Coachable, but make sure you abide by the ground rules ...

Thank you for taking our School Coaching Readiness Questionnaire.

Your coaching readiness score is between 25 and 35. This score indicates that coaching is most probably a suitable course of action for you at this moment in time. In order to make sure that you get the best out of the process, there are several topics to consider: coaching works best as a process when there is a very clear objective to be achieved: you appear to have set yourself some targets, so spend some time thinking about how important they are to you, and be sure you are aware of what ‘success’ looks like.

Secondly, change is at the heart of the coaching process. Your results indicate that you appreciate progress and learning go hand in hand with change. However, this is still an area that you need to think very clearly about: reflect upon the implications of change since if you continue to do what you are doing now, it is unlikely that you will achieve anything different?

Finally, the coaching relationship is something very special: it is not a problem fixing process, it is very much about the teacher helping others come to terms with their own strengths and areas for development, and then using them to achieve the necessary goals. You appear to be committed to using coaching to build successful relationship between teachers and others, however think through the trust and confidentiality implications.

Your score suggests that coaching is right for you now; although there may be some areas that you need to clarify before you start. We will be in contact with you soon in terms of arranging a short, no commitment exploration of the process, and to answer any questions you might have about how to make progress.
