Coaching and mentoring example scenario 3



Rochelle recently become Head of Department at Kiwi High School. She feels she has the skills for the job but is having feelings of imposter syndrome, and concerns about her ability to carry out the role. For fear of making herself vulnerable, and possibly risking being seen as incapable of doing the job, Rochelle doesn’t want to confide in anyone in the school. She feels anxious and needs a safe place to work with an external person, who she can confidentially run ideas past. She decides CORE's coaching and mentoring programme fits the bill. With her mentor, Rochelle identifies some valuable resources, and finds the discussions about how they are relevant to her own professional growth, priceless.
