Walking the Tightrope – Practical management Solutions for Nominated Supervisors


In this brand-new 4-hour workshop, we’ll explore how to effectively manage and lead your teaching team.

Join us in exploring the five key ingredients to growing, nurturing and leading engaged and high performing teams. We’ll explore how amazing managers can promote a culture of accountability in their service and hold Educators accountable for their tasks.

Miscommunication, gossip and alliances can destroy even the best service culture. We’ll uncover how you can help your team communicate better and celebrate each other’s success.

Finally, we’ll discuss how giving instructions kills motivation and how great managers use influence and respect to build high performing teams.

Throughout the workshop, we will explore common mistakes leaders make and you will hear funny stories about those who have tried and failed, as well as inspirational tales about those who have taken the challenge head-on and won!
