Helping School Leaders Flourish, Not Just Cope

What we do

The Flourish Movement specialises in improving the wellbeing and effectiveness of school leaders and their staff. It is a movement that was started by educators, co-designed with educators and driven by our passion to support an amazing group of people who do a vitally important job.

Designed by School Leaders for School Leaders

This movement was started when Bob Willetts an inspiring and proactive principal from Berry Public School, engaged Dr Adam Fraser to use his research and IP to build The Flourish Movement. The first Flourish group was conducted on the South Coast of NSW. Bob and those principals helped fine tune the program to suit the needs of educators everywhere. Due to its customised nature Flourish has achieved amazing results.

 

Research Based

The Flourish Movement is built on research and science. It has generated one of the most comprehensive and detailed data sets on school leader wellbeing anywhere in the world. Our research approach involves surveys, 10-day diary studies and interviews conducted by our research partner Dr John Molineux (Senior lecturer Deakin University).

Individualisation/Customisation

One of the greatest features of the Flourish Movement is that each group participates in the research. This not only gives them amazing insights in their wellbeing, engagement and behaviours. It also allows us to customised the program for each group participating in it.

Months Changing Lives

“Our research shows the demands of the School Leader role require them to push themselves constantly to over work, to over commit and to feel guilty about taking time for themselves or their families. You could say in some ways School Leaders are too resilient, too devoted and too optimistic for their own good. We need to protect School Leaders not because they are weak but because they are too strong. This is what Flourish is all about. “

Testimonials

"Just wanted to extend a very big thank you for all of your support in getting our Flourish course up and running. So far our whole staff (including Admin team) have been trained in Module 1 and the feedback has been extremely positive. The staff have embraced the new learning by implementing small changes and sharing their success with others. It's early days of course, but we are off to a very positive start. Thank you for creating a high quality professional learning package and making it so accessible to all of us."

"I have started the school program and there is already significant improvements at the school. It just feels happier. I have been facilitating 2 groups. One for the teachers and one for admin and support staff. I think the admin and support staff have actually gained the most."

"It was a great way of improving staff relationships (specially getting to know your peers better) and, as a result, improving school climate and staff wellbeing. It’s also just nice to know that your principal (and even the department) values you as a whole person… not just as an employee! It can take you a long time to realise that something you are doing is not helpful (and could be quite destructive) to your personal wellbeing!"

"Overall the program gave my staff great tips for supporting their well-being. The suggestions on how to improve their performance at work through positive well being strategies and small changes was very empowering. Having completed the Principal workshops, presenting to my staff this program was a huge reflection for me to revisit strategies and ensure I was on track finding my true north and flourishing.
A great empowering program ... Thank you to Adam and the team"

"Great and simple information that makes sense but provides scaffolds to make little changes that make a difference in my work life balance.
I value the fact our Principal is giving time to look at ways and strategies to cater for our well being, it is a great opportunity."

"This program helps me to reflects my own habits. Such as using the mobile phone at bedtime, drinking coffee in the afternoon and not winding down before bed. I have started to work on correcting these habits although it's not that easy. I have learned quite a bit about my own wellbeing through this program."

"I wish I knew about the third space when I first started teaching. My kids have now left home and I feel that I was constantly in a bad mood and didn't show up well after a day of work. Generally I know the benefits of rest, sleep and exercise but I like how you supported it with scientific evidence and stressed how important all of these things are in our lives."

"This module has given me the inspiration to change some of my behaviours. I'm not fitting everything in at home, but I'm not as stressed about it either. I'm getting better sleep and I'm feeling healthier in general."
