On the day of the event, attendees will choose one morning session and one afternoon session from the following:
The Space Between (Angel Stoddard)
It is said that the space between the logs makes the fire and the space between the notes makes the music. So it goes, the space between allows us to reflect…on the situation and on ourselves. In this workshop you’ll take a deeper exploration on the impact reflection and mindfulness have on our ability to lead with our head and our heart.
Play to Passion to Purpose (Pam Boulton)
Tony Wagner writes on innovation, change leadership and education. He expects educational leaders to model the behaviors of learning, collaboration, effective teaching and risk-taking. Learn how to take his ideas and theories and apply them to your work in early childhood care and education while exploring his question, “What does it mean to be a 'Change Leader' in Education?”
Mindful Leadership! (Angel Stoddard)
“Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders!” – Tom Peters. Let’s tie together the best research from Emotional Intelligence, and mindfulness to increase your leadership repertoire! Attend this thought-provoking, interactive workshop and leave with new insights into your own leadership as well as some new tools to add to your repertoire as you strive to create more leaders.
Self Regulation Isn’t Just for Kids! (Pam Boulton)
Self regulation and executive function are as important for adults as they are for children. These functions are skills we use as adults every day. They include, but are not limited to: being able to stop and think before you act, acting appropriately when tempted to do otherwise, paying attention despite distractions, staying on task when bored, and delayed gratification. How do we help the adults we work with to keep themselves mindful of their own need to self-regulate?
