Leadership Coach Training Programs

Overview

With induction coaching now a requirement for earning the Clear Administrative Services Credential, leadership coaches are needed now. Not only critical to the process of developing new leaders, training as a coach provides valuable skills and experience for both your current position and future career advancement.

What is leadership coaching?

Leadership coaching is a form of individualized, job-embedded professional development evoking greatness in leaders. It’s about shifting the focus of a problem-solving, “fix it,” mentality to one of identifying strengths, exploring possibilities and designing a new way of being and doing.

Leadership coaching is about promoting a growth-fostering relationship between the coach and the leader to bring about transformational change.

ACSA Leadership Coaching emphasizes the application of adult learning, the importance of building trust and rapport, the value of being a good listener and the need to ask questions and provide feedback that promotes reflection and growth in new and experienced educational leaders.

The California Network of School Leadership Coaches (CNET) is geared toward both Certification of California Leadership Coaches and to the continuous development of coaching skills for leadership coaches not seeking certification. CNET is open to all leadership coaches who have previously completed ACSA Leadership Coaching (ALC). It is required for all individuals coaching ACSA Clear Administrative Credential Program (CACP) candidates, and for annual certification in all ACSA Affiliated Local Programs. All current and new coaches working toward their Certification as a Leadership Coach must enroll annually.
