Creating a Healthy Outlook as an Educator

What does leadership mean to you? Shaping your perspective on your own leadership style, values and ideals. How your views and attitude can unite, cultivate, empower and inspire the team that you oversee.

The Reasons Why

What Does Leadership Mean to You?
 

  • When you think of leadership what are the three words that come to mind?

  • We don’t often think about grace, compassion or empathy when it comes to leadership

  • Why not?

  • Leadership is often equated with dominance, ferocity, position and power

  • Leadership was often seen in the past from the viewpoint of strength and weakness

  • Modern leadership is geared more towards gentle/firm when guiding and supporting others

Influence and Impact
 

  • Who has played a role in influencing your development in your personal life and career?

  • What moments have played a pivotal role in who you have become as an individual and as a leader?

  • How will you move forward while respecting, honouring, understanding and reflecting on your past?

Vision
 

  • Leaders create the vision and direction for an organization

  • It is your ability to motivate and inspire others that enables them to deliver the vision

  • Leading is not something to be done halfheartedly

  • Educators will pick up on any hesitancy.  This will affect them “buying in” or trusting your leadership

  • This will impact their confidence in you as a leader

I have been an Early Childhood Educator for 20 years, having received my Diploma in Early Childhood Education from Douglas College. Since then, I have gained experience in a variety of areas within the field of Early Childhood Education: Director of a preschool, supervisor of after-school care as well as 3-5 and Infant Toddler programs and centre management. My primary focus has evolved to encompass team leadership, management training and program development. I have had articles published in provincial and national ECE journals on the topic of emergent curriculum and leadership. My goal as an Early Childhood Educator and facilitator is to support fellow educators and early years professionals in providing high-quality early learning experiences for children and families.

Testimonials

Management and leadership courses offered by an Early Childhood Educator truly is a gift in this line of work. Julie Hansen’s insight and understanding of childcare and early learning dynamics developed my skills and confidence as a manager. Her ideas are innovative, thoughtful and easy to implement for myself and my team. I enjoyed my one to one coaching calls, team workshops and leadership series I have taken with Julie. I recommend her to any new or veteran ECE or ECE Manager.

I would recommend Julie Hansen, Inspired ECE to anyone in the Early Childhood Education field! Julie has been a positive influence in my life with all of her workshops and resources. Julie has so much knowledge of all of the areas of Early Childhood Education and quality early learning experiences. I always walk away with something new and many ideas to take back to my own programs after attending a workshop with Julie . I've also done a consultation with Julie regarding recruiting ECE's and she had so much advice to offer. Thanks to Julie's advice, I was able to hire not one but TWO Educators for my center. If you're looking for professional development opportunities and/or professional consulting, I highly recommend connecting with Julie!
