  • VAT not charged to schools | Pay via invoice at checkout

About this two hour training webinar:

As leaders, we are regularly faced with handling difficult conversations with our teams. Failing to get the best out of these situations can lead to discord and a lack of true engagement from staff members. If they’re not happy, are they as productive as you need them to be? If that’s the case, are you offering the leadership expected of you?

From September, 2019, after a period of consultation, the new Ofsted Inspection Framework will come into force. One of the most important changes is the addition of criteria setting out the responsibilities of leadership in managing teacher workload and wellbeing. This is set out in the ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ descriptors in the Leadership and Management section of the Inspection Handbook.

This webinar from the School Mental Health Group helps you to understand how you can handle difficult conversations with your staff and strategies you can implement to ensure a happily more committed staff which in turn helps you meet the new Ofsted requirements. If your school follows the advice contained in the webinar, you will not only find handling these conversations less stressful for yourself, but also help to grow commitment and engagement in your team through your leadership actions.

Our message is simple: If you want to create a culture of wellbeing and achievement, it starts by understanding and potentially changing behaviour and specifically yours.

Throughout the webinar we will be answering questions submitted by you. Please use the form provided (click button below) to send your questions through. Any unanswered questions will be responded to after the webinar directly by Graham.

“Leadership is a process by which a person influences others to accomplish an objective and directs the organisation in a way that makes it more cohesive and coherent. Leaders carry out this process by applying their leadership attributes, such as beliefs, values, ethics, character, knowledge, and skills.” (Donald Clark, www.nwlink.com, 1997).

Everything starts with behaviours. By better understanding how we behave in given situations and understanding, in turn, how those around us behave, we can tailor our approach to maximise success.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the cost of failing to handle difficult conversations with our staff and the short medium and long term impact on wellbeing, efficiency and engagement. This will establish our mindset for positive change.

We’ll provide you with a simple yet highly effective way of analysing your own behaviours and those of others as well so that you have the skillset to tackle these difficult conversations.

Finally, we’ll provide you with a great six step guide to handling difficult conversations as well as handy tips around using motivation and effective communication to achieve results. These will help you to build on your existing toolkit.
