Workshop Overview
“Plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” Eisenhower and many others have said this. Strategy is what makes planning a daily activity, and with the right strategy, anyone in a school can take the right action, and take your school somewhere different.This workshop will help you walk away with the start of a plan that connects your role to your school’s strategy. Along the way, you’ll be challenged, tested and entertained in equal measure.

  • At the end of our session together you’ll be able to answer these key questions: 
  • What makes your school unique?
  • How does strategy help your school’s enrolment management program be proactive and creative?
  • How does strategy shape your school’s academic program so that it’s different from your competitor’s, at a time when most schools have similar curricula?
  • Do you know how to be a problem finder, and spot the opportunities in your school’s strategy?
  • Do you keep out of the operational weeds and see the wider community as creative partners to drive change and turn strategy into reality?
  • Does everyone from HR and Facilities, to Comms and the Classroom know how they can stimulate ambitious ideas and help maintain a clear direction for the school?
