EDUC 240. Coaching as Leading and Leading as Coaching

Credits: 3

Everyone agrees that our best coaches are some of our best leaders. But why? What do they do differently from leaders in other fields, and why are they so effective? In this course, we will study the best coaches, their philosophies, and why they work so well, through a half-dozen books and a substantial course pack. We will study what theories, policies, and practices are transferrable to the "real world," and which are not. We will explore what works best (and what doesn't), through a few guest lectures, group activities, and two papers.
