The authentic leader image
The four-part model to lead your school to success

Andrew’s new book, The Authentic Leader, presents a unique four-part model to help headteachers lead their school with purpose, authenticity, clarity, and vision. Based on the latest leadership research and 20 years of headship and CEO experience, The Authentic Leader will help heads to take back control of the agenda so that their core values drive everything they and others do. In essence, authentic leaders are balanced leaders.

Accompanied throughout by real-life examples from serving headteachers and CEOs, the pioneering 4C model of authentic leadership, will take headteachers on a journey that will empower them to:

  • Construct their own purpose, vision, values and beliefs
  • Connect with other people to build trust, relationships and motivation
  • Commit to bring about meaningful change, capacity-building, and growth
  • Create purposeful impact in their school and beyond that adds social value.

Above all, this innovative framework for leading change will enable authentic school leaders to create a culture where every child and every teacher can thrive and succeed.

All participants in the programme will receive a complimentary copy of the book in advance of commencement. Each of the leadership coaching sessions will focus on each of the themes within the 4C model.

"Successful school leadership starts and ends with you: who you are, what you believe in, and why you do the things you do."
