Leading By Faith

“As you Grow as a Leader, Your Business Grows”

In January 2021, I began writing my new book, Lead by Faith. I was inspired to write this book, because it has taken nothing less that Big Faith to operate a child care center, meet the needs of families that my center serve along with leading my staff.

In fact, operating a childcare business comes with it’s rewards, however it also comes with so many demands. Along with all the rewards, the demands could lead to burn out, lots of stressful days and you could even be tempted to quit sometimes.

However, I believe that there is one thing that inspires you to keep going, even when times get tough and that is….FAITH!

A leader with Big Faith, has the inspiration to Lead through tough times and has a bounce back in his or her spirit. Most of all, a Leader with Big Faith has lots of hope and courage to keep moving forward no matter what the circumstances are.

In my new book, I share my journey of going from a home daycare provider to a center owner by Faith. Also, I share principles on how to build your Faith as you grow your business, how to lead through tough times, wisdom keys for business success, how to become a focused leader, how to lead like a Pilot and so much more!

Download the ebook today, take a look inside and order the paperback copy on Amazon. Most of all be sure to join my Lead by Faith Book Club on Facebook for discussion.

Keep Leading by Faith,

The Big Secret of Dealing With Staff

I can hardly believe that it has been 5 months since I’ve blogged! I have been busy settling into a new city and working on developing my leadership team.

As I wrote my Leadership meeting agenda for this week, I was inspired to share the agenda/training with you because I know that if you have employees; you may face some of the same challenges that I have faced with having employees.

Today I am going to share with you some principles that I gained from a book that I am reading titled: How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie. 

Let’s talk about People skills

“Business is 80% People skills and 20% Knowledge”

The Big Secret of Dealing with People

There is only one way to get anybody to do what you need them to do and that is by making them feel important and making them want to do it.

Remember this:

1.     Every body likes a compliment. (So remember to be intentional about giving compliments)

If you walk in a classroom and notice a clean and organized space, you can say; I love how you keep your room organized and clean. 

2.     Being critical kills ambition. (so give appreciation and encouragement)

Example: If you walk in a room and a teacher seems stressed. Stop and ask, is everything ok? After listening, you can say: I’m sorry you are having a rough day, but it will get better. How can I help?

An employee is late: You can say? I notice you were late, is everything ok? Then you can say, please remember to call if you anticipate being late so our rooms are not out of ratio. Also, I understand that traffic can be bad, however, please remember that it is very important that we are in compliance with the state child- to-ratio guidelines. So with that in mind, we need our team in the building on time.

So, try leaving a friendly trail of sparks of gratitude as you walk through your building. You will be surprised at how they will set sparks of friendship and connection with your team!

With your Success in Mind!
