Lift Staff Morale
March 18, 2021
If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.
-Booker T. Washington

“The number one strategy we can use to lift staff morale in early childhood programs is to communicate that each member of the team is appreciated, respected, and cared about,” writes Ellen Drolette in her article, “Sustaining High Staff Morale - It’s an Inside Job,” which is part of the Exchange Essentials article collection “Motivate Your Staff.”

And in the same collection, Carol Garboden Murray asks, “As a director, mentor, or supervisor, do you facilitate others to name the reason why they work with young children? In his book, Start with Why, Simon Sinek (2011) says that those who know their ‘why’ are the ones who lead and inspire others. He explains that starting with the why is a way to think from the inside out and let your heart and passion guide your work.”
