Whether you are an experienced Principal or new to the role, leading your senior leadership team is not as straightforward as some would have you believe.  There is a need for Principals to be strategic and rigorous in their thinking about the team’s purpose, to understand the essential requirements that enable the team to be outstanding, and to invest significantly in the team as team as well as in the individual team members.
In this masterclass, designed for Principals and those who lead senior teams, we will consider the essential characteristics of high performing senior leadership teams using Ruth Wageman’s model as the starting point for our thinking.   Case studies taken from current work with senior teams will be used to illustrate the impact of this focus.  We will focus on the work of the senior team, real work that only it can do, and how team members need to ‘be’, in order for that work to have impact.  And crucially, we will address in a practical way the role of the Principal in leading the senior team; how does the Principal balance the role of leader and team coach with that of being a team member?
