Becoming a Conflict Competent Leader (San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 2013)

Hello ECE friends from the Broomfield Summit,

I found a university that posted the 1st edition of this book in PDF.  If you are interested in reviewing it before you purchase the 2nd edition.

Friends that did not attend our session, I used the book in developing an understanding of how early childhood organizations can become effective at achieving their goals like Colorado QRIS and implementation of evidence-based interventions.

I may create a voice-over video if asked.  Anyone interested?

Thanks friends,

Hello ECE Friend,

After taking a break from creating videos, tweeting, and blogging to focus on my Dissertation I am back for a little fun sharing with my friends.  I will be doing a rare session at the Broomfield Early Childhood Summit (I can not say no to my Broomfield ECE friends) on Nov 8th.  Click below to register.  See below for session info.

Register for Event

Our friends will explore the concepts of organizational conflict, management & leadership of conflicts vs positive organizational relationships. All concepts are needed to create early childhood organizations that are effective at creating positive outcomes for children and families. More importantly, our mental health as leaders in early childhood will be supported and nurtured! Once conflict has moved from crisis to a positive attribute of your organization achievement of your goals (including QRIS) is easier!

Have you ever heard of Appreciative Inquiry (AI)?  The last (5 of 5) of the organization development video series for ECE

AI is a philosophy that incorporates an approach and process for engaging people at any or all levels to produce effective, positive change. Every organization has something that works right, things that give it life when it is most alive, effective, successful, and connected in healthy way to its stakeholders and communities. AI begins by identifying what is working and connecting to it in ways that heighten energy, vision, and action for change!   (more…)

All too often we make decisions with the best intent in mind.  We create practices, policies, and procedures (PPPs).  We write them up, send them out, train on them, reward and punish for the use.  To our sadness, after an employee uprising these PPPs seem to contradict your intent, values, or mission.   (more…)
