Publisher's Summary

The missing how-to manual for being an effective team leader.
The Art of Coaching Teams is the manual you never received when you signed on to lead a team. Being a great teacher is one thing, but leading a team, or team development, is an entirely different dynamic. Your successes are public, but so are your failures - and there's no specific rubric or curriculum to give you direction. Team development is an art form, and this book is your how-to guide to doing it effectively. You'll learn the administrative tasks that keep your team on track, and you'll gain access to a wealth of downloadable tools that simplify the "getting organized" process. Just as importantly, you'll explore what it means to be the kind of leader that can bring people together to accomplish difficult tasks. You'll find practical suggestions, tools, and clear instructions for the logistics of team development as well as for building trust, developing healthy communication, and managing conflict.
Inside these minutes you'll find concrete guidance on:

Designing agendas, making decisions, establishing effective protocols, and more
Boosting your resilience, understanding and managing your emotions, and meeting your goals
Cultivating your team's emotional intelligence and dealing with cynicism
Utilizing practical tools to create a customized framework for developing highly effective teams

There is no universal formula for building a great team, because every team is different. Different skills, abilities, personalities, and goals make a one-size-fits-all approach ineffective at best. Instead, The Art of Coaching Teams provides a practical framework to help you develop your group as a whole, and keep the team moving toward their common goals.

Very Practical

There are a lot of very useful tools and anecdotes in this guidebook. Some are obvious, some ingenious, but all worth having in one place. I'll definitely have this on my "re-read regularly" list.

All Education Leaders Must Read This

This is hands down one of my favorite books. While reading it, I was able to successfully implement many strategies within this book in working with the teams of my school and district. Once you purchase the book you will also have access to the forms on the website which are very helpful and of great quality. I am a big fan of Elena Aguilar's work and can't wait to see where she goes next as an author. -Instructional Coach
