How to manage your team to succeed with Fiona Dunlop
8 January 2019


Managing a team of teachers is a challenging and hopefully rewarding experience. Our daily decisions have so many impacts on others and for this reason it is important to ensure that we are managing ourselves and our teams in the best possible way to obtain the full potential from everyone.

Our day will be divided into two connected parts. We will start by looking at our own bank of skills and needs as managers in an ever-changing industry. We will consider our own stress and time management when spinning so many plates at the same time on a daily basis. We shall pay particular attention to identifying and addressing our own CPD needs and how this trickles down to our team and leads to success within our organisations. We will also reflect on how we monitor our own welfare in the workplace so that our teams are getting the best from us.

We will then go on to look at how we manage our teams to succeed, how we provide support, manage, lead by example and provide the tools to allow individuals to perform to the best of their ability. We shall explore how to make our organisational values a part of the school DNA. How do we record this success and how do we know when success is on the turn? We will share experiences on how we manage under performance and look at real scenarios.

This workshop will provide the audience with tools and fresh ideas to implement into their busy lives as managers in order to enhance the academic quality of their organisations. There will also be ample opportunity to reflect and to share best practice with colleagues.
