LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

WHILST ON THE JOB

FOR SENIOR  & ASPIRING LEADERS

Owning your voice in creating positive change in education

Leadership  Development  through a coaching approach increases your sense of agency as a leader, opening up new ways of leading and  increasing your effectiveness in working with the many different stakeholders involved in the school environment. Coaching sessions are highly individualised and extremely responsive to your specific needs including themes which emerge as the programme unfolds. Key focus areas will be established at the beginning of the programme, and will be reviewed regularly, and revised as appropriate.

 

Areas of Focus:

In broad terms, coaching is likely to include:

  • A deeper understanding of your leadership and leadership styles

  • Frameworks for effective relationship building

  • Exploration of personal and organisational values

  • Your desired impact and range

  • Communication strategies and building support networks

  • Strategic and tactical planning

  • Scenario planning and deep reflection

  • Regular ‘pulse checks’ of progress and effectiveness

  • Action planning for the future

Many schools have their leaders complete a Leadership 360° Assessment or personality profile prior to the coaching to highlight possible areas for development and to create a springboard for transformation.
