"Leading from the Middle"

Too often people are in positions of leadership who have limited experience in the complexities of leading people…and in particular, leading people through change.

In education, I see this within both the CoL structure and Team Leader roles. Expert teachers are placed in positions of across or within-school CoL lead-teachers or Team Leader roles and are expected to support teachers to develop their practice without learning HOW.

It’s time to support your middle leaders!

Levelled-Up Leadership.
An online mastermind group for leadership professionals.

As leaders, your jobs are both exciting and challenging. No day is the same. You are strategist, communicator, administrator, culture-builder, financier, counsellor, and the list goes on. This is demanding and can, at times, challenge your own internal calibration. Your people need you to lead in these times of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity with an unshakeable sense of self and presence, to be both soft and strong in your approach. To engender trust and build a team that thrives.

Leading can also be HARD!

You can feel alone, you have to maintain professionalism, yet at times you just want to be able to speak confidentially with others who ‘get-it’.

Maybe you are yearning for deep dialogue with other thought-leaders, to be challenged in a way that leaves you energy-filled, rather than depleted.

Perhaps you also want to learn or fine-tune some of your skills in a safe space within a supportive, confidential environment.

I get it. I’ve been there. This is for YOU…
