About The Organization
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 Leadership Coach/Facilitators 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.
Leadership Coach/Facilitators will work in a team led by the Director of Coaching & Facilitation to provide executive coaching for principals and high-quality facilitation for campus teams during sessions of our Campus Leadership Program (CLP). Alongside other Leadership Coach/Facilitators and CLP staff, you will guide cohorts of campus leaders through a comprehensive two-year CLP.
As a Leadership Coach/Facilitator, your job will be to support school leaders to ensure maximum impact and benefit from their training and successful implementation of their learning within their school districts. Working with the programs team at Holdsworth, you will help ensure that learning outcomes and objectives for each session of the CLP are met, and that the content delivered through program sessions is part of a coherent and powerful arc of learning. During program sessions, you and your team will pull together the themes discussed that day and relate them to the roles of leaders. Bringing campus teams together will involve navigating interpersonal dynamics and building a psychologically safe environment where leaders can effectively collaborate on a range of issues. Your job will also include providing executive coaching to CLP principals on an approximate bi-weekly basis, helping them to create developmental goals and implement personal growth plans.
This role is a part-time, contractual role for the next year, with both the hope that you would continue working with your CLP teams in their second year of the program and the possibility of becoming a full-time role in the future, if desired. For this one-year contract, we expect all Leadership Coach/Facilitators to commit to: attending all CLP session dates; providing coaching for principals via telephone or videoconference and two in-person visits; and participating in professional development, virtual meetings, and networking around coaching and facilitation.
A typical contract for July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 will include:
For your information, tentative sets of CLP dates for Year 2 of the program are:
Desirable candidates will have a range of prior experience and capabilities to include:
Contract value will range from $27,000 to $37,000, plus travel expenses, depending on the number of leaders coached.
