2018 Directors Leadership Academy: Level 1-Round 7
The Family Conservancy Director Leadership Academy was designed by request of early education directors. It serves those who are currently a director, assistant director, other administrator or those who have a desire to be a director or leader in the field of early childhood. The Academy provides leadership skills training and focuses on ways to become a more effective leader to meet the needs of the program, as well as of the staff, children and families entrusted in their care. Class topics include: Communication, team building, ethics, leadership traits, behaviors/characteristics of working with adults, advocacy, mentoring, coping with change, budgets, supporting families, employment practices, and other leadership concerns. All programs will participate in a pre/post assessment using the Programs Administration Scale (PAS), will receive their own copies of the PAS book, and will use their pre-assessment results to set goals for the course of the project. In addition, each participant will receive follow-up coaching during the project.

Because there are only 25 slots available for this session of the Director’s Leadership Academy, it is very important that you commit to attending and engaging in the complete series (5 sessions). We will together challenge each other to intentionally ‘make a difference’ using our time, talents and resources.
