There?s a lot of conversation about how to make schools better.Unfortunately, the nature of those conversations often makes thingsworse. Evocative Coaching: Transforming Schools One Conversationat a Time maps out a way to change that. By taking ateacher-centered, no-fault, strengths-based approach to performanceimprovement, the Evocative Coaching model generates the motivationand movement that enables teachers and schools to achieve desiredoutcomes and enhance quality of life. Viewed as a dynamic dance,the model is choreographed in four steps ? Story, Empathy, Inquiry,Design ? which are each laid out in its own chapter with powerfulillustrative materials and end-of-chapter discussion questions toprompt further reflection.

Bringing together the best research and wisdom in educationalleadership and professional coaching, authors Bob and MeganTschannen-Moran have developed a simple yet profound way offacilitating new conversations in schools through Story Listening,Expressing Empathy, Appreciative Inquiry, and Design Thinking. It?san iterative process that moves beyond old ways of thinking, doing,and being. It?s an inspirational process that reinvigorates thepassion for making schools better, one conversation at a time.

This happens when coaches:

give teachers our full, undivided attention;accept and meet teachers where they are right now, withoutmaking them wrong;ask and trust teachers to take charge of their own learning andgrowth;make sure teachers are talking more than we are;enable teachers to appreciate the positive value of their ownexperiences;harness the strengths teachers have to meet challenges andovercome obstacles;reframe difficulties and challenges as opportunities to learnand grow;invite teachers to discover possibilities and find answers forthemselves;dialogue with teachers regarding their higher purpose forteaching;uncover teachers? natural impulse to engage with colleagues andstudents;assist teachers to draw up a personal blueprint forprofessional mastery;support teachers in brainstorming and trying new ways of doingthings;maintain an upbeat, energetic, and positive attitude at alltimes;collaborate with teachers to design and conduct appropriatelearning experiments;enable teachers to build supportive environments andteams;use humor to lighten the load; andinspire and challenge teachers to go beyond what they would doalone.

Each chapter provides a research-based theory to support thestrategies presented, and includes specific suggestions andanecdotes. The Evocative Coaching model makes coaching enjoyable bygetting people to focus on what they do best, and it inviteslarger, more integral conversations so that people talk about theirwork in the context of other things they care about. Resting onstrong, evidence-based practices, the Evocative Coaching modeloffers educators the help they need to meet the challenges ofincreased accountability and expectations. This model can also beused effectively by coaches and leaders in other organizationalcontexts.

This is a terrific book ! I've been working in the area of instructional coaching for the past several years as both a trainer of coaches and an instructional coach.

This book takes the idea and ideal of coaching to new levels...I am underlining almost every sentence !

As the authors state...

"Adults need follow-up support to continue and advance their learning over time."

This is so powerful and so infrequently implemented with our professional development plans.

Big thumbs up to Evocative Coaching !

With the advent of Common Core all teachers must rethink their teaching practice. Instructional Guides or Instructional Coaches with strong relational skills, effective classroom practice and deep understanding of the demands of the Common Core will be transformation makers in supporting student achievement. This book can support coaches in finding their way with adults in schools.

I am a 3rd year instructional coach and my district provided very little training. After reading this book it confirmed what I was doing right, gave me insight and lots of ideas. Easy read. Great for ADMINISTRATORS too!

Great book! I went to a professional development regarding this book, and bought the book before I even left. I'm really glad I did.

The title is not only captivating for any coach, it is filled with strategies to make the seasoned and new coach most impactful.
Endieyab
This is a book that redefines leadership coaching. It is a strengths-based rather than a deficit model and is empowering
For both the coach and the coaches.
This book promotes an approach to coaching derived from "life coaching" and is not appropriate for the professional development of educators. While it includes some useful elements, it is overly complex, and assumes that becoming an effective teacher is a matter of self-discovery, rather than a profession grounded in research, standards, and rigor that can be learned and practiced. The authors fail to address issues of race and equity. There is much better stuff out there.
