This Journal, an updated and revised companion publication to Andy Buck's bestselling book Leadership Matters 3.0, will support you in your reflections, so that you can identify what is most useful for you in the context of your current role and situation.
As a school leader, your time is at a premium. That's why the Journal has been designed to be flexible, quick and easy to use. Just a few minutes spent thinking through the key questions on each topic will be time well spent when it comes to supporting your continued growth and development as a leader.
The Journal is broken down into a series of topics. Each topic summarises the key points from a section of the book or the videos and then gives you the opportunity to record your reflections on: what ideas, theories or models resonate in the context of your role; what steps you commit to take as a result; what you are going to do to ensure you make these changes happen; how you will review your success in implementing them.
