The Upward Spiral: Key Strategies to Ignite Passion and Transform Program Quality
Positive strength-based energy is the key to transforming the quality of educational programs. Discover the benefits of creating a vibrant, engaging, and strength-based learning environment in which all children and adults thrive. We will examine how focused, intentional, inspirational leadership can mitigate the stress of new initiatives and standards and provide new perspectives and possibilities. Through active engagement in reflective learning activities, you will gain new tools to provide effective staff supervision, observation, feedback and develop strategies for overcoming setbacks. You will also have the opportunity to build a resource kit to guide you on the rewarding path of inspirational leadership.

Inspiring Early Childhood Leadership: Strategies to Ignite Passion and Possibility
This full day workshop lays out strategies designed to support program leaders in finding new ways to reduce the levels of stress on themselves and their staff, and move into a unified, engaging system for leading with passion, intention, and purpose. Through interactive experiences, you will explore well-researched, inspirational and motivational leadership techniques, with a focus on strength-based communication, program transformation, positivity and systemic change. Participants will work together focusing on these vital questions: How can leaders
• motivate and inspire teachers?
• bring renewed energy, joy, engagement and intentionality into our learning communities?
• embrace and facilitate change?
• create healthy, dynamic workplace relationships in our respective contexts?
• reconnect to our own passion with a renewed sense of purpose in our work?
The fundamental goal of this workshop is to inspire and guide leaders to move past their current challenges toward a vision of new possibilities, leave refreshed, recharged, and ready to facilitate positive change in their daily work and learning communities.
