In this episode, I’m sharing the line management framework I recommend to SBLs, Heads and CEOs. 

Not sure how often you should meet with your staff? 

Want to improve communication with your team? 

Trying to build up to a difficult conversation? 

This episode has the answers!

The episode at a glance:

[0:45] – I talk about how to create safe, informative meetings with staff that avoid too much formality but still feel structured and professional.

[3:36] – I describe some of the situations that would require you to adjust your management style and how to do so effectively.


This framework has been tried and tested by me and other school leaders, but you will need to tweak it to your particular staff needs and context. I hope you found this useful and know that you are not the only one who struggles with difficult conversations. If you’re dealing with a difficult situation and want some extra guidance, get in touch and we can talk about it together!
