 HPT Leadership Coaching for Middle Leaders 


& 1:1 Support

1. What is HPT Leadership Coaching?

HPT Leadership Coaching creates a professional coaching environment to help School Leaders Level Up their leadership by setting up the learning environment, accountability structures, and support needed to fast track the development of key leadership skills for building sustainable High Performance Schools - places where both Students and Staff Can Flourish!

2. How Does HPT Leadership Coaching Compare to Other School-Based Coaching Programs?

Not all coaching programs are created equal. When implementing a Coaching Program for School Leaders you need to consider your school’s goals and what this means for the program’s Focus (Personal Growth vs. Leadership Performance), Format (One-to-one vs. Group) and Formality  (Ad Hoc vs. Structured).


HPT Leadership Coaching programs are Structured, Performance-Focused Group-Coaching Programs ideally suited for Middle Leaders – from those aspiring leaders without titles who put their hands up to take on extra responsibilities to the Year Level coordinators, Heads of Curriculum, Heads of Departments, Heads of Special Education Services and Deputy Principals.

When compared to traditional school-based coaching programs (typically ad-hoc, one-on-one, personal growth focused), HPT Leadership Coaching Programs (Structured, Performance Focused, Group Based) have a 4x greater impact on Collective Teacher Efficacy (CTE) - the single largest factor that impacts school performance!

3. How Do HPT Leadership Coaching Sessions Work?

Group coaching cohorts of 4 to 5 middle leaders meet for 60-90 minutes on a monthly, bi-monthly, or termly schedule, virtually or face-to-face to support each other on the hot issues and strategic challenges they face in relation to building a sustainable High Performance School culture. Each cohort is led by a HPT Master Coach who ensures that  sessions are  Inclusive, Supportive,  Proactive,  Strategic, and  that 

group members are accountable for their goals.


Group member needs are met using a structured session agenda. Group members arrive highly focused  and ready to tackle their most critical issues by completing their personal Leadership Update Tool pre-session.
