“Working with Debbie has been wonderful! Even half-way through the programme of sessions I felt I’d already got my money’s worth. Debbie really listened to me. She gave me the time and space to air my thoughts and concerns without making a judgement about it all. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Debbie to other Heads. How often do we as Heads have this valuable quality 1-1 time for ourselves?

E. Thornhill, Headteacher (Derbyshire)

Does any of this resonate with you?

You feel frustrated at the lack of enery you have to focus on the strategic parts of your role

You spend more time managing, and less time leading … with little time for your own priorities

You struggle to say ‘no’ because you don’t want to let people down, resulting in taking on more than you should

You lack the forum to share your ideas, concerns and challenges without feeling judged or being compared to other leaders

You have demotivated or disaffected staff, whose engagement in minimal, but you know they are capable of more

You feel overwhelmed at times and wish you had more time to do things you love outside of work

Imagine if things could be different …

You spend quality time re-connecting with your vision, including finding creative ways to achieve the vision, solve problems, support staff, and more

You’re able to focus on your priorities and spend less time fire-fighting

You can say ‘no’ with confidence and without feeling guilty

You share your concerns in a confidential, non-judgemental  environment, with time to reflect and find practical solutions

You have a wider range of techniques for supporting and motivating your team, so they’re more engaged and productive, and happier in their role

You’ve created a work-life balance that you’re happy with, that’s flexible and sustainable

“Your questioning techniques are brilliant! You helped me focus on my target more positively.

You have a really lovely way, and you’re not judgemental. I found our recent session very helpful and supportive.”

S Beckett, Head Teacher, Christ Church CE Primary

“As a result of our work together I now feel I have a better relationship with staff. There’s a more productive and positive atmosphere, and I have gained a range of practical things to help improve communication with staff.

Debbie’s confidential one-to-one sessions with my leadership team have provided useful feedback, which helped us become a stronger and more effective SLT. I am now well on the way to achieving my longer-term goals!”

Chris Skeats, Headteacher (Nottingham)

Working with Debbie was a real pleasure. She was personable, interested and thoughtful when discussing features of my practice and personality.

We discussed my goals and came up with actions to reach them. Blockers were identified and overcome. It is amazing how Debbie guides you down the right path and uses emotionally intelligent, sensitive questioning to show you that you already have the answers.

Conor Heaven, Middle Leader (Essex)
