Soft Leadership Skills for Established Principals

No matter how long they have been in the role, great principals keep on fine-tuning their leadership skills. This program gives you the chance to refresh and develop your leadership through working with a professional leadership coach. You will start by reflecting on your leadership, discuss your insights with your coach and then co-create a coaching journey to meet your needs, typically drawing from two of the modules below. Your coaching sessions will help you both to widen your leadership skillset and to tackle immediate challenges you are facing.
