About the Book

This is the moment when coaching—instructional coaching, leadership coaching, and team coaching—is more important than ever. Today, education faces its greatest crisis since the Civil Rights Movement. Teachers and school administrators are leaving the profession not for lack of dedication but because they are physically, emotionally, and psychologically exhausted. They face challenges in academic performance, student behavior, and the sheer lack of sufficient hours in the day to serve students in the manner they know is essential. In this important book, Douglas Reeves and his colleagues provide practical advice that enables coaches and their clients to collaborate effectively to achieve organizational success while also ensuring the professional and personal needs of teachers, leaders, and their families. If we learned anything during the pandemic and associated school closures, we know that burnout is not a sustainable strategy. Readers of Fearless Coaching will learn: • The compelling evidence behind Fearless Coaching • Why psychological safety is essential for student and adult learning • The eleven biggest coaching mistakes—and how to avoid them • The essentials of the coach-client relationship • How passion and vision create the energy for successful coaching • The power of focus and how to avoid initiative fatigue • How to know if the coaching process is successful—measuring what matters most
