This interactive workshop will allow participants to discover strategies for juggling the demands of leading schools, while balancing the various expectations of education authorities and the public. If we are to sustain our profession, with leaders whose well-being can be managed and ideally enhanced, then we need strategies to build positive relationships with the various stakeholders, within all the protocols in which educators work.

Emphasis will be placed on on developing strategies that will have a positive impact on educator wellbeing while being realistic and sustainable in the long term. Improved well-being allows for improved personal and professional dispositions. In turn this results in improved performance, which leads to better teaching and learning for students. Win, Win, Win!!

Key takeaways

  • exploration of the competing demands on school leaders
  • sustainable and practical strategies to balance relationships with protocols
  • strategies to impact positively on educator wellbeing.
