  • The key characteristics of highly effective middle leaders
  • The fundamental differences between middle and senior leadership
  • The importance of getting the right people on the bus (inheriting vs inhabiting)
  • How to choose the correct school for you to lead
  • How a change of school could keep more people in the profession
  • The one way to be a great head teacher
