In this episode I have packed up my microphone, left Auckland, New Zealand and headed across to Queensland in Australia to chat with Janice Lenarduzzi, Deputy Principal at MacGregor State School. Janice shares with us the successes and challenges of introducing a coaching culture in a large state school of over 50 staff and 1300 pupils. Starting out with only two coaches Janice invests time and energy in unpacking what coaching is, succeeds in convincing 50% of the staff to take a risk and sign up and then shares with us the impact coaching has on both teaching practice and pupil outcomes. This story is well worth a listen.
