This is a Behind the Designs episode in which Elena pulls back the curtain to provide expert advice on holding spaces for transformation. Today she’s sharing the strategy you need for coaching clients who are experiencing strong emotions.
This week we are replaying an earlier coaching tools episode where Elena provides an overview of the ACE framework, one of the core strategies for coaching resilience.
The ACE framework is one that has been utilized in many of the coaching conversations episodes, including one we will be replaying next week: Virtual Reality: Confronting Self Doubt.
On today’s episode Elena coaches an instructional coach who works at a school that is the top performing high school in the state where despite their considerable success, students of color are being underserved. While this reality is known and discussed at the district and school-wide level, disparities are not being addressed at the individual classroom level. Elena’s coachee wants to change that and asked to be coached to figure out what is holding her back and how to consistently coach with an equity lens. Together the two discuss 7 foundational steps to take to begin building her foundation for coaching for equity.
In this Coaches’ Corner episode Elena shows up as your coach and expertly guides you through some exercises and prompts to consider if you are looking to coach for equity.
