Unlocking the Power of Connection: In Early Childhood Leadership

Conscious Leadership Mastermind

Transformative Container

In this blog post, I'm excited to share insights from our recent two-day workshop: "Harnessing Emotional Flexibility In Early Childhood, which is a cornerstone to our popular Conscious Leadership Program. Now in it's in its sixth year, it has been a transformative container for the 120 early childhood leaders, that have participated. We have participants from rural, regional and metropolitan areas join us from all over the NSW state.


The Starting Block for Professional Connections

Antidote To Isolation

Our two-day workshop serves as the foundation for what will be ten months of growth, connection, and discovery. It's here that the seeds of camaraderie are sown, providing a much-needed antidote to the isolation often felt in leadership roles. Inspired by Brené Brown's research, we delve into the power of vulnerability, fostering a space where every leader can find a sense of belonging and shared purpose.


An Organic and Responsive Program

Participant-Directed Content

What sets this program apart is its organic nature, shaped by the needs and insights of its participants. A prime example of this adaptability was our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, where we increased networking opportunities within the program to support leaders through unprecedented changes and uncertainties. This responsiveness ensures that our program remains relevant and supportive, no matter the external circumstances.

Building a Supportive Community

Ongoing Support and Growth

Over the years, many leaders have returned to the program, finding it an invaluable resource for upskilling in leadership, deepening their understanding of conscious leadership principles, and seeking a safe space that is rare to find elsewhere. This continuity fosters a deepening of connections and a growing network of support that extends far beyond the program.




Creating Safe Spaces for Dialogue

The Art of Conversational Intelligence®

My role as a facilitator is to ensure that every voice is heard and valued, drawing on my skills in Conversational Intelligence® to create a safe environment for expression and realising one's true capacity. It's in these carefully crafted spaces that leaders can share, learn, and grow without fear of judgment or criticism, allowing for genuine reflection and meaningful exchanges.


Looking Ahead: Ten Months of Transformation

More Than A Workshop

As we embark on this ten month journey together, I am reminded of the incredible potential that lies in a community of leaders dedicated to fostering emotional flexibility, resilience, and mutual support. The Conscious Leadership Mastermind Program is more than just a series of webinars, network meetings and workshops; it's a commitment to continuous growth and the collective well-being of our early childhood education community.
