to amplify ambivalence. (Use O.A.R.S.s open ended questions, affirmations, reflective listening, summaries.) Allow the teacher to make his or her own argument for change. (Use O.A.R.S.s ) Support the teacher to identify steps/actionable strategies and objectives needed to achieve their goals. (Use O.A.R.S.s )
    26. 26. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques E.A.R.S.s strategies to maintain change talk Roll with Resistance Roll with Resistance to avoid argument by saying something like “I get it” or “I understand your point.” It does not mean you agree with the teacher but you may choose to bypass engaging in an argument. If a teacher argues for one position, he/she becomes more committed to it. Resistance is a signal to change strategies. Redirect the teacher toward common ground.
    27. 27. Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques E.A.R.S.s strategies to maintain change talk Support Self Efficacy Review examples of past successes, using reflective listening, summaries, affirmations. Validate frustrations while remaining optimistic about the prospect of change. Remind them that change is not only probable but inevitable. Taking charge of the change gives the teacher the ability to produce the intended outcome.

Orientation Training Webinar for Coaches Coaching Tools and Techniques Motivational Interviewing O.A.R.S. and E.A.R.S.s can be effective tools to promote change talk and help develop steps to change These tools are suggestions and are not required.
