Winter Leadership Summit: Appreciative Inquiry and Recruiting, Hiring, Training, & Retaining Great Staff

What's wrong?

What would be helpful?

On the surface, it may not seem like there is much of a difference between those two questions, but shifting from asking, "What's wrong?" to, "What would be helpful?" can bring about new possibilities. Start the morning off learning about Appreciative Inquiry (AI) and how to use the five (5) principles of AI to create affirmative environments.

Next, we'll shift our focus to Recruiting, Hiring, Training, & Retaining Great Staff. Discover the benefits of involving your team in solving challenges, and how to include both traditional and non-traditional modes of leadership.

You don't want to miss out on this year's Winter Leadership Summit! You're getting two (2) amazing trainings for the price of one.

Fabulous February Opportunities

A.C.T. Series Day:

Let's Talk About What's "Bugging" You in the Early Childhood Classroom

Don't "bug" out!

We get it: ticks,'s a big, "No thank you!" But really, there's no need to panic. There are a lot of myths out there, especially when it comes to lice. For example, did you know that lice don't actually prefer dirty hair? It's true, a warm head is a warm head to them.

Start the day off learning how to check, detect, treat, and prevent head lice. Later in the morning, learn more about tick-safe prevention strategies to help avoid disease and how to manage outdoor spaces to make them less attractive to ticks.

We can't guarantee that the thought of these creepy crawlies won't still send a shiver down your spine, but this training will give you the tools and resources to keep the children in your care and your staff safe.
