Helping Adults Succeed
March 14, 2018
A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done.
-Ralph Lauren

In the book, Developing People in Early Childhood Organizations, Gigi Schweikert provides these principles for helping the adults in an early childhood program be successful:

  • "Appreciate the skills, talents, experience, and ambition of those you supervise.
  • Build on the skills and talents of each employee.
  • Never assume your employees know what you want them to do.
  • Make your expectations simple and specific.
  • Communicate your expectations in a variety of ways – verbal meeting, written statement.
  • Clarify expectations. Ask the employee to tell you what he believes you expect.
  • Address safety issues first when communicating expectations.
  • Focus on one job goal that is not being met or where performance is marginal."
