If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.—John Quincy Adams

Running a Head Start Association means juggling the needs of children, parents and staff as well as the myriad of tasks needed to operate any business organization. Meanwhile, Head Start agencies are experiencing enormous stress and additional uncertainty due to re-competition, budget restrictions and increased poverty in families. This workshop will give you super powers—how to achieve the extraordinary while overcoming the overwhelming.

A deep-dive program that requires homework completed ahead of time, The Leadership Challenge for Head Start Managers and Directors is based upon The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership, developed by Jim Kouzes and Berry Posner. Their Leadership Challenge Model is the most recognized standard of leadership excellence. In demystifying the leadership concept and presenting it as a set of learnable behaviors, Kouzes and Posner will show how leadership development is self-development: It takes practice—and is both an aspiration and a choice.

Among the features of this leadership training:

  • A series of creative learning activities and exercises to develop the 10 commitments and the 30 behaviors of The Leadership Challenge Model.
  • Pre-event homework involving a Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI): Participants will complete a short survey online and will also choose approximately 10 people to complete the LPI so as to receive feedback on their leadership behaviors.
  • Attendance by a mixture of professionals executive directors, deputy directors, content specialists education specialists, community partners and other emerging leaders benefit from the training and enhance its experience. (Material used is not Head Start-driven.)
  • As a highly individual personal development opportunity, discoveries made during the training also apply to participants’ daily lives to improve workplace productivity and relationships.

All children, regardless of their circumstance at birth, deserve a full and prosperous life.
