BSA webinar: Strategically leading and flexing in response to the current challenging landscape
June 01, 2020
Audience: Heads, Governors, Leadership and Management
Leading and managing in a time of change is challenging at the best of times. But leading and managing in a time of unprecedented and uncontrollable unpredictability presents a whole new level of challenge and unease.
This webinar will provide you with the valuable time to stop and reflect. You will join with other educationalists going through the same adversities and have the opportunity to share and learn from each other’s experiences. Practical tips, strategies and discussion points are presented, to take away and employ with your leadership colleagues, as you continue to guide your organisations through this turbulent time.
- How are you coping with the current uncertainty?
- Are you successfully managing and leading your teams through the crisis, or do you feel you are lurching from one challenge to the next?
- Have you considered the landscape ‘beyond lockdown’?
