Purpose-driven leadership: The key to a clear vision and increased profit at your center [Webinar]

In this webinar we were joined by Shira Leibowitz, PhD, CEO and Founder of Discovery Village Center! Dr. Leibowitz joined us to explore ideas for redesigning education and the impact of purpose-driven leadership. Dr. Leibowitz shared strategies for how early childhood leaders can use purpose-driven leadership to deepen their purpose, create a clear vision for their center, and increase their profit. With the recent release of her new book Havens of Hope: Ideas for Redesigning Education from the COVID-19 Pandemic, we also heard stories of resilience, creativity and growth from educators across the country featured in Havens of Hope, and discussed its deep question: Could this be the beginning of a new approach to child care?

🧪Key Learning Outcomes from Dr. Leibowitz!

  • Purpose-driven leadership is the most meaningful path to enhance quality and increase profitability at your center.
  • Your purpose is your core value and is the key to a clear vision and increased profitability. Your purpose should be one word (or a few if you must).
  • Your vision is the “what”, your mission is the “how” and your purpose is the “why”.
  • Having a clear vision, that is implemented skillfully through your mission and is grounded in your purpose is the path to designing a stand out center.
  • Purpose-driven leadership makes competition with other programs irrelevant because you’re standing out by what you stand for.
  • Early childhood leaders that are grounded in purpose, create centers and programs that thrive.
