I have been using the PIIC / TPIIC coaching model for 15 years. It is very similar to the Apple Coaching Model, albeit with different terminology.

Check out Instructional Coaching in Action. It details the aforementioned coaching model.

Jim Knight's books are always popular. My issue with his model is that at times he recommends one-and-done and evaluative processes. Those are both bad ideas for instructional coaches.

Orbiting the Giant Hairball by Gordon MacKenzie offers guidance on how to stay creative, take risks, drive what matters, and stay level within organizations that have complex procedures and dynamics. It helps me stay above the "hairball" to be my most creative and helpful self. I recommend it for every learning coach and leader!

I think the Jim Knight books are great. Hard to pick just one.
