How Compassionate Leadership Enables Schools to Thrive
Leading with Love reveals how focusing on relationships, wellbeing and core moral and ethical values can transform the motivation and engagement of teachers, parents and pupils, increasing their overall happiness as well as academic standards.
In each chapter Victoria Carr presents accessible and relatable personal life lessons, leadership observations and anecdotes, drawing on her leadership experiences in a wide range of schools to show how leading with integrity is possible for all. Her methods are simple and authentic and have transformed failing schools into thriving ones, improving whole-school systems, the culture of staff and pupil wellbeing and mental health, and standards.
Full of practical tips and end of chapter summaries with further suggested reading, Leading with Love will appeal to anyone who has suffered from imposter syndrome, who thinks they are not good enough to succeed, who thinks they are too old or don’t have the right background.
With a Foreword from Paul Garvey, this is essential reading for all school leaders and aspiring school leaders.
