Our education coaching philosophy for School and Team leaders is informed by the BASIC coaching model, developed by Andy Buck, 2020:
A one-to-one conversation that focuses on the enhancement of learning through increasing self-awareness and a sense of personal responsibility, where the coach facilitates the self-directed learning of the coachee, through questioning, active listening, appropriate challenge and, when needed, practical guidance in a supportive and encouraging environment that leaves the coachee feeling clearer and more optimistic about the future’.

…while our Team Coaching method is informed by Peter Hawkins, 2014:
Enabling a team to function at more than a sum of its parts, by clarifying its mission and improving its external and internal relationships. It is different therefore from coaching team leaders on how to lead their teams, or coaching individuals in a group setting’.
