Agenda Item 31 - Sorry, not Sorry but Spring has Sprung | #TheGovernorsPodcast
Show Notes

For today's Single Item Agenda (episode) we discuss;

  • The change in intensity throughout the academic year - Are you always crawling or counting down to the next school holidays?
  • How to better understand ‘Apologies’ for meetings - and learning not to feel guilty if you need to say ‘No’ or take a step away
  • Balancing commitments and priorities can feel like spinning plates
  • The significance of a thorough Induction process and how it supports retention strategies
  • Communicating with the Clerk to Governors or Governance Professional for your Governing Board

Thank you for tuning into our show. We appreciate you, our listeners.
