The 360° coach is a training offered by EscouadeÉDU. Founded by Marius Bourgeoys, Stéphane Hunter and Marie-Andrée Ouimet, this company offers training and support to organizations and individuals who wish to take the time to rethink their vision in order to properly meet the needs of their learners. During the 360° Coach training, the EscouadeÉDU team supports participants in developing their educational leadership.
On February 1 and 2, 2019, I had the chance to experience two days of learning and reflection on a subject that fascinates me: education. When I arrived there, I was warmly welcomed by Marius Bourgeoys, Stéphane Hunter, Marie-Andrée Ouimet d'EscouadeÉDU as well as by Lori, the director of the L'Escale Catholic high school which hosted the event.
To begin these two days of training, we dived into our past in order to bring out as a group the common points that linked us to each other. We continued with a self-knowledge activity to finally get to the heart of the matter: leadership and influence. Because in our role as educator, no matter who we relate to, developing our leadership skills will allow us to have a positive impact on people.
For a long time, I believe that we must rethink the role of the teacher.- Julie R-Bordeleau (@ApprendreEdu) February 1, 2019
Deep down, I have always felt like a guide, a model. I never felt like a teacher in the traditional sense. https://t.co/UIKiDnyBje

It is through the presentation of several authors, speakers, influencers and others that we have opened our horizons and refined our conception of leadership and influence. We have discovered or rediscovered some of John Maxwell's laws of leadership, the four questions that determine Robert Marzano's engagement as well as quotes like "What does the person tell me that they don't tell me?" " by Serge Goyette.
The foundations of commitment and motivation:- Julie R-Bordeleau (@ApprendreEdu) February 1, 2019
1. How do I feel?
2. Am I interested?
3. Is this important to me?
4. Am I able to do this
Start from the learner, be inspired by them, make them the STARS!#lecoacha360
Subsequently, we had a first coaching experience by playing three roles: the observer, the coachee and the coach. We familiarized ourselves with the concepts related to the 360 coaching approach. To end the first day, we talked about continuous improvement and the laws of growth, including those of intentionality, pain, mirror, reflection and elastic.

The difference between trainer, mentor and coach? The coach insinuates that the person has the resources in them. The mentor guides to resources. The trainer explains. There is no harm in coming and going between these three hats! #lecoacha360- Julie R-Bordeleau (@ApprendreEdu) February 1, 2019
The approach #lecoacha360 aims to develop HUMAN first. By questioning, it is assumed that the learner has the answers within him. But before entering a coaching process, yes, we must model, train, mentor and then go beyond and have an impact. pic.twitter.com/SVuSI3SLsU- Julie R-Bordeleau (@ApprendreEdu) February 2, 2019
To start the second day, we discussed the role of the teacher in today's educational context. What experiences do I want to create in my environment? What's my plan?
We forget to put experience before the material, evaluation, planning. What are people going to remember in 10 years? What impact do we want to create? #lecoacha360- Julie R-Bordeleau (@ApprendreEdu) February 1, 2019
Certainly when we take the time to think about what we really want, that taking a step back helps us move forward and make a difference. After learning about the main elements related to paradigm shift and change leadership, we identified the needs of our learners and listed the levers that could allow us to respond to them.
I look at this picture while listening to @ monsieurhunter and a word comes to mind: socioconstructivism. Co-Improvement: Alone we go faster, together we go further! #lecoacha360 pic.twitter.com/VYhCKEssnE- Julie R-Bordeleau (@ApprendreEdu) February 2, 2019
Before concluding these two days of training with an objectification, we talked about the usefulness of ICT for exercising leadership and keeping traces of learning and reflections (in addition to modeling good practices for learners).
