Teachers As Coaches



Teachers are responsible for bringing out the best in themselves as well as in the students they teach. To maximise human development and performance, it is important to understand what drives people and what interferes with performance.


Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise his own performance. It is helping people to learn rather than teaching them. Coaching brings out the best in people by equipping them with the tools, knowledge, and opportunities they need to develop themselves and become more effective.


Discover how you can be an effective coach from within by learning coaching tools and using it to enrich your own life, as well as the lives of your students.


This highly interactive and practical workshop focuses on equipping leaders with the skills, knowledge and attitude to be an effective coach by providing support for growth and performance.

  • Practice clear and effective communication with students in group and individual settings.

"We engaged Wendy and Thaddeus to help us organize a company wide seminar on the importance of working through global teams and operating with a global mindset. They helped us organize the content of the seminar, provided coaching to a very diverse multinational group of senior level leaders, and helped us gain alignment in the process. The seminar was a tremendous success. Wendy and Thaddeus were professional, responsive and a lot of fun to work with. Their insight and guidance were invaluable. I would highly recommend their services.."
