"Why is that person being resistant?" "They just don't like change!" are two things we often hear when an instructional coach, teacher leader or building leader is trying to work with others. What is masked as resistance may be a lack of self-efficacy (the confidence and belief they have in their own actions).
Helping someone develop their own self-efficacy is not always easily done. It's even harder to do when the instructional coach, teacher leader or building leader passes judgement first and then try to offer help.
In this first of the series of 3-Minute Collaborative Leader videos (based in research and practice), Peter DeWitt, Ed.D explains what self-efficacy is and 3 steps we can take to help others develop it. Hint one...it begins with how we approach the person.
