Coach to Coach Workshop


Exciting news! I have enjoyed presenting about coaching around the country for the past few years and I’m thrilled to bring it home. On the 14th and 15th of August, 2014 we will be hosting the Coach to Coach Workshop in our hometown of Olympia, Washington for teacher leaders, first-year coaches, experienced coaches and administrators interested in growing their coaching skills and programs.

The cost of the workshop is $285 per person for two days at the Doubletree by Hilton on Olympia’s Percival Landing. Our workshop is in the hotel’s conference rooms and walking distance from many food and fun options. We will post more information about what there is to do and see in Olympia as we approach registration!

  1. Are your sessions based on a book you’ve written? I’d love to come but am not available at that time.

    • Karen, I will definitely be referring to my book, Side by Side, but most of the sessions are based on what coaches have asked about and said is difficult about this work. I design my training to be the kind of workshop I’d want to attend to better my own practice–and have a lot of fun.
