This masterclass is intended for aspiring (or new) school leaders and offers an introduction to working with the different groups of people in order to lead a happy and highly functioning organization. School leaders work with their board, parents, communities, and staff to create the optimum learning environment for students where all can thrive.


This is an opportunity, to learn some of the theory, take a leap in your thinking and listen to the tales from those who have trodden this path before.
This masterclass aims to provide insight into:-


  • An education worth having - setting the vision. 

  • Working with the school board.

  • Bringing the people with you.

  • School leaders - where the rubber hits the road.
