Learn the “Why” of Coaching at NASJE’s Annual Conference

Performance coaching, executive coaching, skills coaching, life coaching. What do courts need in the realm of coaching, and why should judicial educators consider adding coaching to their courts’ repertoire of training? In their session, “A Coach Approach: Sustainable Change for Judicial Branch Leadership,” NASJE members Leslie Gross and Nancy Smith will make the case for implementing a coach approach for court leaders involved in personnel management and other leadership arenas. Smith and Gross are trainers, coaches, and owners of Sustainable Change Coaching, which they founded this year in the hopes of helping court leaders become better people managers and leaders.
