Over a two-year period, state universities in New Jersey collaborated with the Department of Education to bring professional development to school and district leaders. Interviews were conducted with the 66 school and district leaders who participated in the workshop to understand the ways in which participants were practicing what they had learned. Key areas of impact that were revealed during the interviews included the importance of active listening, increased evidence of distributed leadership, and the connection of coaching skills to other initiatives and responsibilities. In addition, participants compared their experience in the coaching workshop to other professional development, illuminating the importance of applying principles of effective adult learning to leadership development.
