Training/Event Description:

This online module looks at leadership as a way of thinking about your role and the important work you do on behalf of children and families. You’ll learn about the importance of self-awareness and understanding your core values as you identify your unique leadership style. You’ll be introduced to a model of facilitative leadership as a way to empower staff and support shared decision making at your center. And you’ll learn how to apply the principles of effective leadership to create a compelling vision for your program, become an agent of change, walk the talk of ethical behavior, and embrace the paradoxes inherent in your role.  View module outline.
