Educate4hope was founded by our fundamental desire and beliefs that effective leadership coaching is the singular most effective strategy that positively influences and supports efforts of building and sustaining a legacy of academic achievement and positive school culture. The reality is, in many of our nation’s school districts, leaders are not supported and professionally developed in a manner that leverages skills sets nor is it done in a collaborative, trusting fashion. Whether it is a capacity, skill set, political, or a resource issue – it just doesn’t happen in some systems. As a result, our systems, schools and students continue to be impacted by losing potentially GREAT people and leaders.
We Stand For Something... You!
So You Don't Fall For Everything!
We understand Urban Educators better than anyone and consequently, empathize with the sense of urgency in quickly realizing positive, sustainable outcomes and the challenges of working in very complex environments. Fortunately, we have learned from our challenges and been blessed with awesome experiences and professional development and we want to GIVE BACK. Thus, we have a very purposeful and intentional approach to our work and are committed to the following:
Creating a psychologically safe relationship.
This relationship is of paramount importance. Without the freedom and security to share thoughts in a safe environment, educators tend to feel stifled and isolated. This leads to less productivity and inauthentic leadership that is not sustainable in an organization. We are able to develop this relationship by reputation, integrity, credibility, previous relationships and purposeful conversations. We will NEVER be untruthful and ALWAYS be transparent with our experiences.
Creating a value-added, feedback rich environment
To impact you and your entire organization. All educators want to improve and receive feedback, especially as it relates to their progress on their goals and outcomes. We have options to meet you at your readiness level. We meet you where you are and where you want to go. Think you want to be an administrator? We will help prepare you for an interview, review your resume, conduct a mock interview, and connect you with resources. Already an administrator but need support in a different fashion to meet your needs? We have courses, individualized coaching plans and resources to connect you and help you find YOUR success. Not success by anyone else’s standards – YOU call the shots! What good is success if it’s not your success?
Our commitment to our relationships with our partners combined with a value-added, feedback rich environment allows us to tie in the work of leveraging resources and create a prescriptive, transformative approach aligned specifically to realize you, your school or your school system’s desired vision and mission in a sustainable and productive fashion.
