A write up of my presentation at #TMExcel #Leadership
According to LinkedIn (!) it’s my third year anniversary of being a leader. It’s an interesting time to try to work out what leadership means – this year in particular seems to have seen a real dearth of leadership, or at least leadership role models that don’t make me despair about the future of the human race. And it’s that lack of leadership politically that has made me more aware of how important leadership is.
Post-Brexit, it wasn’t to the leaders of the world that I turned for reassurance – mostly because they were all hiding – but also because they seemed to have become caricatures of the dishonest and self-serving politician. So I turned instead to the leaders in education, as did staff and students all around the country. That’s the weight of responsibility that a school leader bears.
