Leadership and management
Whether you are an experienced, beginning or an emerging leader the opportunity to connect with and engage in ongoing professional discussions with an experienced other is key to professional growth.
Leadership and management roles in education and care are complex and require knowledge not only of the legal requirements but also the practical implementation of all aspects of these in the day to day operations of an education and care service. In leadership and management you are also in a position of power and your own values, beliefs and practices will impact significantly on the culture of your setting. Your words and actions can inform, motivate and inspire your team to new heights or can leave your team scratching their heads and in need of direction. As a leader you need to remain grounded amidst the chaos.
If you would like to further develop your leadership skills or explore the management aspects of the day to day operations of your setting we are here to support you.
One on one mentoring and support is a powerful tool for learning and development. Individualised support is tailored to meet the individual's identified goals. These goals may have been identified by the individual or can be explored through a reflective discussion where the individuals strengths and goals will be determined and prioritised through a mutually agreed upon process.
Further strategies and supports will then be explored for the individual to continue on a journey of personal and professional growth.
Tailored Professional Development
Professional development can take many forms to ensure the content and delivery meets the needs and expectations of the teams and their settings.
