We know authentic collaboration within our schools makes massive impact on students…. and yet creating a culture where everyone is open to learning together and shifting practice is tricky!
What are the elements of a staff learning culture that is curious, dynamic, and open to deep learning? A place with a buzz? These schools create strong, forward momentum for growth.
Tracey Ezard has been fascinated by schools that manage to create this culture for most of her teaching and leadership career. Her books ‘The Buzz’ and ‘Glue ‘ explore these cultures and their key elements.
In this session, Tracey and Adam will discuss:
- Why creating a psychologically safe team culture leads to better adult learning
- What authentic collaboration really looks like
- The key pillars of ‘The Buzz’ that leaders can focus on to improve collaborative culture
- Trust building as one of the first and most important jobs for a leader
This is a completely FREE 1-hour opportunity that you simply can’t miss.

“Our school uses the Real Schools webinars all the time. Not only do we encourage our staff to get involved each month, but we re-visit them as part of our strategic plans to meet our commitments to our wellbeing and engagement targets. Having them available in the Member Section of the Real Schools website means our staff can pick the webinars that they need and they can watch them when they want. It works perfectly for us.”
“The topics of the Real Schools webinars are so important. The art of teaching and the job of building a great school culture is a considerable challenge and our school takes that very seriously. Having a monthly support from a proven Principal targeting genuine need is of great benefit to us. We include the webinars in our improvement plans and the staff enjoy the engaging and practical approach to the webinar delivery.”
“The Real Schools webinars are always right on point. The combination of teacher focused topics and also leadership topics means that there’s something in each webinar for all of us. We are always accessing our people to the live webinars, but we also use them to address needs as they arise and to support our teachers to implement our plans. School culture is important to our school and the Real Schools webinars help us to keep this priority in sharp focus.”
