We are delighted to announce the release of a new book, Building on Whole Leadership: Energizing and Strengthening Your Early Childhood Program, published by Gryphon House and released on October 1.
If you are an early childhood program leader, this book is for you. In a single day, you manage operations, build relationships with families, oversee teaching, and plan professional development.

How will you accomplish your goals while maintaining perspective and energy?
The Whole Leadership Framework, developed through the work of the McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership, introduces an integrated and holistic way to revitalize the work of early childhood leaders. The Whole Leadership Framework offers an opportunity for you to refresh your sense of purpose, energize your practice, and focus on the most important ingredients of leadership success.
In this book, you will find useful tools and resources to help you balance your priorities and effectively lead your program. The framework will help you develop a cohesive, sustainable, and vibrant organization. Building on Whole Leadership is a practical guide to empower leadership and revitalize program staff collaboration, creativity, and effectiveness.
