Professional athletes have coaches, so why should professional Christian school leaders be any different? People at the top of their game benefit from coaching; to desire coaching demonstrates a desire to improve from a position of strength.
Leadership is hard, and school leaders benefit from the opportunity to process situations, events, and their own leadership. Schools that provide access to and support for self-stewardship and counseling better serve and will be better served by their school leaders. School leaders and their boards should prioritize resources that promote mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing.
