For leaders looking for intentional professional development in real time!

The goal of 1 on 1 leadership coaching is to help you grow professionally and perform at a level at which you wish to perform, or even at levels that you might not have thought possible. The goal of our coaching is to develop practices and systems that will help you increase capacity (through having more time and changing mindsets) to lead at the next level. 

Our coaching framework starts with using a variety of tools and assessments to identify your natural behavioral style and temperament. A self-discovery of personal leadership style is always a good place to start. This establishes understanding your own gifts and strengths as well as understanding areas of 'weaknesses' especially as it relates to 'dealing' with other people. 

1 on 1 Leadership Coaching Will Help You:

•    Set goals that can be realized
•    Establish personal belief statements 
•    Create shared beliefs with your own leadership team and staff
•    Develop a plan for your vision and/or expectations and how and when to communicate these messages
•    Understand the expectations of your superiors
•    Establish a communication system--with superiors and the people you directly support/manage/lead.
•    Maximize your available time to spend on higher priorities.(priority management vs. time management)


•    Leverage your assistant and other key allies to free you up to perform higher payoff activities
•    Addressing conflicts and having 'fierce conversations' in real time in real situations.
•    Developing a personal accountability system  for implementing baby steps to change old habits, practices, mindsets leading to a more sustainable 'next steps' in professional development.
•    How to hold effective meetings; developing meaningful agendas ;establishing next steps
One on One Coaching is customized to current needs and goals.


I believe that Ashoke’s individual coaching of key personnel within the district has been another strong point (of our partnership). Ashoke has fostered strengths and supplied mentoring to help our leaders work with their staffs to implement key initiatives. His support has help strengthen our leadership team, which will ultimately help students achieve at higher levels.

Ignite can see what I do from a different lens and helps me be a better teacher. Sometimes we get into our routine and we forget what we are doing well and what else we can add.
