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

  • How environments can influence how you show up - The significance of preparing for meetings to avoid awkward silences
  • Navigating different personalities and delivery styles when communicating 
  • What are your barriers to success and/or progression? Suggestions and considerations for all in school governance - Be honest. Conduct meetings in favour of the governors and trustees. Claim travel expenses as appropriate. Do the best you can, with what you have.
  • How to tap into the resources in your networks, including organisations in the community, teachers in training, and the clerk / governance professional
