Thinking Heads

A positive, collaborative problem-solving opportunity which will develop your leadership and coaching skills. The six, two hour facilitated sessions will address challenges commonly faced by headteachers.

This is a repetition of our highly successful Thinking Heads courses that have been running for over three years.

Topics are chosen by participants but typical areas covered include: 

  • Making Meetings Valuable
  • Leading Change
  • Making Lesson Observation Developmental
  • Developing Partnerships
  • Managing complex situations
  • Resolving conflict
  • Challenging dialogue

Facilitated by Thinking Classroom consultant and ILM executive coach Mike Fleetham these sessions will use techniques for creating high quality professional dialogue in a confidential setting.

Each session comprises a focused input and a structured open forum in which group members will be able to set the agenda and share their experiences, suggestions, ideas and questions. This is a positive, collaborative problem solving opportunity using group coaching activities that you can also use back in school with your leadership teams.
