The candidate/coach relationship is the heart of CTI’s Induction Program. Reflective coaches engage in training and development to ensure strong, confidential relationships to support candidate’s growth. Reflective coaches strengthen the candidate’s professional practice and contribute to retention in the teaching profession.
Who should attend?
Coach Professional Learning is a program expectation to ensure highest quality of coaches for our candidates.
Our objectives today are designed to support the growth and enhancement of your coaching skills. We will start with program updates, explore ways to support your candidate’s just-in-time needs, focus on sharpening listening and questioning skills, reflect with your colleagues on your recorded coaching conversation, and provide networking opportunities in breakout rooms.
Below you will find the links to preview the resources we will be covering during our session:
Please be prepared to share a resource (Listening, Questioning, or Providing Feedback) that you explored after receiving your Coach Self-Assessment results.

After your Fall Coach Connections attendance has been posted in CTI Navigate, under My Training, you will have access to “Begin” Asynchronous Activities. Please complete these application activities prior to winter break. If you are unable to locate it, please contact me and I am more than happy to walk you through it.
There are three activities that you will apply from the synchronous session.
