Leadership Coaching


“Are you looking for direction in your career?” Talk to the expert coaches at LSC Education.

We offer personalised preparation for those entering or working in school leadership internationally. At LSC Education we take as much care with our candidates as we do with our client schools. This is why we offer the LSC Education Careers Coaching Service, a premium and confidential personalised career coaching service which focuses on personal coaching.

It is individually designed to respond to the specific needs and circumstances of each candidate and is conducted on a one-to-one basis. We want to help educational leaders to take their next step in international school leadership, and to do so with confidence.

This bespoke, confidential programme is built around action-planning and personal coaching, and includes CV reviews, interview practice and targeted feedback. Each programme is built around individual's needs and could be as short as 2-3 contact hours, or more extended support over a period of months.

Why should you consider executive coaching?

Coaching offers you a highly confidential, challenging and experienced space where you can explore how to develop your skills as a leader. A great coach will listen to you with curiosity and objectivity, be honest and straightforward in asking you questions, and will help you find clarity about your objectives. They will challenge you to help ensure that you have real learning, help you to overcome obstacles, making empowering requests for action and hold you accountable for this action.  In the coaching relationship, the coach plays the role of a facilitator of change, but it is your responsibility to enact or bring about the change.

Coaching is an investment in your present and future career as a school leader.
