“ A ‘Coaching for the Soul” Call offers you a safe and confidential space to talk openly and honestly about the challenges of school leadership and find meaningful solutions for overcoming them.”
I believe that if leaders are to maintain high levels of personal performance and consistently deliver the best possible outcomes for their pupils, amidst the tough emotional challenges of Headship, they need support now and again.
They need support that when the going gets tough (as it always does), our leaders can get back up again and, with renewed focus and energy, carry on towards their dream. This involves affording our leaders opportunities to reflect, gain clarity and find solutions with someone who is impartial and understands the challenges they’re experiencing.

When we take off our “leadership armour” & face our vulnerabilities we can allow ourselves to:
– Experience greater alignment between our inner/private world of thoughts, feelings and emotions and our outer/public world, which by contrast is on constant display to others and again as you know can be exhausting!
– Develop a greater understanding of our emotions and their impact on us and how to develop greater levels of emotional resilience
– Be seen for who we truly are and learn to be compassionate and accepting of ourselves – warts and all!
