Bowman Publishes Manuscript

Richard Bowman, education, published a manuscript titled "Who is Your Coach?" in The Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues, and Ideas, Vol. 90(2), 48-52, 2017. Authentic coaching expresses a moral commitment to helping others to complete themselves through continuous learning. The essence of effective coaching is viewing and caring about the consequences of another's work. In the everydayness of professional life, educators pursue completing themselves by embracing a mind-set of continuous learning, deliberate practice, openness to developmental feedback, rigorous self-critique, self-reflection, and coaching expertise. In the end, collegial coaching involves two motivated educators who reciprocally choose to assist each other professionally based on affinity and chemistry. Who is your coach?
