Code: REA-278 Leadership Development Programme - Senior Leaders (SLDP) (EVENT FULL)

REAch2 is entering a second year of working with Andy Buck to support school leaders, and 2017/18 sees this work developing further in offering two practical-based programmes aimed at supporting senior leaders. Each programme supports the touchstones of Leadership, Learning and Inspiration, and is customised specifically to senior leadership, whilst sharing core content, which includes: - An introduction to the leadership framework underpinning the programme and the concept of culture, climate and discretionary effort, using David Pendleton’s Primary Colours model - Understanding personal leadership predispositions: using an online tool to explore each leader’s personality profile and how that informs their developmental needs, drawing on Daniel Goleman’s leadership styles - Vision, values, strategy, building a team, delegation, managing change, prioritisation and work–home balance - An introduction to incremental coaching, with an opportunity to practise developing the skills needed to use this approach effectively - Using evidence to inform practice: how leaders at all levels can make better use of evidence when deciding upon strategies for school improvement - How to have difficult conversations and hold others to account effectively: an opportunity to learn about ways to make this difficult task easier and more effective. The programmes aim to inspire leaders to lead effectively in their schools with courage, confidence, vision and passion. The programme has three core elements: 1. Three face-to-face delivery days facilitated by Andy Buck 2. A Leadership Impact Project (LIP), which will be set up, monitored and reviewed on the training days, allowing participants to practise their leadership in a project aimed to impact on an area of school they identify. 3. Access to a range of resources to allow participants to continue developing their leadership skills between lessons.
