WAT Launches Talent and Leadership Development Programme

Woodard Academies Trust have just launched their 18 month Talent and Leadership Development Programme with a two day residential event. A wonderful group of talented people already in middle or third tier leadership roles who are seeking to grow and develop with a view to taking on senior leadership roles within our Trust in the future. We broke the ice with various questions including - if you were an animal or bird - what would you be and why? This was followed by exploring the Trust's Vision and strategic plan. Day two focused on personal resilience and the launch of a personalised coaching programme for each member of the group.

Such energy, enthusiasm and commitment in the room - it is hugely rewarding to get this programme underway and I am excited about the development of our talent pipeline.
