After working with hundreds of school leaders, a common frustration I hear is that some of their staff seem anything from “passive” to downright “resistant” when it comes to CPD.
Leaders can often feel like they are offering all sorts of opportunities and inputs but only get complaints in return. Or else they receive very little reaction and watch the impact rapidly fizzle.
Luckily, experience suggests that not only is this issue addressable, but it can lead to a school which is buzzing with energy, with staff really enjoying and engaging with the development on offer. This leaves school leaders feeling much more free – more like strategists and guides to learning that staff are proactively and enthusiastically driving, rather than feeling like they are relentlessly fighting an uphill battle.
