“Kinetic comes from the Greek word kinētikos, meaning ‘of motion’, which in turn traces to the verb kinein, meaning ‘to move’.” Merriam Webster
As Grace Foundation continues to expand, we want to create a pathway for those who are interested in exploring becoming a future Ethos Leader. Kinetic is an aspiring Ethos Leaders programme that is available for staff from across the organisation. Kinetic is two day programme and will take place at The Gate. The first day will be in the Spring Term and the second day in the Summer Term. The day will start at 9.30am and finish at 4.30pm and will include lunch. It is important to note that there is no guarantee of any future employment as an Ethos Leader and involvement in the programme and requires Line Managers approval.
Morning Session – The 3 C’s
In this session we will introduce the programme and will focus on character, competence and chemistry.
Afternoon Session – Discovering your leadership style
In this session we will explore 10 leadership styles, discover which style best describes you and how we can cultivate our leadership style.
The Ultimate Ethos Leader
During the day we will look at some of the specific qualities and skills required to be an Ethos Leader. We will look at some of the delights and challenges of becoming at Ethos Leader. At the end of the course there will be a leadership challenge.
If you would like someone on your team to take part in Kinetic please ask them to apply by filling in the form below and confirming line management approval, suitability and authorising time out of school. Final sign off will also be required from Matt Brown (Appendix 1). Attendance on both days is essential and must be made a priority. There may also be some extra reading outside of the sessions. CLOSING DATE IS 30TH NOVEMBER 2023.
“The training was a brilliant blend of engaging activities that reinforced the core learning and reflection / space to consider the application of all we were learning, in our current and potential future roles within Grace Foundation. The pace was good, with lots packed in, without it feeling rushed or overwhelming. Matt’s delivery style is warm and engaging and creates a space for learning solid content and also reflecting on the learning journey and it’s application after the course finishes.”
“This training has been immensely helpful in helping me plan next steps!”
“Yet again, some fantastic training which will continue to allow me to grow and prosper within Grace Foundation. Thank you!”
