    My thoughts from the Podcast:

    Read the “Coaching Habit”: teachers are turned off when they are told advice because it gets their fight or flight going. Come at the discussion from a curiosity standpoint. Get the challenge to the forefront of the teacher/administrator’s mind ( the “massage”) and try to get them to have the same epiphany you had on the topic.

    Also, meet with the teacher or administrator and create a plan with easy steps to implement the changes you hope to make. Think about small changes. For stakeholders, you want to think about how to make changes without adding too much chaos to the plate and address factors like cost. Think about the biggest bang for the buck…snowball the attack plan.
