Leading On - Leadership can be lonely

Leadership can – at times - be a lonely existence. Even when surrounded by great colleagues, governors and MAT team members…no one, NO ONE feels the responsibility, the vulnerability, the exposure, the anxiety that leaders do. Most interactions are positive but the voice in the head, the 24/7/365 voice can sometimes undermine, erode, berate, sabotage, keep us awake and gnaw at our confidence. In this session, Pete will share some tips and tools to control that voice when its negative and get our Leadership mojo forward thinking, positive and affirming to keep us company, keep us going and keep us healthy.

Using humour, real-life stories, practical fun tools Pete will share a number of tried and tested tools and tricks to coach ourselves, use the voice in our head to help us move on with confidence and a lightness of heart.
