Education has embraced the coaching model as a framework for improving teaching and instruction. Yet, despite the popularity of the paradigm, there is little consensus around what educational coaching looks like in practice. To address this ambiguity, Coaching for Achievement considers several questions. What can we learn from coaches—especially successful athletic coaches—that can be applied in classroom instruction, educational leadership, collaboration, and professional development? How can educators assess and develop traits embodied by these successful coaches? What specific, practical tools will aid in this application? To answer these questions, this book will take you to a “coaches’ clinic,” a gathering of the most effective athletic coaches in their respective fields. Using lessons learned from their successes (and failures), you will have the opportunity to develop your own game plan to use in your school or classroom.

As a speaker, writer, and activist I have worked passionately against the designation of any group as “Other”.  One aspect of my work is combating teasing and bullying in schools.  A particularly poignant comment was whispered to me by a student following a presentation, “Thank you for your program; I’m Muslim, but no one here knows it”, exemplifying the danger of the very chilling climate we are in, when students and others feel they must “pass” in order to be safe.  

My programs emphasize how we are influenced by the media to adopt not just fashions, but fashionable attitudes.  I demonstrate how, historically, “just because many people scream something does not make it true”, and how “it is not a crime to be born into any ethnicity, color or religion”, though it has sometimes been treated, horrifically, as if it is.

My work is set apart by my focus on the universal experience of the injustice of what I call “appearance-ism”, as a core issue to inspire everyone to combat all types of bias.   Through sharing my personal issues with appearance-ism, and evoking our common longing for a world in which we all, individually, feel safe and valued “as-is”, I have discovered a touchstone which helps audiences appreciate the injustice of all forms of stereotyping, racism, ageism, etc.; helping them to imagine a world in which everyone claims their own worth and recognizes the worth of others.  I inspire participants, listeners and readers to, themselves, become anti-bias activists.

I emphasize the extreme importance of being an ally for others, even outside one’s own group, religion, ethnicity, etc.  My programs also address teasing, bullying, stereotyping, racism, homophobia, and discounting associated with age or health-related challenges and offer practical strategies for bridging divides of religion and ethnicity, for creating real alliances, and for crossing into one another's lives and living rooms. 


I share effective initiatives for such alliance building, as well as concrete ways that we can all come to celebrate ourselves, "as is", find our strong voices, and become anti-bias allies.   

I hope you will contact me to schedule a program, or for further information.

Thank you,
Anya Cordell
