Interview Preparation: What Does the Coaching Process Entail? Have you considered being coached to improve your performance during an interview and wondered what it entailed? As a successful coach of 100’s of educators over the last seven years, let me give you an overview of my approach which includes: (1) a preliminary review of your resume and cover letter; (2) a brief complimentary telephone in-take conversation; (3) several (between one and four) one-on-one, face-to-face, one-hour coaching…See More

It's about building your narrative, creating a chemistry, that demonstrates you are a good match, a good fit, for what they're really looking for; a good match for what their community…See More

WHEN SHOULD YOU BEGIN PREPARING FOR A JOB SEARCH by LARRY ARONSTEIN

When Should You Begin Preparing for a Job Search It is never too early to begin preparing for a job search. Most candidates don’t get serious about their search early enough. They procrastinate until the “prime seasons” for job postings. In general, Superintendent searches happen from January through March, Central Office from February to April, Principals from April to May, and all other supervisory jobs from March through May. Serious job search preparation includes up-dating and revising…See More

The Inside Candidate by Larry Aronstein

The Inside Candidate Should you even bother to apply for a job when you know that there are inside candidates? Can you beat out an insider? Are the cards already stacked against you? The short answer is that you should apply—there is nothing to lose. The actual status of the insider or insiders is unknown. The “powers that be”, the superintendent, board members, other administrators, may not favor the insider. The insider may have been on the wrong side of some internal issue, or is just not…See More

Difficult and/or Resistant Staff by Larry Aronstein

Difficult and/or Resistant Staff Every faculty has difficult and/or resistant people. I think that most supervisors would agree that dealing with them is the most challenging aspect of their job. Being a difficult person is a personality trait. Difficult people come in several varieties. They are often whiners, judgmental, opinionated, and negative. Resistant people do not like change. Resistance can range from being fairly subtle, such as avoidance or passive aggressive behavior, all the way…See More

Dr. Aronstein,

I look forward to your presentation tomorrow.  I have been in education for 26 years and a new principal for the last two years.  I want to know what I will be when I grow up??

 

Hopefully, the weather cooperates.
