Free “Coaching for the Soul” Call
with Viv Grant
“I know that one of the hardest things for me as a School Leader was showing my vulnerability and finding someone neutral to talk to about my questions, doubts and feelings about the role.
Yet, now I have come to realise that learning to embrace our vulnerabilities is one of the most courageous and bravest things any human-being can do.”
What would I get from a
Free “Coaching for the Soul” Call with Viv?
Your call will be treated with the utmost confidentiality, so you can let your mask down without fear of judgement
Identify the steps that you can take to bring about positive change
The emotional care and support to help you overcome whatever issues you’re facing
Create a sense of clarity about what you really want out of your life as a school leader
“ 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.”
When we take off the leadership armour of the ‘Super Head’ & face our vulnerabilities we 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!
If, like I was, you are struggling to find the right ‘listening ear’ and are searching for someone to speak to who will not:
– Jump to conclusions
– Ignore your feelings
– Distort your words
– Belittle your experiences
Then please do get in contact.

“Viv helped me reflect on why I do the things that I do, in the way that I do them. In doing so, she was able to bring me back to what motivated me to do this job in the first place.”
“Viv’s vast experience enabled her to analyse our discussions and get to the nuts and bolts of the situation very quickly”
“It was just such a wonderful relief to be able to speak honestly without being judged, knowing that I could examine my own thoughts out loud and not get into trouble for doing so.”
