Maximise productivity and outcomes through organisational structure and working environment insights.

About this Event

The Neuroscience of Successful School Leadership

This day will be for senior leaders in education and will centre around using insights from psychology and neuroscience to inform organisational structure and to create a working environment in which teachers can flourish and maximise productivity and outcomes. Some themes throughout the day include

- Effective stress management in schools

- Prioritising workload for staff (balancing numerous competing demands)

- Building in time to reflect and consider strategy

Do you understand how to motivate and/or manage staff but are not so sure how to do this for your pupils or that managing and motivating pupils is easy but this is harder for staff?

Do you find getting completing the tasks of leadership easier than managing people or enjoy the people management side of leadership but find developing strategy harder?

Do you have high levels of stress in your school that you would like to manage better?

Are your staff able to tell you when things are going wrong so that you can help to improve these or is there a climate of fear in the school?

Do you know how to give great feedback to staff and pupils which helps to motivate them to go beyond their own beliefs in themselves?

Do you understand how to manage difficult people in the school environment?

If any of these questions resonate for you, then this course will help you to develop new skills to address these challenges.

Whether you work in services, industry, health or education, ensuring that leaders have developed the skills to drive performance in their organisation is important. While leadership development courses are common in some organisations these are less common in education. And courses that are designed to lead adults might not be completely transferrable to leading a combination of adults, adolescents and children.

Recent research in neuroscience from the fields of leadership, developmental psychology and education is providing important evidence for what might work in leading diverse age groups. Professor Patricia Riddell has, therefore, combined her expertise in development, neuroscience and organisational psychology to create a course for school leadership schools. The course will be highly interactive, introducing new concepts, showing how these can be applied directly in a school environment, and providing an opportunity to try out these new ideas with fellow participants. Areas covered will include:

• Creating psychologically safe environments

• Intrinsic and extrinsic motivation

• The developing brain

• Neuroscience of leadership and followership

• How to manage disruptive people through great feedback

• How to reduce stress and increase resilience

The course will provide opportunities to network with other school leaders and to develop and share best practice within the group. Leaders should expect to leave with a tool box of new tips and techniques designed to improve their leadership abilities which they can try out immediately back in their own school environment.
