In schools, teachers are constantly performing an act of “emotional artistry”, constantly checking and managing their own emotions and seeking to understand the emotions of the children in their charge.
So, it follows that the leadership framework in schools needs to have emotion and sensitivity to emotion at its centre.
That’s why Libby Nicholas, managing director of Dukes Education and former CEO and founder of the Astrea Multi-Academy Trust, has chosen to discuss “leadership with heart” on this latest episode of The Russell Speirs and Friends podcast.
Libby explains how “leading with heart” is integral to the culture and success of Dukes, a leading group of UK and international schools across 70 settings.
To find out more about what “leading with heart” means in practice and a little more about Libby’s impressive career in state and independent education, listen to this, the fifth episode in our series.
