The Trust Revolution in Schools is based on Jeanie’s work and provides a comprehensive blueprint for schools to follow, drawing together four key psychological concepts, the book explores what a trust-based culture looks like in a school and the conditions needed for this to develop. It looks at the paradoxes that lie in how staff create harmonious and collaborative cultures and the practical steps needed to bring this to fruition.

How to create a humane, high performance and collaborative culture

Programme Details

Teachers are some of the kindest, most altruistic and smartest people on the planet yet despite the best of intentions, fearful atmospheres can arise organically within schools, leaving people feeling disempowered, anxious, isolated and frustrated. Why is this? What are the impacts? And, crucially, how do we resolve it?
