This website contains ideas that are "in process." Simply put, what you read here may be just some random thoughts, rather than validated and final procedures. Mind you, aren't most ideas "in process?" The bulk of what you'll read here are answers to questions I am emailed or asked during presentations, or summaries of excellent ideas others share with me.

Of course, you can add to this blog by leaving your own comments, too.

Next year's instructional coaching conference

Our plans for next year's coaching conference are already shaping up, and I'm excited to share some of the news.  Michael Fullan, my long-time mentor, has agreed to present on the topic of "What Coaches Need to Know About Change."  Steven Barkley, who was a real hit even though he could barely talk, has agreed to return, and, we hope he'll be in good health.  We also hope that Nancy Love will present on Data Coaching.  Right now we're gathering data on other presenters. I was so pleased with everyone who came to Lawrence this year, and I hope we can do as well next year.  So, I have two questions: (1) who would you like to see at next year's coaching conference, and (2) where would you like it to be.  We want to finalize our location very soon, but we would like to explore all options before we make that decision.  If you've got any ideas, please let me know.  Thanks, Jim

Personally, I'd LOVE it if you'd just keep it close to home. I never see you. Like, ever.

Question 2 Who would we like to see? I don't have a particular speaker in mind, and my topic is muddy...but here goes. Is there someone out there who has strategies on effectively navigating conversations with different teams or individuals? You walk into a team of 8....two are overwhelmed and can't even begin to decide what help is needed, another is dominant and can talk all day about whqt she needs, two more have thrown in the towel though you know you could offer something they need, and then there is the practical one who clearly says I could use this can you be here at __________ and two more never say a word. There isn't time to meet with them all individually. Some wise coach has figured out some "true colorish" approach to sum up the situation and respond strategically. I hope.

These jerseys which are interestingly termed retro basketball jerseys are old school. Here is an example, men football jerseys, Kobe’s jersey at the present time, but the Lakers look 20 years ago. That would be an example of the throwback kind. Sports stars put them on now and again during games

Most of these jerseys state they’re replicas,sports jerseys store, yet in fact aren’t. They are the cheapest ones out there. They’ve screen imprinted lettering, additionally are made of the least expensive fabrics availableNike.
