“I have been involved in coaching with Sue since the beginning of this academic year. I am lucky enough to have an Executive Headteacher who felt that this would be a worthwhile experience and who committed to it.
I have had challenges with my emotional wellbeing more recently and the opportunity to take an hour out of my busy life to focus on me was more rewarding than I imagined. It provided a safe space and designated time to focus on my wellbeing, leadership and future. I had the opportunity to take the discussions in my own line of enquiry and pick topics to discuss. Sue poses questions to help you to reflect on your own self, leadership and certain situations you may find yourself in; she isn’t there to advise but rather help you to find your own way through challenges.
The experience so far has been hugely rewarding giving me things to consider in challenging situations, allowing me to be a more reflective practitioner and helping me to support my own staff in a similar way. I would hugely recommend this experience to anyone in leadership, it has definitely made me a better leader and have a more balanced life, giving me the tools to cope with challenges.”
