Welcome to Messy Leadership,

If you’ve been a school leader, or just watched one at work, you’ll know leadership can be messy. Problems come in all shapes and sizes: so do solutions. There are no ‘one size fits all’ answers.

Messy Leadership training accepts this and works with it.

You have learnt skills in all areas of your life, not just at work – we help you bring those experiences together and apply them to your teaching and leadership work. You will become:

  • more resilient
  • more flexible
  • more creative

Get in touch to find out more or sign up to the Messy Leadership newsletter to get updates about new programmes.

I hope we’ll work together and learn from each other in the future!
