TL Report

The three most challenging areas are

  • Stepping up to leadership
  • Managing team performance
  • Time management

Its interesting to see replicated in education the same issues that arise with new leaders in other organisations from call centres to retail. Whilst all organisations would like to perceive themselves as unique the issues they face are not and it would seem there is a growing recognition within the education sector that effective leadership at all levels will contribute to the success of students.

The paper suggests that the collegial nature of teaching makes stepping up to a senior position challenging. Whilst this may be true for teaching my own experience would suggest that the same is true in other organisations. I doubt that teaching is any more or less collegial that other roles and the amount of team building and team development i have been involved with over the years suggest that all organisations realise the value of effective personal and business relationships.

Direct Labour Leadership Case Study


It is clear from the Property Care experience that many companies can increase their productivity through improving their culture through leadership and harness the skills and talents of their people. By initiating change to improve both leaderships skills and employee engagement companies can focus on spending time on the right things beyond their daily problems and make decisions that position themselves better for the future rather than just reacting to external pressures.

By ensuring all areas of the business are aware of performance both operationally and personally a clear approach to development and change can be undertaken. Key drivers are a broad understanding of the business challenges and a vision for how they will be met. In many cases utilising the nascent talents through a more focused approach will ensure the organisations energy is aimed in the right direction.
