Big 8 - Your leadership foundations toolkit, Sept '22
To achieve ‘A Big Education’ we need to move from monologue to dialogue, from groupthink to multiple perspectives, to leading and listening. It requires a culture of feedback, challenge and support. This course will develop you in the toolkit of the Big 8 – a set of behaviours, mindsets, cultures, and approaches that underpin this work.
Think about your work experience as a student. What did you learn? What skills did you develop? How did it impact your future? For many of us work experience was a week or two of menial tasks like making cups of tea. At School 21 we wanted to give our students a real world experience, which would actually have an impact on their future.
This playbook shares our insights and ideas about how to support staff (and your own) wellbeing at this time. It sets out a way of taking stock, having conversations, considering ideas and starting to form a plan for the coming months.
Schools have had to face the huge challenge of children returning after Covid with a fluid and constantly set of government directives and expectations. Yet at the same time, this remains a time of possibility and optimism. We can build back better.
The pandemic has made one aspect of our leadership even more important: communication. Get it right and we can build a great team spirit and sense of community to get through a crisis and build strong next steps.
