Executive Coaching

Want to take charge of your career and become a leader you know you can be? Our Executive Coaching program can help. With personalized coaching and career development tools, educators in all roles will gain the skills and confidence to lead… and succeed. 

A partnership between the New York Association for Women in Administration (NYSAWA), Capital Region BOCES, and executive coaching specialists from Tenshey, Inc., the Executive Coaching program is designed to address the unique challenges and experiences faced by women and others traditionally underrepresented in leadership positions, providing them personalized support and guidance to reach their full potential. 

The program offers educators at all levels and in every role the opportunity to strengthen their professional skills, build a supportive network with peers, and set clear goals for becoming strong, inspiring, and effective leaders. 

Path to leadership success

Participants in the Executive Coaching program work closely with Tenshey’s professional coaching team to develop and implement strategies that can radically shift their mindsets and habits, impacting for the better how they work, lead, and succeed.  

Aspiring and current educational leaders can choose from two different tracks: Sprint, which is designed to help develop essential skills for these roles, and Transform, designed to help those already in executive roles boost their careers through coaching and assessments.
