Will you survive your next monitoring visit? What will you need to fully implement the Head Start Performance Standards? What will each and every staff need to know and be able to do that they are not doing now? When the Office of Head Start says “birth to five programming” and “redesign” or “local flexibility” what does this mean and how does it impact the federal monitoring system that’s currently being overhauled? When we move from a compliance based monitoring system to a performance based system how will you justify the what, how and why of your program? Are you ready? Are you working to inform your staff? Will you champion the drive forward?

Use this session to continue to build excellence and move your program to the next level. Yes, we will provide all the resources needed to take this training back and train staff on the performance standards. Many of you have already accessed resources from ECKLC, but when training staff you need more interactive and engaging activities. We will provide the basic materials to train staff with engaging activities so the learning sticks. But more importantly, what is it that you need more of and how can this session help? How can systems thinking help? Phase two of this session will provide you tools to inform you and your team on the cultural shift happening. Change and leadership is a must! How will you motivate overworked and underpaid staff to carry your mission forward? This is like peeling the onion back, each section is critical to overall operations. This training will provide you with strategies to build, redesign and move forward in ways you never thought of. You leave with both the tools and resources needed to provide the training back at your organization. But most importantly you gain insight on how to look more deeply at your work, your program and move people to a different level. You will be the champion!

“Champions are not the ones who always win races - champions are the ones who get out there and try. And try harder the next time. And even harder the next time. 'Champion' is a state of mind. They are devoted. They compete to best themselves as much if not more than they compete to best others.”
