Webinar Summaries

Time Management For Nominated Supervisors - Friday 15th March 2019 @ 10:00am AEDT

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!"

In this 40 minute webinar we'll use the Eisenhower Matrix to separate urgentversus importantand explore how to plan to ensure the right person is doing the right job, at the right time. We'll look at time-saving tools to significantly improve communication with educators and families. These tools can save you literally hours each day.

Building Strong Leadership Teams - Friday 22nd March 2019 @ 10:00am AEDT

Have you ever found that you’re in charge of doing everything? Sustainability, accident reviews, parent complaints and even the event coordinator's role is on your to-do-list. It shouldn't be that way, it takes many great leaders to build an exemplary service. Services should aim for strong autonomous leadership teams.

In this 40 minute webinar we'll explore how, as a manager, you can empower teams of educators to independently shape tasks, share knowledge and embrace innovation. Strong leadership teams have a range of subject-matter experts who are specialists in their roles. Shared leadership is strong leadership.

It's a knockout - Resolving and Preventing Non-Functional Conflict - Friday 29th March 2019 @ 10:00am AEDT

Sometimes even the most harmonious teams struggle to cope with the stress and pressure of our fast-paced environment. This often leads to miscommunication and non-functional conflict, which can derail the entire team.

In this webinar we'll explore Roger Fisher and William Ury’s Interest-Based Relational (IBR) approach to resolving conflict. We'll unpack strategies to help separate people from the problem, learn how to establish a workable plan and discover how managers can mentor educators to achieve long-term productive relationships. "An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind." – Mahatma Gandhi

Building Trust in EC Teams - Friday 5th April 2019 @ 10:00am AEDT

A team without trust isn’t really a team: it’s just a collection of staff working together—like parallel play, but for adults. A group working like this will often make disappointing progress. They don’t share information. They battle over responsibilities and authority. It doesn’t matter how capable or talented your people are, they may never reach their full potential if there’s no glue to bind them together.

In this 40 minute webinar we'll explore how trust can help teams become stronger, more purposeful and more cohesive. We'll unpack the ten trust behaviours needed for a high-performing team and discuss how you can promote these behaviours through your role as a manager and leader. When people trust each other, the team becomes stronger, more purposeful and more cohesive.

Eliminating Gossip and Promoting a Positive Culture - Friday 12th April 2019 @ 10:00am AEST

Just as you and I have personalities, teams have personalities too. Some teams are fun-loving, future-focused and open to change. Other teams are negative, stuck in the past and resistant to new ideas. The culture or personality of the team is often influenced or controlled by the manager or leader of the team.

In this 40 minute webinar we'll explore five key levers in creating and maintaining a positive service. By focusing on how we communicate, celebrate, make decisions, resolve conflicts and develop relationships we can create a culture that promotes high performance and a sense of belonging.
