Coach Connections

Coach Connections is a 1.5-hour synchronous, interactive coach collaboration and professional development held in the fall and spring.   CTI reflective coaches will have an opportunity to engage in building a network of support with their peers.  Please have available your device, Coach Compass, uploaded coaching conversation video in GoReact, and have access to your candidate’s ILP.  Following the synchronous session will be asynchronous activities that coaches will complete.
