Leadership

Leading Your Team Through Change - Webinar

The world is always changing, and nothing stays the same, this is particularly true in the ECEC sector where policies and practices seem to change daily. How successful these changes are is dependent upon on how they are managed at the service.  

Is everyone on board with the change or are there some who are attempting to block it? 

Our leadership expert will help you to discover how to manage the change process at your centre so that everyone is committed to making it happen.
