About me

Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou

Since 'retiring' from principalship in April,  I have been enjoying the opportunity (and privilege) of working as a facilitator with the NAPP programme. I am based in Nelson and am currently working with primary aspiring principals in Christchurch, Mid Canterbury, Marlborough, Nelson, Tasman and the West Coast.

    Great question - I was about to ask!

    Hi Nick,
    Using the shared Inquiry pages effectively is an interesting part of our connectivity.

    The middle column of the page will contain the broad brush strokes of the Inquiry - including perhaps major events and actions, data, reporting type comment that sum up progress of the inquiry - that is why the reference in red to PLG's is there.
    The Journal - should be labelled something like - Reflections on learning about leadership - it should provide personalised comment - feelings about leadership and leadership action at the time of writing. In an ideal journal there could be 50 plus entries spread through the year - these entries should provide the owner with a useful record of how they have grown and developed their principal's disposition and learned about leading change processes.
    A way to start using the Journal could be to use questions to trigger reflective comment - e.g. What did it feel like sharing/consulting with the principal and other staff about my inquiry plan?
    What leadership actions have I taken so far and what was I thinking as I made them?

    Hope these are useful suggestions.
