Support on Your Terms
The first years of Headship are fraught with challenges.
You aren’t sure where to focus your efforts.
You need to get the Board, faculty, and staff on your side.
You want to deliver your mission with excellence.
You don’t want to look uninformed or unsure.
The School Head has no in-school colleagues.
It’s stressful to make big, strategic decisions.
What if you had an ISM Consultant guiding you every step
of the way in your Headship?
You don’t have to figure out how to be a new Head on your own.
ISM’s New School Head Coaching allows you to work one-on-one with an ISM Consultant for one calendar year.
This service, designed for Heads within the first three years of their headship, is custom-designed for your specific
needs to help you deliver your school’s mission with excellence.
Stability Marker Assessment Survey
This service begins with the ISM team administering the following surveys in your school community: Stability Marker Assessment Survey, and the Parent Survey
These surveys provide deep insight into what’s working at your school and what requires attention. Once the surveys are completed by our Survey Team, the Consultant creates:
- An Executive Summary of the survey findings, including:
- your school’s Stability Marker score; and
- your net promoter score;
- the nature of your faculty culture;
- levels of student enthusiasm and satisfaction; and
- the predictability and support experienced by your faculty and students.
- An 18-month Roadmap for your Headship
These documents serve as the foundation of our New School Head Coaching experience.
With your Executive Summary and Roadmap complete, you’ll work with the Consultant for a calendar year. You will:
- Address challenges and concerns uncovered in the surveys
- Implement recommended tactics to achieve your Roadmap goals
- Strengthen your confidence as you move through your early years of Headship
Support on Your Terms
This service is designed to help you achieve your unique goals based on what your community needs from you. No two coaching services will look alike.
Since this service is based on your needs, you can select from two tiers of support—including one or two conference calls with the Consultant each month, according to your selection.
