Appreciative Leadership: Focusing on what’s right!

Friday | 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Positive strength-based energy is the key to transforming the quality of early childhood programs. The stress of new initiatives can drain the energy of educators, creating a school community where low levels of engagement become the norm. Focused, intentional and appreciative leadership will support the development of a vibrant learning community where children, teachers, and adults can thrive!
