AI Global is hosting the 2020 Education and Training Awards and I am delighted to announce that Withinsight Coaching and Training is up for the Innovation and Creativity Award.Note from the Managing Director, Antoinette Ross. It has been a rare privilege to be able to lead this small but perfectly formed consultancy through the last decade. I have learned a great deal and been enriched by the collaboration of every school and business that has chosen to partner with me. I have been touched by the extraordinary courage and willingness of my coaching clients to face their struggles and make brave life-changing decisions. I have had the honour of working in partnership with some deeply conscientious headteachers and teachers within the Scottish state school system. I have been amazed by their resourcefulness and the seriousness with which they take their duty of care. I will always have enormous admiration for every parent that has signed up to The Mindful Parent course. I know of no other area that brings up our shame, vulnerability and courage like parenting. I also want to take this opportunity to thank Lorna McGregor for her unwavering service to our clients and to me. As has already been mentioned, there are very few who I would trust to deliver Withinsight’s training programmes to my exacting standards, but Lorna is one of them. She is brave, funny and enormously kind. Her thirst for learning matches my own. I have been able to indulge my love of learning new and exciting evidence-based scientific research and bring it back to my clients and business partners. I cannot imagine any other career or role so suited to my skill set and strengths and I feel enormous gratitude and appreciation for all the opportunities that have arisen as a result. At this moment, as a business, we face our greatest challenge yet in the face of Corvid 19. We are in day 1 lockdown as I write this. This situation scores very high on the Richter scale of Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. It is the strongest challenge yet to our leaders and it strengthens my resolve that a revolution is required to oust out leaders that dispense fear and division and replace them with brave leaders who will protect the vulnerable and share the message that we are all in this together and together we will get through this.
