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.
