PiXL Pearls Podcasts by Sir John Rowling

Play now on:

Sir John Rowling is the Founder-Director of PiXL, an organisation of 3000 schools operating together to raise standards and equip leaders in our education system. The Leadership Pearls  draws on his 50 plus years' experience in education to explore different elements of what it is to be a leader and how we can become even better leaders. The Pearls are here to inspire and encourage, motivate and challenge so that we can have an even greater impact. They might also help you feel strengthened in your own leadership wherever you are.

The Pearl podcasts will be released every fortnight, they are for anyone, not just PiXL schools.  Our aim is help people understand who we are and what we stand for and the importance we place on helping people feel valued, loved, encouraged, equipped (VLEE from Goodhart’s work).

We hope that these Pearls podcasts will enable people to take 10 minutes out of busy schedules to reflect and be inspired. People may listen to them on the commute into work or on the way back from a tough day - either way, we hope that people leave them feeling energised and inspired.

The PiXL podcasts are available on a wide range of platforms including: 


Latest episode: How do you Measure Yourself?


What we measure, informs a lot of our decisions and that’s why it’s so important to measure the right things. So how do you measure yourself? I aim to measure myself by those who measure themselves by me. This podcast will share some thoughts on how to know if people measure themselves by you.
