Coaching for School Leadership Teams
We support School Leadership Teams with coaching designed to help them lead effectively and collaboratively, so that they can overcome the challenges of their roles and deliver the best outcomes for their school.
Every senior leadership team ( SLT’s) has the desire to be able to work effectively for the benefit of every staff member and child in their school. However, as many an SLT team member will testify, working together for the success of everyone is not always a goal that is easily achieved. Inevitably challenges arise, such as:
1. Disagreement as to how goals can be achieved
2. Personality and work style conflict
3. Poor levels of communication
4. Confusion over roles and responsibilities
5. Blurred lines of accountability
6. Lack of understanding about effective team processes
When Senior Leadership Teams experience any of the above challenges, leading as a collective becomes burdensome and seriously impacts the performance of the team. If your team are struggling with these challenges, then Coaching for Senior Leadership Teams could be right for your school…
Do you want an SLT that is…
What can you Expect?
To help you build a resilient, collaborative and solution-focused School Leadership Team in your school, we support SLTs to…
– Establish a process for holding meetings in which all team members feel safe, valued, listened to and understood
– Know how to self-manage and have open, constructive and supportive dialogue with one another
– Understand why conflicts arise and how to positively address for the benefit of all
– Achieve coherence around strategy, implementation of policy and systems that support full commitment and accountability from all team members
– Display increased Emotional Intelligence, resilience and ability to work collaboratively through the ups and downs of school life
Our work with all of our schools is bespoke. We do not adopt a ‘one size fits all’ approach. We understand that every school is unique, and that context, circumstance and challenge will be different for each and every Senior Leadership Team. However, there are three core values around which our approach is built:
By its very nature coaching supports innovation, creativity and the creation of cultures that are closely linked to a school’s vision.
We work with SLT’s to develop powerful learning that is supported by key relationships that help to release creative energy for positive change across SLT’s.
We are committed to the promise held in the lives of all of our children: this commitment is a hallmark of everything Integrity does with all its schools. We believe success is achieved through a shared understanding of the powerful role holistic and person-focused education plays in helping children to fulfil their promise.
When we embark on any work with an SLT we begin by helping SLT’s to re-connect with what matters most; The children, their promise and the vision that the school has for fulfilling their promise.
We believe that success is achieved through collaborations that brings together the knowledge and expertise of our schools and ourselves as coaches.
Our work with SLT’s is a collaborative process. Sessions and learning intentions are agreed together in order to ensure that they fit closely with a school’s desired outcomes for our work with them.
