As a coach, of coaches and teacher leaders, the perception is that you have all the answers and mastered all the content. However, I believe there is always room to grow, value in collaboration and the importance of reflection. Thankfully, I found Kathy, who helped me increase my coaching skillset. Our time together allowed me to process and reflect with someone who is 100% removed from my work environment, yet completely engaged in the work and focused on me as a client. Coaches often spend a majority of their time supporting others, Kathy reminded me of the value of personal professional investing, which in turn allows professionals to be more effective.
