A conversation with Nic Vidot, former school Principal

Nic Vidot

Introduced by Carey Glass

Nic Vidot is a humble leader and a great story-teller. From his belief in continuous improvement, he describes stories of using SF to make life even better in the secondary school he led.

SF became just way the school did things, and they used it in many situations, e.g.:

  • Working with 100 student leaders, whom Nic met twice in each school term
  • Asking questions in assembly
  • Changing how teachers and students interacted in the school grounds
  • When working with the parents of pupils or enacting change with the school’s leadership team

In this audio, Nic verbalises his belief in Solution Focus as a leadership tool.
