What makes an effective leader?

In simple terms, leadership is about deciding upon a destination, providing a bus and selling tickets.  Wise leaders (prefects, house captains) ensure other people (pupils, peers) want to go on the right bus (compelling vision) to the correct destination (virtuous objective) with sufficient money (resources) to pay for the fare. Everything that happens on the bus is management.  Learning to lead is a journey - so jump on the bus as early as possible.

Programme Benefits:

  • Developing more flexible behaviours to enhance communication effectiveness. 
  • Make better decisions more quickly.
  • Improve your ability to lead others and solve problems effectively.
  • Value the contribution of others more effectively.
  • Understand the power of listening in order to lead effectively.
  • Develop more effective and broader relationships.
  • Gain confidence through having choices in managing conflict.
  • Develop a prefect’s action plan.
  • Fulfil your potential by focusing on performance during exams, not nerves.

Overcoming Exam Nerves

We recognise that all people learn differently, and that some are better at exams than others.  Anxiety leads to sub-optimal performance, because people cannot think straight under stress, or get into "blind" panic and so their overall results do not reflect their real ability.

We have introduced a new programme, under licence from Remarkable Performance, with whom we work closely, to deliver differentiated programmes to overcome exam nerves. The programme is available NOW.

The schools' programme lasts a double period, and we work to the school's timetable wherever possible.  The programme consists of:

  • A facilitated session in a classroom where pupils learn about the origin of fear, and the role that imagination plays in developing "fears". 
  • Introducing 5 techniques for overcoming exam nerves.
  • An extensive handbook, providing more background information, and detailed instructions on the techniques, which range from dietary improvements, use of music, breathing and others.
  • Access to the Fear website for more information.
  • Access to an email address for further enquiries.

A separate programme for staff may also be programmed to provide them with the skills to reinforce the learning by their pupils.

The programme for universities lasts one day which permits more in-depth consideration of fear, fear triggers and techniques.  Individual fears are addressed.   Students are also provided with a similar support package as those in schools.
