The focus of this workshop is to share the key strategies that early childhood leaders need to create a school culture that is intentionally focused on the continuous growth and development of teachers. Our learning together will be centered around these fundamental questions school leaders are facing: How do I motivate and inspire teachers to grow and develop? How can I smoothly transition into a leadership style that focuses on expecting educators to remain current regarding the knowledge and practices that enhance program quality? How can I infuse positive energy into my professional development work? What are the most powerful and impactful ways to develop the capabilities of early childhood educators? We will explore how a Deliberately Developmental Organization (DDO) supports each individual's unique desire to reach their full potential. School leaders will leave this session energized! They will have new strategies, tools, and resources to support them as they make the changes needed to build professional accountability into their daily work with teachers.
