Press Release, September 16, 2002
The Coaching Clinic has announced that the Peel District School Board
has chosen The Online Coaching Clinic to deliver e-coaching to its professional
and administrative staff. The e-coaching will be used to support Work
Life Balance and Professional Development initiatives.
Toronto, Monday, September 16, 2002
The Online Coaching Clinic [TOCC] will be used by the Peel District School
Board [PDSB] as the third leg of a blended learning program aimed at increasing
the Work Life Harmony of Principals and Vice-Principals in the almost
200 schools in the Peel District School Board. They will have access to
all of TOCC's e-coaching modules.
The entire wellness initiative, called Take One Step, Wellness at Work,
includes workshops called Do it ON Purpose and weekly e-newsletter called
Balance Bites. The Balance Bites complement the workshop learning and
direct readers to TOCC which increases usage. PDSB's Work Life Harmony
initiative which is entering it's second year, aims to encourage a balanced
lifestyle for participants and give them the tools, in turn, to promote
balance for teachers in their schools.
TOCC now includes 168 e-coaching modules in nine competency areas related
to Emotional Intelligence. These include: Stress Management, Time Management,
Managing Yourself, Managing Others, Communication, Managing Change, Fourteen
new modules will be coming on stream in September 2002 on the subject
of Dealing With Discrimination and Harassment. The learning design focuses
on solution focused questions to promote creative thinking. Each module
takes about 15 minutes to complete.
"Our goal is to help our professional and administrative staff be among
the best prepared in their field. This will help us to continue to recruit
and keep the best and the brightest teaching and support staff. Our Take
One Step work life harmony program supported by TOCC has received enthusiastic
response from our administrators." Debra Mitchell, Superintendent of Human
Resources at the Peel District School Board.
