How often have you thought… “Why on earth are we doing it this way… surely it would be better if…..?”

If you have had that thought on more than one occasion then you may have already become a part of the middle leadership group or aspiring to do so. Middle leaders often find themselves at the epicentre of conflicting demands and pressures – from parents, senior leaders, team members and colleagues and not least pupils. When you are constantly firefighting it is easy to lose sight of why you wanted the role in the first place.

This course is focussed on those new to middle leadership, aspiring to achieve that role, or those that just feel the need to reboot themselves and rediscover the joy of leadership.

Programme outline:

Leading or managing – an important distinction?

  • Leadership and management – two sides of the same coin?
  • Styles of leadership and the characteristics of highly effective leaders
  • Developing your leadership credentials

The art thriving and not just surviving

  • Managing workload – swimming not drowning through paperwork, email and the question “do you have two minutes…?”
  • Dr Who is not the only Time Lord… and how to become one
  • Meetings – a misuse of time or a rewarding collaboration?

Leading and developing the team

  • The importance of vision, principles and modelling
  • Assessing my team – how good are we?
  • Taking the team forward – individually and collectively
  • Successful difficult conversations

Change – if, when and how..

  • Are you thinking strategically?
  • You as the lead change agent and the role of the team

Course tutor: Paul Bevis
