Book of the Month-After the Adults Change Achievable Behaviour Nirvana

Jul 25, 2023

After his huge success with “When the Adults Change, Everything Changes”, which has transformed so many schools and teachers/leaders views, Paul’s follow up book goes further and examines the development of a school culture rooted in relational practice. The opening chapter, “Emotionally Consistent Teaching” sets the tone for the book and immediately establishes the importance of nurture, the right routines and how to lead it.

Stand out chapters are “Restorative Practice, Kindness and Soft Power” and “Scripting refined.” Both these chapter provide practical support and take aspects of Paul’s first book further. Throughout the book, the real life examples are relatable and support teachers and leaders to reflect on their own experiences and settings to consider ways forward and an evaluation of what is working.

The “nuggets” at the end of each chapter provide teachers/leaders with a really good overview of the key learning from the chapter and also support application within school.

“Behaviour nirvana comes when learning conversations dominate, when systems and people are kind, when teachers and pupils get heard and when consistency means every adult is emotionally available.”
