What is LEAD?
Lead is our new online coaching programme designed to challenge leaders and teachers to become the best they can be.
During LEAD, Gwenno Williams, our specialist coach, will challenge coachees to venture out of their comfort zone and expand professional opportunities, allowing them to make a positive impact on their life and the students and colleagues they interact with.

This unique and transformative programme will take place online and consists of 6 one-to-one sessions to be organised at a time and date that suits you. You can either:
  • Have the 6 sessions focused on one individual – yourself, your Head of Department, an NQT etc.
or
  • Split the 6 sessions out between 2 – 6 members of staff so they still can benefit from one-to-one coaching

Feedback from recent coaching:
From two Headteachers

“The training I received has been life-changing! It definitely helped me become more confident and I now have a much better work/life balance; Gwenno was extremely motivating and quickly helped improve my presentation skills, plus small things like posture and non-verbal communication. I received plenty of positive and constructive feedback from Gwenno, and the sessions were planned for evenings to fit in with my workload.” 
 

“The year before my coaching, I had applied for a headteacher role at a large school, closer to home - saving me 10 hours a week traveling - and in a better pay bracket, but wasn’t offered the job. A year later, I applied for the same role and entered the interview stage with more confidence and assurance and, thanks to my coaching with Gwenno, was offered the job.” 

Possible areas of support that Gwenno can cover:
No two people are the same
  • Maximising confidence and assertiveness
  • How to stand up to workplace bullies and having challenging conversations
  • Becoming a passionate and inspirational speaker
  • Identifying, protecting and developing those vulnerable teachers to their full potential
  • Tackling absences due to low morale
  • Help with understanding complex equality and diversity issues
  • Ensuring that teachers and schools do not unwittingly discriminate
