Supporting new and emerging leaders
One person alone cannot lead an early childhood service. Leadership that is distributed throughout a service can provide the level of support necessary to build educator participation and commitment. However, leadership requires careful nurturing to develop and a director and positional leaders can play a significant role in building effective leadership throughout the service.
This session will explore:
- Leadership responsibilities of different leaders
- Inclusive leadership
- Leadership styles
- Scaffolding leadership
- Building confidence
- Leading professional conversations.
