I was this kind of director once until I began to discover the strategies that could make a difference. Follow along with me as I share these strategies and guide you along the path to create greatness. There are several steps you can take to creative Greatness:
1. If you’re constantly putting out fires in your workplace & the goals you’ve set for your program to attain always take a back seat to fires created by your staff, look at some of Juanita’s ideas below for things to do.
2. Are you facing problems that seem impossible to solve? Do you have dreams for your program that staff do not care about? Do you know things your program needs to work on, but experience stress when you try to get staff to follow you? If so, you are stressed beyond belief! If you need help with these issues, you’ve come to the right place. Follow along below to see some of the strategies Juanita has for you.
3. Instead of constantly putting out fires, decide one goal you want to focus on. When a fire comes up, use your goal to calm the fire. For example, someone tells you they are sick of working with a certain child. Since one of your goals is to help staff see how to meet the needs of young children, ask this staff something like, “It seems like that child did something that upset you.” When you do this, most likely the teacher will tell you what happened, and you can help them figure out things to do to address the situation. Then they know how to respond to and help the child. Then you will be able to help them brainstorm other ways to respond to this child.
4. Do you dread supervising your staff because they create so many problems? When you need to supervise staff because they are on their phone instead of being with children, ask staff what they have been learning about children during their day. This will help them focus on what they need to do for the children.
4. When you want staff to focus on your goals for the program, ask them what they think teachers need to be working on to make their program great. This pulls staff into the planning process and helps them know you value their ideas.
5. When things seem harder than you ever thought possible, schedule a free 30 minute consultation with Juanita. She will help you see what things you need to work on and give you ideas for how to begin making your program great.
I help programs focus on what they need to do to make their programs strong. We focus on the problems staff are causing you and plan ways to value them and create a team with them that wants to solve problems.
