Developing Your Leadership in the Early Years Reviews


'This book benefits from the joint expertise and experience of the authors. By combining their different and complementary perspectives, experience and research into leadership they offer the reader a comprehensive introduction to developing their role as effective leaders in a challenging emergent sector. Emphasising that leadership is developed through reflective practice, the messages in this book demonstrate how theory underpins practice and discourages the reader from aligning themselves with any single theoretical approach to leadership. Effective leaders are authentic individuals and where leaders in early years settings are influencing the youngest members of society, it is authentic leadership that will mould the leaders of the future. An essential read for anyone working in the early years sector.' Martin Willis, Director, The Institute of Local Government Studies, University of Birmingham, UK
'The single most important factor that majority of the early years workforce would like to see in their leader is "inspiration"; somebody who can enthuse them to be "thinking by" and "doing by." Skilled leadership is essential in early years and in supporting families. This book is for those prepared to lead and effect change in families and communities they work with.' Razia Lakha, Sure Start Centre Co-ordinator, Milton Keynes, UK
