Increasing leadership capacity using Andrew’s discrete approach is cost-effective and can help reduce stress.
Is your work-life balance out-of-step?
School are complex organisations to lead and manage. Whilst headship offers a fantastic opportunity to inspire a new generation of children and young people, day-to-day leadership can be a real challenge.
Sometimes however it’s not easy to tackle everything on your To Do list. The usual way through busy periods is just to work ever longer hours. Simply extending your work day is not satisfactory and can be harmful to your health and personal relationships.
Now there is an alternative!
I am an experienced headteacher and offer not only consultancy and mentoring, but practical hands-on support. So whether it’s a quick phone call or something longer term, I’m always happy to help.
Take a look at your To Do list.
How many tasks do you truly have to complete yourself?
Why don’t you delegate them to someone else on your team?
If you’re anything like me, you felt you couldn’t delegate for one of these reasons:
- Only I could do it properly.
- I could show someone how to do it, but that would take too long.
- No-one understands it like me.
- I want to get a feel for the initiative without worrying anyone else.
- Everyone else is too busy.
Now you can delegate it to me!
These are just some of the tasks I can deal with:
- Draft and refresh policies
- Research new initiatives
- Analyse data
- Budget new activities
- Update School Development Plans
- Write discussion papers for Governors
- Confidential personnel issues
- Disciplinary Investigations
- Ensure compliance
- …or just provide a confidential, independent sounding board
Delegating tasks to me is cost-effective and reduces stress. You only pay for the time it takes to complete the job and there’s no ongoing fees. So once a week or once in a blue moon – it’s up to you!
Contact Andrew today if:
- You want to go home earlier
- You want a shorter To Do list
- You couldn’t recruit a Deputy
- You’re a new Headteacher
- You need confidential, independent support
