Due to the ever-increasing demands of the Headship, Head Teachers are leaving the schools in record numbers. Both primary and secondary heads claim their average workweek is between 80-90 hours. To complicate matters, the current emphasis in university, induction, and training programmes for headteachers is on leadership - instructional, curricular, ethical, etc. Lost in this focus are the day-to-day demands that often make managing one's time as challenging as leading a school. Making Time to Lead provides timesaving tips, strategies, and practical ideas that will help headteachers better manage themselves, their office, and ultimately their school. The book will be divided into topical chapters: getting organized, creating a calendar, communicating with stakeholders, delegating responsibilities, planning through the summer, maintaining the personal touch, taking care of oneself.
