In this episode, I speak with a wonderful friend of mine, Cheryl Lacey, who’s an educationalist, entrepreneur, Rotarian and writer.
Cheryl works with schools and businesses, specialising in literacy, pedagogy, strategic planning and professional learning diagnostics.
At her first teaching role in a small country town in Australia, Cheryl learned that teacher training didn’t equip her to manage a whole range of complex issues that impacted on her ability to nurture the ongoing development of her students.
In this episode we speak about the importance of open and transparent processes so that school boards and councils are aware of what’s really taking place in the classroom and beyond.
Cheryl talks about how every board member needs to ask insightful questions and not just put blind faith in ‘subject-matter experts’.
We explore how trusting your gut and intuition can ensure accountability to ourselves, the rest of the board and our stakeholders.
