“Everything Rises and Falls on Leadership.”- John Maxwell
Your business success is solely dependent on your ability to lead a team or other leaders. In 2017, I took on a second location and at that time, I had two Directors and 20 employees. Back then, I realize that I could not be everywhere at the same time, however, I had two wonderful Directors, that could see what was happening on a daily basis in the facilities.
This is when I decided to do a weekly leadership meeting to stay informed on what was going on in the facilities and I also, utilized Leadership meetings as a way to inspire my Center Directors. I must be quite honest with you, it is one thing to lead yourself and hold yourself accountable, but when it comes to holding others accountable, that’s a whole new ball game.
Do you have a Center Director? Do you have multiple locations? Do you frequently leave someone in charge of your home daycare or center?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, I want to challenge you to hold a weekly Leadership meeting to be sure that your Leaders know what you expect, and it is a great way to set goals together for Business Success!
Here is a Sample Leadership Meeting Agenda:
Start your meeting with a funny story or Prayer.
List a leadership Quote on the meeting agenda.
Be sure to indicate the date and time of the meeting.
- Safe playground practices
- Getting prepared for an upcoming licensing visit.
- Address Parent concerns.
- Our goals for the week.
Look ahead together and discuss upcoming events, etc.
I hope that you are inspired to empower those Leaders around you to assure that your Dream is carried out by Leaders that you took the time to inspire. Also, I want to encourage you to download my Art of Owning a Center Coaching Series or my Book 7 keys to Successfully Managing multiple Locations.
Please take a moment to let me know if you are a Center Owner with one or more Directors on your team. I am working on a membership club for Child Care Leaders.
With your Success in Mind!
