 Leadership Learning Plans

Posted on Updated on

As a leader, we understand you spend your day wearing many different hats in the workplace.

Sometimes it can be challenging to choose the right professional development opportunities for you and your team. To help save you time in trying to analyse the development teams of you and/or your team, we have developed the Leadership Learning Plans.

These cards are designed to help you understand the skills and development needs of certain roles. We have also included some suggested some Farran Street Education programs which assist you in forging the right path for you or your team members.

Over the coming weeks, we will be releasing these Leadership Learning Plans and encourage you to take them back to your team to discuss!

Time management is an essential management skill for any Teacher, Nominated Supervisor or Co-ordinator.  Being time poor is perhaps the biggest hurdle in being an effective manager in an early childhood education and care setting. So many people say “If I didn’t get so many interruptions, I might actually be able to get something done!”

Without good time management skills, you’re left dealing with only the most urgent issues with no time to plan, review or reflect. Trapped in a never-ending cycle of urgent tasks you remain paralysed unable to lead and manage effectively.

The quiz below will help you to understand how effectively you manage your time.

Last month we published “10 Amazing Ways To Motivate Your Team.” The idea that received the most feedback was “Eye Spy Quality Interactions.” If you missed it, here is it again.

____

Eye Spy Quality Interactions

Grab a GoPro or digital camera and set it to take images of the outdoor area every 30 seconds. Print the images or bring them up on a screen and get educators to review the images and discuss where they see quality interactions or missed opportunities. Create an amazing discussion about how you can create quality interactions in the outdoor area.

___

We received hundreds of emails letting us know how excited everyone was with the new tools to motivate their team.

However, there was one problem. Many services couldn’t afford a GoPro. So this month we’re making things right!

We have 2 GoPro’s to give away! (Valued at over $400 each)  You can win one for your service. 

All you have to do is complete your details to win. Winners announced on 1st July.

Congratulations to Guardian Early Learning Centre – Newstead and Kogil Street Pre School for winning our “Eye Spy Quality Interactions” competition. Your GoPro is on its way!
