Inspiration and Positivity

An important aspect of my educational leadership role is to motivate others with a strength-based view. One way to keep me focused on the positives is to remind myself just what it is about the individuals in our staff team that inspires me and share that with them. This is a great way to let people know that you value who they are and helps develop successful relationships. I shared my thoughts about our staff team at our training event last night and have listed their special messages below without names. I would love for you to think about who in our MICCC team inspires you and why, can you work out who my messages were for?.... Why don’t you (our families and staff) leave one of our valued staff members a note and let them know how great they are or write something on our MICCC Facebook page.

? your ability to stand up for what this centre values inspires me to stop, breathe and respond to pressure situations calmly and professionally. You have influenced my own leadership style.

? your adaptability inspires me as you try your best to accommodate the needs of all staff and offer yourself as support in any situation.

? your knowledge of this centre and the families that have come and gone inspires me to plant my roots here and grow with MICCC

? the way you have returned to work has been inspirational, motherhood suits you and you have shown me that life can be so much easier when you don’t sweat the small stuff.

? your relaxed nature inspires me, you laugh when things get tough and simply push through to the other side without making a fuss. I wish I could stress less and take more of that on board.

? your willingness to open up and share inspires me, you value trust and in return gain respect for that. I hope to learn more about your bubbly personality.

? you continue to inspire me more and more as you push past your own boundaries and take on new challenges and roles at MICCC. You have a truly caring nature and advocate for children every day.

? working with you in the Bottlebrush Room was so inspiring and shaped me into the leader I am today. Your passion and concern for others’ wellbeing and your dedication to reflective dialogue in all aspects is truly inspirational. You even hugged me without me flinching!

? your list writing inspires me but more importantly your ability to recognise the efforts of others and praise them for it is an admirable quality.

? you seem to walk to the beat of your own drum and take things in your stride, a quality that inspires me each day as nothing ever seems too much or too stressful for you.
