Description

`Effective Leadership and Management in the Early Years ... is the best analysis of leadership and management that I have come across. It is a highly practical tool and a resource that will enable early years practitioners at different stages of professional development to explore, understand, rate and develop their leadership and management expertise.'
Jillian Rodd, Educational and Developmental PsychologistThere has recently been an unprecedented focus on early years care and education, particularly on the impact of the various adults who work and play with children in the birth to five/six-years age range. Staff in early years settings have had to adapt to many changes and demands, locally and nationally, from local authorities and national government, and none more so than those who suddenly find themselves in a leadership and management role in increasingly complex small early years businesses and settings, often without formal training or qualifications.The book is unique in providing not only a thorough analysis of the leader and manager's role and presenting it as a typology, but also in offering a clear and in-depth view of that role. It also presents ways in which the leader and manager can undertake self-evaluation or work alongside a peer to understand their own strengths and challenges more readily.The book conceptualises effective leadership and management as a tree, with the four key `branches' of effective leadership and management defined as:

Leaderships QualitiesManagement SkillsProfessional AttributesPersonal Characteristics and Attitudes
