The We Lead Well Podcast
Where wellbeing matters
The wellbeing of staff in schools has never been more important. With almost a third of new staff leaving the profession after just five years and 26% of teachers saying they are thinking of leaving in the next 12 months (National Foundation for Educational Research), we are facing a teacher retention crisis. The We Lead Well Podcast has been created in response to this crisis, to encourage and support schools to create places where people love to work. We support leaders to enhance the wellbeing of all staff in schools. Each week, leading educationalists share their experience, views and tips on how other school leaders can promote wellbeing in their organisations for the benefit of all staff.
“Coaching done well may be the most effective intervention designed for human performance.”
“Coaching is unlocking a person's potential to maximise their own performance. It's helping them learn rather than teaching them.”
