(CONTRACT) Executive Leadership Coach
The Holdsworth Center is a non-profit organization founded and largely funded by Charles Butt, Chairman and CEO of H-E-B, a regional retail company. Our mission is to impact, over time, the quality of K-12 public education for all Texas students by supporting and developing leaders. Based in Austin, Texas, our campus and programs are being developed in honor of Charles’ mother, Mary Elizabeth Holdsworth Butt, who was an educator, a philanthropist, and a lifelong champion for social justice.
We partner with public school districts over five years to help them grow outstanding leaders at all levels so that staff thrive, and students excel in every classroom. At Holdsworth, we believe leadership isn’t just about titles. We make a deep investment in leaders at both the district and campus levels, including teachers who lead students in the classroom and influence and lead their colleagues.
The Holdsworth Center is seeking Executive Leadership Coaches who share a deep commitment to our mission and whose experience and vision will deepen our capacity and enhance our impact as we aim to be of service to public school districts across the state of Texas.
Contract Executive Leadership Coaches will work in a team that is overseen by the Director of Coaching to provide executive coaching for principals as part of our Campus Leadership Program (CLP). Alongside other Executive Leadership Coaches and CLP staff, you will guide principals through a one-year executive coaching experience to make significant and sustainable progress towards their personal leadership goals.
You must have a strong desire to help Leaders in our programs thrive in their careers and lead their campuses effectively. We are looking for individuals who share our passion for developing leadership in public education in order to increase excellent and equitable outcomes for all students.
As a Contract Executive Leadership Coach, your job will be to provide executive coaching to CLP principals on an approximate bi-weekly basis, helping them to identify personal leadership goals and implement personal growth plans. While the majority of executive coaching is conducted by phone or video-conference, this role does contain some expectations for travel in Texas due to school visits for the principals you coach and other events where your presence is required.
This role is a part-time, contractual role for the next academic year, with both the hope that you would consider a new contract to work with new CLP principals after this contract ends and the possibility of becoming a full-time role in the future, if desired. For this one-year contract, we expect all Executive Leadership Coaches to commit to providing coaching for principals via telephone or video-conference; conducting two school visits per principal; and participating in professional development, meetings, and networking around coaching. A typical contract for June 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022 will include:
Contract value will range from $24,350 to $55,150 (approximately $175 per coaching session, inclusive of prep and follow-up time), depending on the number of principals coached, plus travel expenses for school visits. We are seeking coaches who can take on a minimum of six principals and our maximum coaching contract is 14 principals.
Desirable candidates will have a range of prior experience and capabilities to include:
