“Be Well, Lead Well” Presentation Abstract

The role of a school principal is dynamic, fluid, and always under pressure. Constantly fielding challenges related to leading improvement in education, being accountable for staff, students, and meeting the expectations makes it difficult and at the same time critical for school leaders to maintain optimal mental health. Without key factors of mental health, leaders are unable to perform at their best and ultimately compromise the success of their organisation. We are living in a time where it is essential for school principals to exercise control of their own mental health, to show strength through embracing vulnerability, and thereby create spaces in which their teams can be psychologically safe and innovative. This session will focus on how school leaders can commit to managing their mental health and subsequently fulfil one of their integral roles of safeguarding the well-being of their schools creating healthier, more open and more successful school environments.
