What School and District Leaders Are Saying about Their Executive Coaching Experiences
Participants were asked (Spring 2021), Finish this statement: My biggest take away from my Executive Coaching experience is….
I really am more focused on who I am and who I want to be. I am aware of areas of strength and weakness and have specific action goals to help me become the leader I want to be..
I have grown so much through this experience. It has pushed me to be a better version of myself as well as lead me to discover my true vision for my future.
My biggest take away from Executive Coaching has been in order to lead others effectively I have to take care of myself. It was truly powerful to embrace the fact of how important self-care is and that I can’t be the best version of me if I am not at my best physically, spiritually and emotionally.
The coaching experience allowed me to see myself in a different light. My perception of myself and my leadership was different from the perception of my staff. I gained more confidence professionally and personally. I really take time to say positive things about me to me.
Through this work, I have changed my life to be the best version of my authentic self. I have learned that I deserve to take care of myself and that this is not a selfish act, but one that must happen to best show up for others. I have been more intentional in shutting off work for the day to focus on family and through this I have worked to have more meaningful time with my husband, daughter, and extended family members. My 10 year old daughter said it all when one day she started crying at the table stating that this program had truly changed me, made me a better person, and that she was so proud of me.
Honestly too many to list. If I chose one to highlight I would have to say the power of self-awareness and positive self-talk as it impacts the subconscious mind and your daily actions. That tip of the iceberg impacts all other areas learned. I have absolutely loved every minute of this experience.
My best takeaway from my Executive Coaching Experience is the ability to self- reflect using various tools. I actually informed my coach this morning that this experience has helped me be more self-aware. I evaluate my leadership behaviors more, whether good or bad and I assess how others receive my leadership style. Overall, I have positive relationships with my colleagues, however, my biggest critic is myself, so I have also learned and put into practice, not being so hard on myself.
