This workshop will provide an overview of Behaviour Drivers. It will help aspiring and new Heads gain a clear understanding of your own internal response to stress and workload issues. You will be supported to identify the degree to which your responses enable you to work at your best or otherwise. Through a series of interactive tasks and discussions, participants will be able to devise their own strategies for ensuring that amidst the busyness of life as a school leader, you are able to remain grounded and clear-headed, with a clear sense of purpose and direction when prioritising your workload.
By the end of this session, individuals will have:
- identified what drives you and how this affects your approach to stress and workload issues
- explored characteristics of the five key drivers and how to build on the strength of each as a leader
- create an effective personal action plan to help minimise stress and support you to operate at your best when back in school
Newly appointed heads in the first two years of your appointment.
