Wellbeing Summer 2020

 

Welcome from the Editor

This Summer we are very much focused on supporting the health and wellbeing of all our member CEOs and COOs; people doing incredibly responsible and demanding jobs at a time of great uncertainty and pressure. Without healthy and well supported leaders, we cannot expect to have healthy teams or organisations that are well placed to serve. Alongside our dedicated Wellbeing Steering Group, which has been reporting into the DfE, our partners at Schools Advisory Service are providing our CEO members with a free ‘Wellbeing Hotline’ (staffed by a trained nursing team) right through June, July and August.

This Summer, we have decided to share a range of case studies, articles and information services to help you to reflect on ensuring your own wellbeing and that of your teams during this challenging time. We will be sharing a new article every week through until the end of July. My thanks to all the CEOs, partner organisations, and leading thinkers who have shared their ideas, practices and experiences for this edition. I hope you find it valuable.
