It's a struggle to recruit and retain leaders in many organisations and the lack of leadership skills means that we are finding it harder and harder to fill headships. The challenge of course is that leadership demands a very different set of skills to management so the really strong and highly effective managers don't have the skills needed to lead, shape and drive culture and practice.

So what are the skills and attributes leaders need?
  • Vision and focus on excellence 
  • Values, honesty and integrity 
  • Ability to delegate 
  • Communication and listening skills 
  • Sense of humour 
  • Confidence, persistence and resilience 
  • Commitment and passion 
  • People management skills 
  • Empathy and emotional intelligence 
  • Positive and optimistic attitude 
  • Creativity and innovation 
  • Problem solving skills 
  • Ability to inspire and motivate others
