For this episode, we interview two experienced school leaders to get their insights and practical advice, looking at the hardest challenges of school leadership for those new to the role and tips to help you start off on the right foot.

We ask how school leaders can be visible in school and available while protecting their workload and work/life balance. We also ask how leaders can model good work/life balance and working practices, including delegation and distributed leadership.

And how can we lead from the front, and set ourselves up to- make good decisions and drive school improvement?

We consider how to have difficult conversations, dealing with conflict and tackling underperformance.
