Director’s Leadership Academy 1

The Family Conservancy Director Leadership Academy was designed by the request of early education directors. It serves those who are currently a director, assistant director, other administrator or those who have a desire to be a director or leader in the field of early childhood. The Academy provides leadership skills training and focuses on ways to become a more effective leader to meet the needs of the program, as well as of the staff, children and families entrusted in their care. Class topics include: Communication, team building, ethics, leadership traits, behaviors/characteristics of working with adults, advocacy, mentoring, coping with change, budgets, supporting families, employment practices, and other leadership concerns. All programs will participate in a pre/post assessment using the Programs Administration Scale (PAS), will receive their own copies of the PAS book, and will use their pre-assessment results to set goals for the course of the project. In addition, each participant will receive virtual follow-up coaching during the project.

Because slots are limited for the Director’s Leadership Academy, it is very important that you commit to attending and engaging in the complete virtual series (10 sessions). We will together challenge each other to intentionally ‘make a difference’ using our time, talents and resources.

This session is currently full, but you can sign up for our waitlist and we’ll let you know about future opportunities.
