(From the article): As we head into the New Year, ask yourself, “Am I too comfortable?”

 

Ask, “What do I want to accomplish?”

 

Then, make a decision to leave your comfort zone.

 

Don’t sit there any longer.

 

Don’t settle anymore.

 

And of course, don’t be comfortable.

 

What do you need to leave your comfort zone to achieve?

Why Good Professional Development Is Like Learning How To Fly

Why Good Professional Development Is Like Learning How To Fly | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Imagine if we taught pilots to fly without ever letting them in a cockpit. Or gave them the keys to a commercial airplane without the required hours—or years—of hands on training and practice. Sure, we’d show them plenty of PowerPoint presentations and make them sit through a few seminars on the theory and physics of flight, but then we’d slap on a graduation cap and let them take off into the big blue sky. Not only would it likely be ineffective, it would be borderline criminal. Yet when it comes to professional development for classroom teachers, that’s almost exactly what we do.

In this article, learning and training are somehow interchangeable. Learning is a human process which involves imagining what the meaning is in what is being learned. Training is a checklist process used in industrial settings where we go through the prescribed steps. The two are not the same thing, Having said this, good learning should help us fly and take off in new and adventurous ways. @ivon_ehd1
Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 10, 1:25 PM

PD is vital for teacher growth and sustainability yet it is often undervalued and often is not focused on what individual teachers need but, instead, on generic ideas and concepts or on "feel good" presentations about topics that are nebulous and non-specific like using technology or implementing reading programs. A shift is needed to move PD towards a growth mindset that focuses on how individual teachers can improve their teaching by beginning where they are as a teacher and sharing their ideas and growth with other teachers. It's not about presentations, even by "real teachers in real classrooms" but about change for individual teachers through support and collaboration of other teachers who also have a growth mindset.

Change is a static word. We want the change we create to be sustainable. In our world, we want change which is mastered and manageable. Is that what we really want?

 

I found that School change was often window dressing. The change was simply the latest fad, technique, tool, etc. It did not mean much, but sustained an outdated status quo.

Leadership In The Age Of Complexity: From Hero To Host, by Margaret Wheatley and Deborah Frieze | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
For too long, too many of us have been entranced by heroes. Perhaps it's our desire to not have to do the hard work, to rely on someone else to figure things out. But perhaps it's time for us to face the truth of our situation -- that we're all in this together, that we all have a voice -- and figure out how to mobilize the hearts and minds of everyone in our workplaces and communities.

The horrific events of September 11th will forever be remembered as one of the first, and certainly the largest terrorist attack on American soil our country has ever seen. America has significantly changed, and since then, our country’s leaders have courageously declared how we will not be intimidated by terror, how we refuse to live in fear, and now most recently, how America will continue to respond to acts of terror. But yet, many of usdo live in fear. Spend 5 minutes watching the local news and you can see an anxious tension in our airports, on our streets and for some, even in our homes. We are a nation whose leaders have tried to perpetuate an emotional state of groundedness, belief, strength, and resolve. As individuals, we truly want to believe our country is grounded, secure and strong. In many ways it is, but that tension still resides doesn’t it

Why Delegation Is Not About You

The common management lingo, “how to delegate” has always bugged me. Why? Because we usually talk about delegation as though it’s something you do TO other people, not FOR them. When reframed correctly, delegation isn’t just a productivity skill you gain personally (which it is), it’s also a development skill you deploy to help others achieve greater value to the organization

(From the article) The most effective leaders follow Leadership Rule #1, and return to it during those leadership challenges that require the very best of their leadership abilities. They understand that you cannot change expectations, alter perceptions, and motivate others unless you maintain the ability to influence them in a positive manner. When followers sense that your leadership decisions are made with other priorities, they will not trust you. Without trust, you will lose the ability maintain the positive influence necessary to motivate and inspire others, and you will have limited the value of your leadership investment.

 

Whether you are a brand new leader, or someone with years of experience, the next time you find yourself faced with a leadership decision, pause and remind yourself of this:

6 Ways Being Mindful Can Make You a Better Leader, by Bruna Martinuzzi | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
As Jon Kabat-Zinn puts it, mindfulness "wakes us up to the fact that our lives unfold only in moments." If we're not fully present for those moments, we may miss what's most valuable in our lives, both personally and professionally. Simply put, mindfulness is about not living in your head all the time and is about paying attention to where you are, what you're doing, or who you're talking to so that you are in touch with the right here, right now. Research shows that mindfulness reduces stress and increases concentration and clarity. Read on for five simple ways to practice mindfulness to improve your personal and professional life.

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...

3 Rules of Engagement for Making You and Your Organization Stronger | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

A house is only as strong as its foundation. A solid foundation gives the house a firm base allowing for less structural issues over time. This is also true for an organization. A strong foundation allows the organization to maintain an un-fractured workplace where individuals, who make up this foundation, reduce cracks in communication, relationships, and help keep the focus on the goals of the organization. An un-fractured workplace impacts employee engagement, corporate culture, and even the bottom line. The challenge most organizations face when building their behavioral organizational foundation is creating an intentional plan for how to strengthen the human supports of their structure. Rules of engagement can add that extra support, like rebar added to concrete when creating the base of a house
