    Life is messy. And sometimes it gets out of balance.

    So when we feel we are a bit out of kilter how do we begin to tackle this in order to best bring our best selves into our leadership work?

    In this FSA conversation, Jen Buchanan and I chat about the 'humanness' we can bring to leadership.

    What if you were told that your own Ignorant Truths are getting in the way of your progress?

    What opportunities could exist if you owned your Ignorant Truth to collaborate, learn and connect more?

    And how do you feel about the need for Ferocious Warmth is leadership?

    In this podcast I discuss Ferocious Warmth Leadership with Janine Garner:
    - The duality of leadership
    - The need for Ferocious Warmth amongst our leaders
    - Creating the space for learning and unlocking the brilliance of others
    - How our own assumptions, our Ignorant Truth, gets in the way.

    I was honoured to be asked to speak on Ferocious Warmth at The Centre for Optimism in conversation with Victor Perton. We had a fabulous hour of discussion with people in Australia and the US on leaders who lift results AND relationships to extraordinary. We discussed infectious optimism and realist optimism. And being the Monday of a new extended lockdown here in Melbourne, the need to maintain selfcare to keep ourselves well, along with adaptability and learnability to find momentum in these days of challenge. Fabulous input and thinking from the inspirational people who came along to discuss these topics.

    I was privileged to speak at VID19 Conference in March 2020, a 19 day conference of speakers created by Julia Steel at the start of the COVID19 lockdown. It was an honour and a privilege to take part with over 120 speakers.

    I spoke on Ferocious Warmth leadership. Many of you know that I am currently writing the book of the same name, and have been delivering leadership programs that help leaders get the balance of the head and the heart right.

    Leading with Ferocious Warmth

    AEL Magazine. Issue 1, 2021

    It is no news to anyone reading that the year 2020 provided us
    with seemingly polar thoughts and feelings. This year, when asking educators how they were travelling, their words reflected both the challenges and the opportunities we faced. Exhausted yet elated, frazzled yet positive, weary yet energised. We’ve lived the experience of futurist Alvin Toffler’s famous approach: that the literate of tomorrow will be those who can learn, unlearn and relearn. This year has provided rich learning for both teachers and students in how education can be different and how quickly we can adapt to a new context.

    ACCESS Magazine. November 2019

    I was honoured to present the keynote at the ASLA 50th Anniversary National Conference in April 2019. Not only was the conference held in the magnificent National Library of Australia, the room was bursting with people full of energy and passion for the work that they do in school libraries all around Australia. There was indeed a ‘buzz’ in the room as we investigated the exciting possibilities that collaboration and co-creation gives to a school and the integral part library teams can play. My other thrill was presenting on an agenda with one of my favourite authors from my time in the classroom, Morris Gleitzman. I had a fan-girl moment!
