Coaching is recognized as a key learning strategy for professional development as well as overall program implementation. This institute will provide wraparound coaches and supervisors with information to assemble the coaching puzzle—in other words, how to integrate the best skills, theories and abilities of coaching into a solid evidence-based supervision strategy. Coaching provides an avenue for coaches and supervisors to work holistically with their staff, focusing on their learning potential and areas for growth.
