Leadership Coaching

Educational Leadership

Around the globe, leaders face a myriad of challenges on a daily basis. Coupled with the enormous pressure from being responsible for so much dependent on others performance.

Distributed leadership practices, consultative decision processes, collaborative planning, workforce planning, budgeting... the list goes on. However, despite these responsibilities all being ‘bread and butter’ to leaders they can often go awry, or at times may just need rethinking.

The real challenge in Leadership is to develop proactive processes and structures that prepare for and manage challenges, rather than reacting to the unexpected ‘fires’ each time.

If you wish to enhance your professional effectiveness, on-the-job performance and gain support for managing workplace issues, our Leadership Coaching will provide you with assistance through a collaborative approach. Your coaching experience will be customised to meet your needs and targeted to deliver a rewarding and sustainable way forward in your leadership development.

 With more than 30 combined years working in senior education leadership positions in Australia and UK, our Leadership Coaching team will support you to achieve your goals. Contact Dianne Rowe Coaching for further information.

"A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the quality of his actions and the integrity of his intent."  
- Douglas MacArthur

Using strategic planning to lead change

Our Leadership Coaching will help you consider current structures, processes, and practices that support the plan’s implementation and review.

Many clients begin with 4 sessions up to 60 minutes each, with more significant life developments requiring a longer coaching commitment. All coaching partnerships are virtual using Skype or Zoom, which has huge benefits and allows us to work across multiple time-zones and removes any travel time or expense.
