A Three-Day Residential Course for Early Childhood Leaders

Topic for 2018 is…

How to take on feedback and advice with curiosity and grace

All humans are naturally hardwired for learning. We may be wired to learn, but learning about ourselves is a whole different ball game. We are told that “feedback is good for you – like exercise and broccoli”! It makes you stronger and helps you grow – BUT is that always the case?

The reality is that for feedback to be ‘good’ for you it needs to be:

  • Received and absorbed
  • Given skilfully
  • Used effectively   …this then is the challenge of feedback.


Enrol in this new Sustaining Outstanding Leaders course held in beautiful Hanmer Springs and explore with us the:

  • Truth Triggers
  • Relationship Triggers
  • Identity Triggers   …of feedback.



Here’s what participants from our May 2018 programme said:

SOL allows three days of networking with others, a time to refresh and recharge, and lots of learning and looking at ourselves and leadership styles. Thank you Karen and Liz, job well done. 
Claire, Fundamentals, Christchurch 

A very informative and fun three days. It was great that it was not all just sitting and taking notes. It was practical and memory stamping. Thank you both.
