What are the benefits of Coaching?

NFER: Mentoring and Coaching for Professionals: A study of research evidence – 2009

Research from this study found that when offered as a support mechanism for School Leaders the following benefits were found to be in evidence.

Support the Well-Being of School Leaders​

Coaching supports the psychological well-being and confidence of School Leaders. Headship can be professionally isolating and so School Leaders need opportunities where they can explore the challenges of the role, be listened to and identify solutions that can best support them in their role. Above all, a happy and healthy School Leader leads to a happy and healthy school.

Enhances Leadership Skills​

Coaching deepens leadership knowledge, skills and practice and develops leaders’ problem solving and creativity. As a result, time is used more productively for overcoming complex challenges and school improvement initiatives are able to make greater impact.

Increased Emotional Resilience

Coaching helps to build the emotional resilience of School Leaders by enabling leaders to reflect on challenges they are facing and how to overcome them. Coaching provides a space where Heads can identify new tools and ways of thinking and being, that will better equip them for facing and dealing with crises and struggles when they arise.

Develops Self-Awareness and Self-Management

Coaching enhances leaders’ reflection and thinking skills and allows Heads to become more self-aware and better at self-management. This results in leaders who know how to build on their strengths and address areas for development in themselves. Leaders are then able to transfer this learning to deal more successfully with others.

Improves Communication and Relationship Management

Coaching has been shown to help build Heads’ communication and relationship management skills. After coaching, Heads feel more able to handle difficult conversations which helps to reduce conflict and promotes greater harmony across all relationships.
