Dr. Stiles offers individual, team and group coaching and consulting services to education leaders. In every program, the work brings awareness, clarity, action and accountability to participants.

Who Benefits from Coaching for Education Leadership

Dr. Stiles coaches superintendents and central office administrators through the Georgia School Superintendents Association (GSSA) Coaching program and other individuals through Turning Points. Individuals in education seeking coaching are typically strong performers who desire an outside resource to act as a sounding board as they navigate interpersonal issues and seek additional development to reach new goals. Clients include superintendents, district office and building-level leaders.

Districts or buildings with many new to their positions, newly formed teams, groups forging new communication alliances, and groups interested in strengthening their effectiveness can all benefit from targeted workshops or group facilitation.

Dr. Stiles also works with central office teams, building-level teams, and combinations of the two (district leadership) to enhance working relationships, improve communication and leverage talents. After gaining a clear understanding of project goals, recommendations are made regarding appropriate career and leadership assessments, workshops, group facilitation and coaching. Dr. Stiles works closely with each entity to understand and pinpoint project objectives and customizes each project to meet those objectives.

How Coaching for Educators and Administration Works

Coaching through Turning Points often incorporates information from the Highlands Ability Battery to identify specific talents that can be leveraged. Other assessments may also be suggested. All coaching is action and results oriented. Meetings take place face-to-face and/or on the phone. Payment arrangements can be made through school systems or individuals.

Contact Dr. Stiles with a brief overview of what you hope to achieve during the engagement. She will gather information to understand and pinpoint project objectives and will recommend appropriate assessments, workshops, group facilitation and/or coaching.

You will receive a customized, concise proposal incorporating engagement scope and objectives, number of participants, length of program/workshop, engagement steps and dates and estimated cost. Payment arrangements are agreed upon at that time.
