This week I interviewed Gemma Drinkall who takes us through her experience of burnout as a middle leader. It's so important, as leaders, to get to know our staff, to understand them, so that we can notice when things are not right. In the episode, Gemma shares her personal experience of how teaching affected her mental health in the hope that by sharing what she went through, school leaders can develop their awareness of others so that they are able to empathise with staff and support their wellbeing in the workplace. Gemma came out of the other side of her burnout and is now a coach supporting teachers to achieve a better balance in their lives.
