Adam readily engages his audience with a relaxed, professional style of delivery which has encouraged them to be actively engaged in the conversation and to feel sufficiently comfortable to ask questions from the most simple to the most complex. He has the ability to weave together pertinent , focussed and relevant information with anecdotal material all delivered in 'user friendly  language' with a touch of humour. I recommend him unreservedly."

Adam Voigt's Biography

Having achieved Principal ship at the age of 35, Adam Voigt is a strong and passionate educator. His work has seen him lead programs for disadvantaged families, manage Behaviour and Wellbeing methods and lead the improvement of communication between teachers to aid a strong bond for system demands.  

Adam can help your organization or school to lift its eyes from the problems and see the possibilities.  His presentations, workshops, mentoring and training programs are both inspiring and meaningful – he pumps up your tyres and gives you the roadmap to a better working and leading experience!  

Above all, Adam is a passionate and lifelong educator.  His mission is to help as many learning focused organizations as possible move from A to any desired B in record time.  And for these improvements to stick!

 Adam has worked with some of the most disadvantaged families and communities in Australia – with real success.  Adam has managed Behaviour & Wellbeing approaches across the Northern Territory and has spoken to thousands of teachers and leaders about forming a bond for improvement that system demands can’t break.   

So what is a great LEARNING CULTURE?
Culture can be an obscure topic that occupies a great deal of conversation space - but is still perhaps rarely defined.  In very broad terms, school culture is the intersection between effective leadership and effective behaviour management.  Edu-neering a great school culture can be done ... with the right models, attitudes and plans.  Each school's path to a great culture is unique, making the edu-neering a tricky job - but Adam is there to walk you, your leaders, your students, your colleagues and your community side-by-side to your desired destination.  

... and unpacking that just a bit further: Adam believes that teaching and learning is a tough job these days, particularly when leaders and teachers are charged with getting the job done in the eye of the tornado that is educational reform - at both local and global levels.  

The business and political imperative these days for school leaders is in meeting some very high end systemic demands … but also valuing staff, nurturing tomorrow’s leaders and following a moral imperative that we all know is there. Adam helps teachers and all other learning leaders with this very task.    

Schools, trainers and organizations who simply wish to effect improvement through better learning and performance are being hammered about by incessant accountabilities – data, staff turnover, being all things to all people, being the panacea for all of society’s ills.  

Adam believes that schools and other learning organizations are still fantastic, wondrous and even magical places.  Albert Einstein said “It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education”.  Adam agrees wholeheartedly and he believes that the miracle is in the relationships that teachers and leaders foster every single day – often in some of the most complex and testing environments imaginable.  

But what’s next?  How do we simplify the accountability?  How do we plan for improvement in the areas that really matter, when systems often tell us that contradictory outcomes should be the imperative?  Adam believes there is a way.  Let’s ask the educators what’s REALLY going on and let’s see if we can’t change the conditions in which they work.
