Leadership Mentoring and Coaching Program


"Teach them the quiet words of kindness, to live beyond themselves. Urge them toward excellence, drive them toward gentleness, pull them deep into yourself, pull them upward toward maturity, but softly like an angel arranging clouds. Let your spirit move through them softly."

Pat Conroy, The Prince of Tides




AISH / AAIE Leadership Mentoring and Coaching Program


An Overview of the AISH and AAIE Mentoring and Coaching Program

Never in our lifetime has school leadership been more in the spotlight. Over the past months you have redefined the tenets of strategic thinking, tactical flexibility, innovation, creative problem-solving and the agility to pivot from one set of plans to the next as new urgencies arrive each day. You’ve done all this with your teams and community in the span of eight months. And certainly there have been days you wondered if you could please anyone in the midst of unrelenting perspectives and opinions across stakeholders.  

Learning more about and enhancing your leadership skills is entirely proactive and liberating too. Knowing you are seeking to continuously improve cements your confidence to take on the challenges that are more daunting than ever before.  

The AISH and AAIE Mentoring and Coaching Program is for any international school leader who wishes to be mentored, who is either fresh to the profession or seasoned with years of experience. Becoming a mentor to a colleague is rich in professional learning too. On both sides of the mentee or mentor equation, the time together increases accountability to your own effectiveness, giving focus to high-performance leadership and defining blind spots in your perspective and skill sets. Seeking a mentor or agreeing to mentor a colleague is to model people development – and it begins with you. Deciding to place yourself in a professional mentoring setting is to model humility as a learner and leader with the resolve to do what it takes to keep getting better. We hope you will get involved and we’ll support you in the process.
