Beginners guide for New Directors and Managers


An excellent resource for new and aspiring directors, this webinar offers an overview of the key attributes and attitudes required to be an effective, transformative and focused leader. There is a difference between 'managing a group of people' and 'leading a team of collaborative educators'. We will take a brief look at some of the key skills and attributes needed for this role, including, how to develop a clear vision for quality, embedding the frameworks and regulations into everyday practices, supporting teams to achieve greatness, as well as developing meaningful partnerships with families.  We will also explore how to develop strategies for getting 'stuff' done. The director role can be overwhelming sometimes, but with a plan of approach in place, it can also be the most rewarding experience. Our aim is that you leave the webinar with a new vision for your leadership adventure. And clarity around your role and responsibilities.
