Wednesday 22 April - Wellbeing - Students and Staff Wellbeing for both students and staff was our topic of discussion...
Janine provided strategies and she made me think! I felt comfortable to discuss any aspect of my role with Janine. She challenged me to change my behaviour and to improve my work outcomes. She helped me see different perspectives and analyse things I did and thoughts I held. She encouraged me and supported me to work on areas of my work life that needed improvement.
This conference was different to any other conference I have been to. It promoted connection with other leaders, inspired me to ‘take control’ of my career, and offered me ideas as to how I can further my own understanding of my leadership style. It recognised my strengths, but also showed my areas of challenge, recognising the importance of understanding both and the impact they can have on the way I lead in a school environment.
I truly believe that The Leading Edge: Women in Education Conference had something to offer women at any stage of their leadership careers. The fantastic range of presenters generously shared valuable insights, experiences and advice, and I took away knowledge that will stay with me throughout my career. I would highly recommend the conference to anyone looking to grow both personally and professionally.
Janine’s coaching enabled me to reflect and talk about myself way more than I could have imagined. As a result, I have made some real progress setting and achieving important goals in relation to the way I work and the way I interact and relate to the people around me in my workplace.
I have learnt a number of strategies and new ways of thinking about the challenges of my role. It has been great to have the opportunity to sit down with an experienced school leader and discuss ideas and strategies in a time that would otherwise not be available. Janine has challenged my thinking and helped me develop.
I was lacking the ability to clarify my goals and to set realistic objectives before working with Janine. Janine has helped me to build my confidence and to assert myself in the workplace, as well as assisting me to put in place some clear strategies in order for me to move forward in my career.
Coaching has challenged and empowered me, expediting my development in my new leadership position. I have valued the direct and honest conversations that have required me to understand and clarify my vision, priorities and leadership style.
