We describe coaching as a way of reconnecting with one's passion, motivation, and energy.
One of the best ways to promote C4E is to describe it as an opportunity for educators to experience coaching:
It's an opportunity to find out what coaching is about, for real.
It's an opportunity to learn more about themselves, to grow.
It's an opportunity to discover what coaching can give, their students, and colleagues.
When you are coached, you also learn how to coach because you are an active partner in the coaching process.
Some educators may want to find out about coaching because they feel in need of some 'help'. That's a word to take note of.
It can be misleading to describe coaching as a source of help since it puts the educator in a weak position. There is a risk of entering the Drama Triangle.
We prefer to discuss working with self-discovery, increased awareness, finding courage, greater clarity, and other such terms.
