This is an invitation to all Schools Leaders in Victoria to participate in an exclusive The Flourish Movement group. Places are limited to the first 30 School Leaders that register.
We started working on The Flourish Movement in 2016. Since then, we have worked with hundreds of school leaders across the country. Our research shows that this is one of the most complex, challenging and daunting roles we have come across in 25 years of research.
The only way that school leaders withstand this role is that they have incredibly high levels of resilience, commitment, and optimism. This is beyond a vocation for them. However, this comes at a cost to their mental health, wellbeing and their personal life.
Being a School Leader is not for the faint hearted. The job has evolved significantly. It has become more demanding, more broad and more complex than ever before.
What our research has found School Leaders have in common is they have a suit of armour that they pull on each day to go to work. Wearing the armour comes at a cost. The most significant is the impact on their personal lives. They lack work family balance and the stress of the day comes home with them. It also has a huge impact on their health, with many of them suffering significant health issues that can be related to stress. Finally, their passion for the job is being eroded. The high levels of reporting and compliance take them further from the joy of focusing on education and making the school a better place to work and attend.
The Flourish Movement is a place where you can take off the armour, sit with your colleagues to share authentic and real conversations, and be supported with effective research evidenced strategies. The program is aligned with the recommendations from ‘The Australian Principal Occupational Health, Safety and Wellbeing Survey’ and is proven to have a positive impact on your health and wellbeing.
