Dr Andy Cope, the Art of Brilliance
Dr Andy Cope is a qualified teacher, author and learning junkie. He is the UK's first 'Doctor of Happiness' having completed a PhD in Positive Psychology at Loughborough University. Andy is also a best-selling author; he writes the 'Brilliant' range of self-help books for adults and teenagers, and pens the successful children's 'Spy Dog' series for Puffin Books.
It makes no odds what you already know. No matter how many PhDs you've got, educational leadership is going to challenge you. School can be awesome, but it can also be cruel, relentless and unforgiving. There will be times when it feels like it's trying to break you.
This is your time-out. I believe leaders need to be challenged in an entertaining and humane way. If they can gain insight and chuckle at the same time, then learning becomes fun. If there was no bull, big words or psychobabble, even better.
Enter, centre stage, 'Brilliant Leadership', a rip-roaring tour through the essentials of leadership as it needs to be RIGHT NOW.
My aim is to inspire and rejuvenate by removing the yoke from the leader's neck.
So chill, it's only chaos. Here's the plot spoiler - Your job as leader is NOT to inspire people - Your job as a leader is to BE INSPIRED.
