Well-Being - Emotionally Intelligent Leadership
Date: Tues., Mar 23, 2021, at 9 a.m. (PT), 10 a.m. (MT), 11 a.m. (CT), 12 p.m. (ET)
Join Dr. Jerry L. Eshleman and Christian educators from around the nation, as we continue the Well-Being Leadership Webinar Track. Leaders often have a great many details to juggle. This pandemic has given us even more to address. Of all the things we pay attention to, how is your staff doing? Not their performance per se, but their well-being. Specifically, how much to do we pay attention to their social-emotional well-being? Do we understand how this ultimately affects their performance? This session provides school leaders with a better understanding of how emotion and cognition work in the heads and hearts of our staff. We’ll examine what the research says about this critical aspect of human performance. This will then allow us as leaders to better understand, engage and support the amazing people God has placed in our school community and educational ministry. ACSI members will earn one clock hour CEU for their attendance.

Each of us is created in the image of God and created for His purpose. Our identity is rooted in who we are in Christ and not solely on our race or cultural differences.

Engage with us as a panel discusses approaches to teaching children about differences related to diversity and cultures in God’s world.
The recording will be available soon to ACSI members in the Early Education Community group.
