I thought I’d share this simple idea with you to encourage professional reading and personal development amongst your Team. I’ve used this before and it’s worked and provoking discussion and ideas among practitioners
The picture above shows my “Monthly Envelopes” and, as the name says, I would hand these out to my Team at the start of the month. Inside the envelope I put in a copy of an interesting article relating to Early Learning and Childcare that I had found either in a magazine or online for staff to read and comment on. I would also include a motivational quote relating to Team building or from a well known theorist. And finally, to promote wellbeing and for a bit of fun too, I would put in a small pack of colouring pencils and an adult colouring sheet to encourage Mindfulness. Simple, fairly inexpensive and pretty useful don’t you think?
