    Description & More Details

    Early childhood program administrators often have a global impression that things are going well or not so well at their center, but they lack specific feedback on just what the different areas of the organization contribute to those impressions. This book helps directors define more precisely how ten dimensions of a center shape the quality of work life for staff. It will help you look at your program in terms of opportunities for professional growth, supervisor support, clarity, reward system, decision making, goal consensus, task orientation, physical setting, and innovation. Sharpen your leadership skills and make your center a great place to work.
