As leaders in ECE juggling our personal and professional lives can take its toll. Building our resilience is vital to our success.

The role of a leader in the early childhood profession is a dynamic and often rewarding role.

However, with the current stresses on our profession – increasing compliance and administration requirements, teacher shortages and emotional labour of being there for everyone can be challenging even for the most organised leader.

This course will give you tools and strategies that will support you to:

  • Build your resilience in your role.
  • Manage your stress
  • Become more confident in your role
  • Fill your tank.
  • Learn from the experiences of other leaders in the room.

Take the time to invest in yourself as a person and a leader.
