Lead, Empower, Inspire - every child can do all this, and so much more. Every child can help bring about new innovations, new ideas, new technologies, new approaches that will make the world an amazing and safe place to live. To lead others with integrity our children first need enabling environments to explore who they really are as individuals, and to confidently discover their inner gifts and talents.
The role of Early Years Educators and Thought Leaders is especially important nowadays when we are entering the New Global Paradigm Shift in early childhood education - the paradigm that calls for the educational approaches that promote celebrating child’s individuality. These approaches, such as Personalised and Self-Directed Learning, Child’s Energy Expression Profiling, Positive Pedagogy and Full Potential-Oriented Education, will greatly assist educators in nurturing our children’s Natural Leadership Mindset - the most important skillset needed today and in the future.
