Picture of the productCoaching Interpreters
Performing the role of a coach for interpreters is more than just knowing about interpretation theory and skills. It is about understanding relationships, supporting the agenda of those being coached, listening for cues, and being an accountability partner. In the field of interpretation, it is not unusual for the role of a coach and a mentor to be confused with one another. An experienced interpreter is prepared to share his or her professional wisdom and experiences with new interpreters. Yet, just like interpretation, the key to effective coaching is to understand the audience, which in this case is the one being coached, known as the client. Based on more than 200 hours of coaching tour guides and interpreters, this is the first book to provide the profession of interpretation with a more precise understanding of what it takes to coach others in a way that will enhance interpretation skills and, ultimately, the audience experience.

Interpretive Solutions will help you harness the power of interpretive communications to improve critical resource protection issues and situations. Matching the right communications approach with the audience most in need of being reached can play a pivotal role in whether a situation stabilizes, improves, or worsens. Appropriate communications can make a positive difference in the role people play in helping to achieve desired resource protection outcomes and results.

The merging of sound interpretive methods with scientifically based resource protection messages is an emerging goal of most, if not all, land protection agencies and organizations. The steady gain of this blended approach is encouraging and, amid climate change, oil spills, unprecedented spread of invasive species, and radical changes to natural fire regimes, it is needed more than ever.

Interpretive Solutions is a joint effort between the National Park Service, Natural Resource Stewardship and Science Office of Education and Outreach, and National Association for Interpretation.
