Receiving feedback is the first step in professional reflective practice. But professional growth can be even more dramatic when an individual has the opportunity to discuss that feedback confidentially with an experienced coach who can share insights and resources.
The IDEA Chair coaching service provides personalized consultation based on the identified needs of academic department chairs to build leadership skills and maximize talent. Once chairs have completed the IDEA Feedback for Department Chairs instrument, The IDEA Center provides several coaching options to extend and enhance self-reflection and leadership development, through consultation with respected and experienced higher education leaders. The IDEA Department Chair Coaching Service guides chairs through an individualized process of professional discovery and reflection, with flexibility in pricing and structure.
Individual coaching, or coaching within a learning community, can benefit both department chairs and institutions to:
- Strengthen chair leadership
- Improve department culture and effectiveness
- Increase chair satisfaction and enhance his or her professional life
- Focus on individualized improvement strategies
- Reduce costly turnover
