Taunton Teaching Alliance were delighted to welcome Julia Steward, Leadership Development Consultant and professional coach, to talk on the subject of emotional resilience in school leaders and within the school environment as part of the current Inspiring Leadership programme of CPD events.
This week’s powerful Blog of the Week comes from from @TeacherToolkit and looks at behaviour from an empathetic approach with some useful suggestions. There must be a zero tolerance policy to poor behaviour, but also we need to be skilled in reading and defusing situations that arise.
