Strengthen Your School Leadership

CAIS values the constant and deliberate quest for excellence, and we recognize the vital leadership role that governors play, in partnership with Heads, in the success of our schools. We want all of our schools to have strong Heads who focus on supporting the students of the present, but we also want strong Boards that focus on supporting the students of the future.

The Governance Guide include new learning on a number of areas, including Human Resources, Risk Management, Head Transitions, and Consent Agendas.

Coaching: GROWing Your Leadership and Your Culture

View Recording

Date: May 10, 2017

    Duration: 1 hour


    When we think about pace and priorities, building in processes for coaching conversations and for feedback to create more balanced, agile leadership is crucial in our organizations today. How you mobilize the strengths and passions of your own leadership and those around you, will make a difference to you, to your teams and to your organization.

    Join Heather Clayton, in part 2 of Coaching and Leadership Webinars. On May 10 from 12 – 1 ET we will be focussing on Coaching: GROWing your Leadership and your Culture. We will build on the principles of effective questions from the last session and we will explore:

    • the GROW model of coaching
    • how you might engage and empower others with coaching in your context
    • the research on coaching and building a coaching culture
    • Our most important resource is our people. Coaching creates the time and space to maximize that resource. “The key to greatness is to look for people's potential and spend time developing it”. - Peter Drucker
