Vision and Values

We have a bold vision for transforming the education sector and hold several key values to guide our work with School Leaders.

Our Vision

Our vision is of an ethical, humanitarian school system led by emotionally and psychologically resilient School Leaders.

It is a vision in which values such as Integrity, Wholeness, Authenticity, Social Justice and Racial Equality have true meaning and are fully expressed in school communities through the way School Leaders address the local and global challenges they face.

Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire, nurture and support School Leaders to model these values and lead with authenticity, courage and clear purpose.

Through our range of coaching and leadership development programmes we aim to:

  • Promote well-being on a personal, professional and societal level
  • Inspire organisational improvement and social change
  • Support self-aware, ethical, sustainable and humanitarian leadership
  • Enable our School Leaders to solve complex problems and transform the lives of the pupils and communities they serve

Our Values-Based Approach

Integrity

We believe that integrity is a foundational value for all human relationships. It embraces trust, honesty and respect. It invites a necessary level of questioning and reflection that leads to greater personal and professional authenticity.

Nurture

It is through care and attention that we bring out the best in others. We demonstrate this through deep listening with our clients. Through being of service in this way, we nurture your self-belief and where you may feel self-doubt, we demonstrate our trust and belief in you so that you can achieve success on your own terms.

Train

We want you to be experts in how you manage your thoughts and emotions – particularly when under stress. Working at your own pace, we help you re-train your thought processes so that your behaviours and actions become more aligned with the truth of who you really are.

Empower

We know that courage is a daily necessity as a School Leader and can wane under intense levels of personal accountability and public scrutiny. Through tried and tested methods, we help you to stay rooted in your core strengths and abilities and know how to call upon them when you need them the most.

Guided

We trust you! You wouldn’t be where you are now if you didn’t have a dream or the capabilities to succeed. We won’t try to tell you our way of doing things. Instead, through our coaching processes, we will help you understand how to be guided by yourself at a much deeper level.

Reflection

Coaching offers you an opportunity to stop, pause and reflect and learn from your experiences. Reflection helps you learn important lessons about yourself, which can lead to deep personal transformation for yourself and those you lead and manage.

Impartial

We are accountable to you. Our sole aim is to help and support you to be the best you can be. We provide you with a safe and protected place where you can let down your mask without fear of judgement or criticism. Your coach is someone with whom you can be vulnerable, a trusted confidant to share your thoughts, fears, hopes and dreams with.

Tailored

Coaching is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach to professional development. It is very much a personalised approach tailored to meet you where you are and work with you to create a future that has meaning and purpose.

You

We focus on you, not just as a leader but as a human being! We value your well-being hugely and aim to help you meet your needs and create balance in your life. It is only when your own needs have been fulfilled that you can meet the needs of others.
