Could you find value in taking time to reflect and see the bigger picture? Maybe you have a keen interest in developing wellbeing within your school? Join us on a programme to uncover the wellbeing within you, to tune into your own leadership style and to learn ways to enhance the wellbeing of your entire school community.

Who is the Uncovering the Wellbeing Within programme for? 

This is a programme for anyone in a school leadership position: head teachers, deputies, senior and middle managers.

What is the Uncovering the Wellbeing Within programme?

The full-day workshops will be based upon an approach to wellbeing that recognises the value in understanding how the human experience is created. Known as the Three Principles or the Inside-Out Understanding, the foundation for the Uncovering the Wellbeing Within programme is a simple description of how our experience of life is created. This description points to the ever-present and universal energy of life and how our thoughts and experience is brought to life through our awareness. Connecting to this understanding can help you to see more of who you really are.

What can I expect from the Uncovering the Wellbeing Within programme?

The programme will encourage reflection, giving you the time to let your mind settle away from the immediate demands of the school environment. This bespoke programme will be built around the individuals taking part. Core themes will be explored throughout the programme and you can expect to cover the following:

  • What wellbeing means to you and looks like in the context of your own life and school
  • What does truly excellent leadership look like to you?
  • Where are you at on your own leadership journey? Perhaps considering the following questions (adapted from Integrity Coaching):
- Who am I as a leader and how do I embody my vision?
- What are my core values and what do they mean in practice?
- How honest am I with myself and others and how does this affect my leadership?
- What is my leadership mindset and how does this affect my interactions and leadership?
- How confident am I in my leadership role?
- How do I give myself time for deep and profound learning as a leader?
- Do I do things that stretch my comfort zone and what is my attitude towards this?
  • The difference it can make to know that you are complete and whole already and have within you everything you need to be the leader you want to be.
  • The Inside-Out understanding as a description of how our experience of life is created and how this can change how you see and connect to your own wellbeing.
  • What it means to connect to your own intuition and to allow this to guide you in your leadership and your life.

A message from Vicky:

“I’m really excited to be delivering this programme! I have a love for both wellbeing and the education system and working with leaders is an amazing way to facilitate lasting impact for schools. The Inside-Out understanding has been pivotal for me, enabling me to gain a greater sense of wellbeing and to make more heartfelt and courageous decisions in my own life and career. Sharing this with others makes total sense! Having worked as a primary teacher for six years before starting my own wellbeing business, Innate Connection, I have a natural enthusiasm for working within and for schools, for the benefit of the staff, children and wider school community. The main and most important factor for this programme is to give School Leaders the opportunity to listen deeply to themselves; something that will benefit them greatly in the important role they have in their schools.”
