Even if a student learns all the facts and figures about early childhood administration, he or she cannot hope to lead without understanding how to build dynamic relationships with staff, families, and community. Leading on Purpose: Emotionally Intelligent Early Childhood Administration is the first textbook based in fascinating hot-off-the-presses relational Emotional Intelligence theory. Bruno skillfully uses neuroscience (brain research on relationships) to breathe life into previously dry topics like regulatory legislation, facilities management and budgeting. Laying substantive EQ groundwork in the first two chapters, the author infuses every chapter that follows, from “Creating a community of problem solvers: winners not whiners” to “Quest for quality: licensing, accreditation and codes of ethics” with vibrantly engaging authentic case studies. Leading on Purpose is a text students will WANT to read. Are you ready?
