Becoming a Cognitive Coach requires a commitment of your resources: time, mental energy and openness to transforming your identity as a helping person. Is it worth it? You bet! This book contains stories of the learning journeys of practitioners and the impact that Cognitive Coaching has had on staff members individually and collectively, on school culture, students and, of course on themselves. -- Arthur L. Costa, professor emeritus, California State University; co-author of Cognitive Coaching: Developing Self-Directed Leaders and Learners Some synonyms for the word "transform are: change, modify, adjust, vary, amend, revise, rework. This book, true to its name, does all these things for Cognitive Coaching. It takes the basic principles and practices created by Art Costa and Bob Garmston and learned in the Foundation Seminar, and transforms them into applications that range from teacher-student interactions in the classrooms to principal-teacher interactions in a school, to district and state/province level interactions that impact tens of thousands of students and teachers. We learn how using Cognitive Coaching with novice teachers and combining coaching with video feedback with veterans serves a range of generations of teachers. We understand how the maps and tools of Cognitive Coaching influence thinking in a variety of socio-economic settings and how just taking away the need to 'fix' others truly transforms both the coach and the coachee. Gavin Grift's introduction and personal journey of coaching serves as a catalyst for expanding the infinite ways in which this seminal work is transforming. -- Jane Ellison, executive co-director, Thinking Collaborative
