Being part of a Connected Heads group is designed to help you navigate through any school leadership challenge using the collective intelligence of others.Overview
Connected Heads is a group of between 4 and 6 school leaders, who meet regularly to support one another and to take purposeful action on current work issues. There’s a reason the old adage ‘two Heads are better than one’ has been around for centuries because more effective problem solving happens when you combine resources in talent, experience, knowledge and passion.
Connected Heads uses an Action Learning Set model which provides the opportunity for colleagues to collaborate and reflect on real challenges. The process is led by a facilitator, who enables the group to connect, ask searching questions and support the learning process with guidance and useful models and tools. In a Connected Heads group we do things differently, the learning shared is agenda free, trustworthy and confidential. The group creates its own innovative thinking space.
The group focuses on real work goals or challenges.
Common themes for the group are strategic thinking, managing stress & well-being, dealing with challenge, navigating change and teaching and learning development. The group provides a confidential and non-judgmental space to off-load challenges, discover solutions and develop leadership qualities.
There is a strength and depth in learning from listening your own and others’ experiences and reflections.Programme Lead
