The Enneagram for Instructional Coaches with Myrna Cervetti, Ep. 63 Buzzing with Ms. B: The Coaching Podcast

On this episode of the podcast, Myrna Cervetti of Enneahealth joins me to discuss what is the Enneagram and the nine different types. She talks about how instructional coaches can identify the Enneagram for teachers and understand what motivates the things they do. This episode is for you if you’ve been wanting to learn more about the types of Enneagrams and how you can use that knowledge to support your teachers. Listen to learn about what Enneagrams need to hear from you as a coach.
Do you know your Enneagram type?

When you begin to understand the Enneagram, it can change how you see yourself and others. 

I'm an Enneagram 1. People with this Enneagram type like supporting others with changes, so it makes sense that I became a coach!

The Enneagram can be applied to many things - workplace interactions, relationships, and even the way we think. It helps increase our self-awareness by getting in touch with who we are and giving us insight into those we coach.

One of the most important aspects is that it shows us that not everyone thinks like we do or views life through our perspective. It’s a valuable lesson when communicating anything!

Myrna Cervetti of Enneahealth joins me on this podcast to discuss how the Enneagram can be used when coaching teachers. She knows a lot about this subject because she used to be an instructional coach.

In this episode, we discuss the nine different Enneagram types and how understanding them can help you as an instructional coach. We talk about ways the Enneagram can be used by schools. Myrna also shares why it should be used as a supportive tool to get to know the people we coach better.

You’re going to get a lot out of this episode whether you’re brand new to the Enneagram or have been learning about it for a while.

How Do You Do It All? Tiering Teachers for Instructional Support, Ep. 60 Buzzing with Ms. B: The Coaching Podcast

It can be difficult, if not impossible, to meet work demands as an instructional coach. Luckily, there are things you can do to maximize your time. In this episode, I share how I use data to group teachers into instructional support tiers. I tell you how to get a free copy of my Coaching Cycle Document and explain how to use it. Listen for practical tips that will help your teachers get the specific support they need to grow.
You can’t do it all, even if you’re expected to!

Each teacher needs individualized support, but there are only so many hours in the day.

When we taught in the classroom, we prioritized our goals and differentiated our instruction. It’s the same with instructional coaching.

In this episode, I walk you through the steps I take to make sure every teacher gets what they need. This is a real strategy that made a huge impact on my campus.

This approach begins by examining available data. Next, three teacher tiers are created based on the needs of each group.

The level of assistance each teacher receives is based on their tier. The type of support varies, but there are lots of opportunities for everyone to grow professionally.

I use my Coaching Cycle Document with my third-tier teachers to set goals and follow up. It’s helped me be more consistent and focused on the specific work that needs to be done with each teacher. Sign up to get your free copy below.
