I want to apologise. There I’ve said it!
I realise, with deep shame, that it has been almost a year since I posted a blog on my site. I have had many good intentions over the months but, as anyone who has ever worked with me will testify to, I have never been great at multi-tasking. This is particularly true of writing projects and I have spent the last year working on my new book:
‘Ten Traits of Resilience: A guide for school leaders.’
The book sets out to explore some of the traits of leadership, that have helped the many school leaders, I have met and interviewed over the last few years, remain resilient, in often very challenging circumstances. It also provides some practical suggestions on how to develop each one of those traits.
I am delighted to be working again with Bloomsbury Publications on this book. The manuscript has been delivered (and on time, much to my amazement!). We are working on edits at the moment, but I am relieved to say, no major changes!
With a foreword by Dr Andy Cope (The Art of Being Brilliant), my new book is due to be published on October 4th 2018
It is now available to pre-order on Bloomsbury’s website:
at an early-bird discount of 10%.
You can pre-order on Amazon.
As for the blogging? As my secondary Physics teacher, Mr Doughty, once said in my school report.
‘James must try harder!’
Thanks for reading.
