Evidence Says! Webinar Series – Program Leadership

January 20, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In this follow-up session, we will discuss the multifaceted roles and responsibilities of ECE leaders. We will unpack three primary aspects of comprehensive leadership: operational, relational, and pedagogical. Together, we will think about the knowledge, skills, dispositions, and resources that a leader needs to be successful. We will discuss practical, evidence-based strategies for reflection and goal-setting to improve your leadership, empower your team, and maximize the quality of services and supports that children and families experience.
