Editor's Notes

  1. Onto our topic? What is resilence, what does it actually mean? Dictionary, what others see and my own thinking from my personal experience (student, teacher, leader)
  2. How does it relate to us as Indigenous leaders, we are confronted with more challenges than our non-indigenous leaders.
  3. Before I go into detail of this slide – it is my personal experience, it is not based on any research. My personal experience only. - reason – kids, family, community! It then goes without saying about relationships with the children and there families are absolutely essential – welcoming environment. It is also with staff collegues, my line manager - I also want to point out that whilst my relatively longevity at Kalaya is based upon a good respectful relationship with my manager – this has not changed with the varying personailies – Ive had 4 line managers and have managed to challenge and be challenged by each one of them – its my job! This is done in a respectful way. Relationships with staff – complexities – regional and state office staff.
  4. Responsibilities – Community resposibiliites, Australian Standards for Principals, TeFal, DiaF and Regulatory Authority for EC Centres. It is imperative that I meet all these requirements. I try not to be too suspicious but I do know that I need to be beyond reproach in the accountability stakes. This strongly affects my credibility as an Indigenous Leader & I see it as my Duty not to fall short in these areas.
  5. Reflection – one thing from University is that a good Teacher/Leader must be reflective. Personally, I like seeing the look on my staff members face, when I say I got it wrong, next time…..Most of all be kind to ourselves and others.
