General Description

Sick of listening to everyone else? This course is your turn to be heard as leaders. Learn the principles of transformative leadership and coaching psychology, to better manage the blamers and support the high flyers.

1. Getting clear on what you want
As leaders we are not only accountable but try to inspire responsibility in others. Transformative leaders are those who set a clear vision that is shared by others, stimulate reflection and model emotional management (Leithwood, 2007). AITSL agrees that coaching psychology offers teachers valuable tools to mentor new scheme teachers or support experienced teachers as they grow into leadership positions. Either way, coaching psychology is a simple and effective, evidence based way to address teaching standards, develop professional practice and better lead others on their teaching journey.

2. Understanding a coach-approach
Business executives have been using a coach-approach for years with growing evidence showing the benefits for school leaders. In this session we learn the science of coaching and explore simple and effective strategies that encourage reflection, insight into pedagogy and build positive learning communities. We explore the dynamics of teams and ways to remove the ‘us & them’ mentality to move from storming to performing.

3. Manage others by being my best self
As leaders we are often expected to hear the issues of everyone else but what about you? With theory and practice from the previous sessions we look at typical scenarios of how to move people from good to great with opportunities to vent, share and learn from each other. We explore options for managing the bullies, bludgers and blamers whilst supporting our consistent, reliable colleagues as well. Participants leave with strategies to better manage others, a greater understanding of their own strengths and how to better manage their own wellbeing.
