Amplify Your Impact: Coaching Collaborative Teams in PLCs at Work™

Rebecca DuFour, Thomas Many, Susan Sparks-Many, Michael J. Maffoni, Tesha Ferriby Thomas

While much evidence has supported the significant impact
professional learning communities (PLCs), collaboration and coaching each have
on learning, few schools and districts have combined these concepts to shift
the focus of their coaching from individual teachers to collaborative teams. But
Amplify Your Impact: Coaching Collaborative
Teams in PLCs at Work™ merges these three constructive concepts and presents
F–12 coaches, administrators and teacher leaders with a framework that enhances
collaborative efforts in PLCs and represents the next generation of best
practices in teaching and coaching. Thomas W. Many, Michael J. Maffoni, Susan
K. Sparks and Tesha Ferriby Thomas show how coaching teams collaboratively improves
the productivity of traditional best practices in coaching, which address
teachers individually. Using the latest research on coaching and collaboration,
the authors present feasible steps leaders can take to adopt collaborative
coaching methods, fortify their teacher teams and PLCs, and enhance teaching
and learning.

Readers will:


gain anecdotal insights from teachers and empirical evidence from schools that confirm how coaching and refining collaborative teams can strengthen PLCs

use the pathways for coaching collaborative teams to reflect on the effectiveness of their instructional practices

learn how to develop and use a strategy implementation guide to map out team success

consider how coaches can operate as consultants, collaborators and coaches of reflective thinking

analyse coaching scenarios that illustrate how to turn ineffective team meetings into positively collaborative ones.

Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School

by John Medina

An updated and expanded edition of the international bestseller

Most of us have no idea what’s really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details that every business leader, parent, and teacher should know — for instance, that physical activity helps to get your brain working at its best.

How do we learn? What do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multitasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget — and so important to repeat new information?

In Brain Rules, Dr John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in brain science, and how it can influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule — what scientists know for sure about how our brains work — and offers transformative ideas for our daily lives.

Building Leadership Development Programmes: Zero-Cost to High-Investment Programmes that Work

by Nigel Paine

Most leadership development runs on rails: courses are organized with standard content usually delivered by companies set up expressly for that purpose. Most leadership programmes fail when judged on whether they achieve lasting impact and behaviour change because what is covered is often forgotten after the programme ends. Building Leadership Development Programmes is designed to show how leadership development should work. It challenges the widely accepted notion that leadership development cannot be measured and it exemplifies how to design programmes that are in line with organizational needs and deliver lasting and measurable impact.

Building Leadership Development Programmes is structured around detailed case studies from around the world that offer unique insights into the process of building effective leadership development, looking at a range of approaches from almost zero cost options to high end investment that actually works. It helps readers think through what it is that they are actually trying to achieve, offering processes to work through to establish what is necessary for their organization and take a longer view than looking for quick fixes.

It features case studies including Crotonville Leadership Centre who have worked with GE, McKinsey and the Red Cross, and interviews with world authorities on leadership and talent development. Detailed guidance will help identify the right measures to ensure impact, and to adopt the right methodologies, including looking at leadership coaching, mentoring, social learning and action learning, blowing apart the idea that expensive training courses are always required.
