Reflecting on my leadership

Life can be hectic, and many leaders find it hard to create the time and space to reflect on their own leadership practice. You may have attended a leadership programme or had a great mentor in the past, but the challenges in your school, trust or organisation are continually changing, and it may help to pause and consider how you can further extend your leadership skillset to achieve your best work given your current leadership context.

We know the typical challenges that leaders face. An analysis of over 100,000 coaching conversations enabled us to uncover the range of issues that leaders consistently find most difficult… this research then formed the basis of our leadership mindset curriculum.

Which of these 33 leadership mindsets are most relevant for you right now?

Personal Leadership Review

Our flexible 1:1 coaching programmes typically start with a personal leadership review. Choose from an initial self-assessment, or a 360 degree review drawing on feedback from your colleagues. This helps you consider your natural strengths and development areas across our 33 leadership mindsets, and to identify current priorities for you, given your unique leadership context. You will then discuss your reflections with a personal leadership coach during an hour-long coaching session. Your coach will help you get clear on how you want to develop your leadership and the impact you hope to achieve.

You can use the Personal Leadership Review as a one-off opportunity to reflect and review – maybe around a performance review or professional development planning meeting. Or you can use it as a springboard to create your own flexible coaching programme.
