The Art of Transformational Coaching (new)

Our newly designed foundational training will allow you to slow down and remember what brought you into this field. You’ll learn in community, share wisdom, and form connections with educators committed to transformation.

Transformational Coaching Starts Here

The Art of Transformational Coaching workshop is the starting point to grow your skills as a Transformational Coach. Based on Elena Aguilar’s book, Arise: The Art of Transformational Coaching (releasing late July 2024), this dynamic learning experience takes you from knowledge building to effective implementation.

This workshop is offered as a two-day in-person workshop, or a virtual blended learning experience. The virtual blended learning option is perfect for those with busy schedules and/or limited ability to travel. The in-person workshop provides expanded opportunities for practice and community building. Both options are highly interactive, allowing you to build skills and synthesize learning quickly.

If you want to see sustained changes in practice, your coaching must go below the surface of addressing behaviors (delivering instruction, analyzing data, etc.). Transformation requires taking a holistic approach and skillfully exploring someone’s beliefs and ways of being. This approach is what defines Transformational Coaching. Transformational Coaches also operate from two truths: that every conversation is an equity conversation, and if people are present, so are their emotions. Transformational Coaching lead conversations that change practice by engaging and working with our emotions.

What Our Community is Saying

"The Art of Coaching Teams workshop went beyond meeting my expectations. It felt so good to be part of a community of learners who wanted to be there and were so open and vulnerable with their contributions to the learning. I liked the role-playing best. It was scary, but it was impactful to practice real potential conversations in a low-stakes way. I really appreciate the learning experience and would take another Bright Morning course in a heartbeat."

Randi R.
What Our Community is Saying

"I feel like each time we have our course, I walk away empowered, inspired, and with more tools to try in my coaching role. I am grateful to have the support from amazing coaches in my class. I think just having lots of time to role play is so beneficial to our practice!"

Annie S.
What Our Community is Saying

"One of the richest impacts has been the web of understanding that’s building around our district as four of the curricular leaders participate in this same membership AND as more and more of our staff members participate in other trainings (Art of Coaching Teams, Coaching for Equity and/or Taste of Coaching for Equity). Having a common frame of reference and range of experiences has changed my learning into a richer, deeper, more powerful community learning experience."

Rebecca L.
What Our Community is Saying

"After 35 years in education, I feel rejuvenated and that I have a new sense of purpose. I will be eternally grateful for Bright Morning. You have been there when I needed you the most and have provided me with immense opportunities for personal and professional growth. I am grateful for Elena and for the dedication of her team to create world-class trainings. I am humbled and blessed to have stretched and grown within the safety of this community."

Andrea M.
What Our Community is Saying

"In my experience, Bright Morning has always provided relevant, applicable, 'just-in-time' tools that have enabled me to build my practice on solid ground. My Bright Morning Membership has been the silver lining of my year. This offer has paid off exponentially. All learning experiences have added a new layer of understanding for me. Now that I’ve experienced the benefits of a year-long membership, I really can’t imagine going back to a 'once-a-year professional development' approach."

My favorite part of being a Bright Morning member is the access to the incredible resources associated with our membership. Bright Morning is already generous with the free tools they provide educators and, as a member, there’s even more access. Another favorite part of my membership is that the incredible trainers actually show us how to use the tools in Elena’s books for full impact. I’ve learned so much about myself and my work and have leveled up my skills as both a coach and trainer. This membership is the gift that keeps giving!
