Steve Francis understands the challenges and demands of being a Principal. He has led a number of schools from a one-teacher school through to a large metropolitan school in Queensland and an international school in Hong Kong.
Steve is the author of four books including “First Semester CAN MAKE OR BREAK YOU”, “Time management for Teachers“, “A Gr8 life Live it Now!” and his latest book, co-written with Bruce Sullivan – “Attitude is Everything“.
Since returning to Australian in 2008, Steve works with educators to help them reach their potential. Working with a range of clients in the education and corporate arenas, Steve brings passion, energy and enthusiasm to his professional development programs.
Steve completed a Masters in School Leadership in 1995. His research on teacher stress led him to develop the Happy School program. Over 400 schools across Australia subscribe to receive Steve’s weekly Happy School articles and use them to boost staff morale and reduce teacher stress.
Steve has also developed the Survey My School and Survey My Class instruments to help school leaders drive school improvement.
Steve lives in Brisbane with his lovely wife Linda and two great teenagers, Sarah and Michael. He gets ‘stir crazy’ if he can’t exercise at least four times per week – playing tennis, squash, cycling, gym or golf. Steve is passionate about work – life satisfaction and keeping things simple.
