Leadership Priorities
October 2, 2015
Let us not say, Every man is the architect of his own fortune; but let us say, Every man is the architect of his own character.
-George Dana Boardman

In a recent Research Notes, the McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership shared the results of a leadership study conducted in Australia. Three hundred and fifty-one early childhood leaders were asked to rate the most important leadership capacities. These capacities rated the highest:

1.  Advocate for all children and families
2.  Develop and sustain relationships
3.  Develop and manage self
4.  Create and share knowledge
5.  Promote inquiry and reflection
6.  Sustain partnerships and networks

Early childhood program administrators often have a global impression that things are going well or not so well at their center, but they lack specific feedback on just what the different areas of the organization contribute to those impressions. This updated and expanded edition helps directors define more precisely how ten dimensions of a center shape the quality of work life for staff. It will help you look at your program in terms of collegiality, opportunities for professional growth, supervisor support, clarity, reward system, decision-making, goal consensus, task orientation, physical setting, and innovation. Written in an engaging and lively style, the ideas in this book will help you sharpen your leadership skills and make your center A Great Place to Work.
