Recorded Webinar: Leadership Clinic Part 2
Setting and maintaining clear expectations
Duration: Approx. 60 mins
This webinar is the second in a series of interactive leadership conversations, led by Barbara Watson and Bridgit Williams. Each session has a leadership focus that has been illustrated by way of relatable scenarios. Participants have discussed the problems, issues and dilemmas in scenarios and drawn on leadership theory and experience to develop a range of appropriate responses to each situation.

The intention is to present everyday leadership situations and collectively problem-solve potential and implementable solutions. 

The series will be structured around the following topics: 
  1. What does it take to be an effective leader? 
  2. Setting and maintaining clear expectations 
  3. Coaching effective practice in others 
  4. Managing poor performance 
  5. Having difficult conversations
  6. Understanding and working through power dynamics

One of the common questions we hear from leaders in ECE - is "how do I improve performance in my team?" Setting and maintaining clear expectations is key to high-performing teams. But that sounds so simple, and yet it isn't. 

In this webinar, Barbara and Bridgit have discussed how you can first establish and then maintain clear expectations that will bring alignment between your philosophy, vision and values - and team practices.

What others have to say about this webinar  

I really enjoyed his webinar. As a leader it made me reflect on my own practice around assumptions and to ensure I am being trustworthy and credible.  
It was a timely reminder for me to revisit expectations as with inducting a new teacher to our our team.

As a new leader I really enjoyed getting into the real life examples of how to approach these korero with others. I am still settling into my role as team leader and I feel so much better equipped to handle some much needed korero!
