Recorded Webinar: Leadership Clinic Part 1
What does it take to be an effective leader?
Duration: Approx. 45 min
This webinar is the first 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 these 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 has been 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

In this first webinar Barbara and Bridgit have begun to unpack and explore what it means to be an effective leader and the impact this can have on the success of your early childhood service.
Presented by Barbara Watson (PhD)
