Your feedback helps me get better, so thanks to all of you who share!
Speaking of feedback, my longtime friend, Nat Ellis, responded to Monday’s post on coaching:
I would enjoy coaching teachers. You need to listen to their teaching style and develop plans and ideas that will help them grow. n athletics, we tell athletes the best way to do a specific skill.
This is a powerful insight! There are some things for which there is one way. There are many things for which there are multiple ways. How does the nature of the task influence how we coach?
There are lots of coaching models, but I will go with the one I know best – mine, which is heavily influenced by the work of Elena Aguilar.

These different stances work in different situations. If you want to learn more about a particular stance, let me know.
Do good and be well,
