You’ve put together what you know is going to be a fabulous preschool leadership team. Now the question becomes, “What will they do?”
I narrowed our preschool leadership team’s roles and responsibilities down to 3 functions.
As a preschool leadership team, we are always evaluating. Some items of those items we assess are our environments, curriculum, volunteers, and resources. We ask the questions of what’s working well and what’s not working well. Opening yourself and your ministry up to feedback to a highly invested team makes you a better leader. In the next post, we’ll walk through a method for leading an evaluation time.
When we have significant events and initiatives, this is the team who I ask to help in the initial planning. They help to get the idea rolling and to create the overall plan.
Many times when we leave a meeting, one of the members of the leadership team will be responsible for heading up an event or project. From there, they will assemble a team with volunteers from our church who will be accountable for helping to execute. The project leader will check in with the leadership team and me from time to time to give updates. Delegating leadership empowers your team!
We’ve talked about the importance of a preschool leadership team, who should be on your team, and what their role should be. In the next post, we’ll talk about how to structure your meeting.
