Leadership Coaching

Heads of small schools have a herculean task in managing all aspects of their school, community and board. With fewer resources (both financial and human), they still need to accomplish the same tasks as larger schools.

Many times, smaller schools are led by leaders in their first headship position.

These leaders need support! 


Engaging in a coaching/mentorship relationship with someone who has been the leader of a small school and who can listen, reflect, and support, provides small school leaders with a valuable opportunity to process, learn, and grow.

Benefits of Leadership Coaching:
Increased self-awareness
Increased confidence
Increased skills
Increased motivation
Increased efficacy


“Brooke's coaching has provided me with the tools (and, dare I say the permission?!), to dig deep inside of myself and see that I really do have the answers. I have learned to trust my instinct, be comfortable with discomfort, and grow!”

Liz D., Head of School, GreenMount School

“In a very short period of time, Dr. Carroll gained my trust and admiration. She is an effective and empathetic communicator. I highly recommend her not only as a leadership and small school consultant but as a competent and respectful voice on hiring diverse leaders.”

Stephanie F., Head of School, Wye River Upper School
