"Dr. Elle Allison has once again brought her knowledge, passion, and energy to the coaching world to give us another layer that builds on her previous highly successful works. In a world of ever mounting educational challenges, Dr. Allison's work brings refreshing clarity in understanding transformational leadership coaching. Our school district continues to be totally committed to a coaching model and Dr. Allison provided the direction that started our journey. Her guidance showed us the possibilities of what coaching could do to create systemic, long-term, and sustainable change. And there was no looking back! Leadership coaching fully supports our district's vision, structures meaningful work, brings energy to the work, and builds capacity in our administrative teams, lead teachers, and classroom teachers.
