Essential Tips for Promoting Women into Leadership
“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious!” ~ Albert Einstein
Talent is debatable! What is not, is the hours and hours of investment it takes to be good at what you are passionate about. If that is becoming a great leader, then it takes grit and determination! But quite often what prevents us from pursuing that leadership pathway is the nagging doubt of fear chattering in our heads. Those concerns over increased responsibility, competency, judgement and fear of not meeting the standards are the internal barriers we create that prevent us from reaching our leadership goals.
The interesting fact about fear is that it is a useful barometer of what we need to do in order to improve. Creating a framework within a school where staff are allowed to passionately pursue their interests is the basis by which ideas can flourish and talent can be nurtured. Jill Berry, former Headteacher has first-hand experience of what it takes to nurture talent in a school and in particular understands what is necessary to support aspiring women into leadership roles.
