055: Vision: Why it matters which mountain you climb


In this episode, I use an analogy to explore the importance of cohesion and consistency when developing a strategy for your school. Many of the strategies you are presented with will have merit and potential but as the school leader, you must ensure that whatever strategy you choose to pursue has a clear vision, set of values and direction. I also discuss how a confused and inconsistent approach to strategy can leave prospective parents feeling unsure of what your school's values and priorities are, meaning they are less likely to choose your school. The key message I share is the importance of togetherness, engaging your whole school community to decide which strategy to employ and how you want to implement it. This episode uses a storytelling technique to help cut through the jargon and help you visualise the purpose of a strategy.
