Cruise Line Class's curator insight, April 24, 2014 9:47 AM

No doubt about it, being a leader is not easy.  Change is the constant, and we are expected to be the messenger in selling the vision. 

 

It is an important role that we play, because our employees trust us.  They will follow if we believe the vision. 

 

When communicating to people -- slow if fast.  We must sell the vision to ourselves before we communicate out to our teams. 

 

Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

Learning to Teach

Learning to Teach | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

School-based professional development approaches provide an opportunity for teachers to focus more on the needs of their students and as a result they lead to better student performance. This kind of professional development helps to create a culture of learning throughout the whole school. Teachers and school leaders who develop their competences on a regular basis demonstrate to students that learning matters and that school is a place where both students and teachers learn. My personal experience of professional development within my school context revolves around the idea of collaboration and the importance of nurturing values and competencies that go beyond the acquisition of facts or transmission of academic knowledge. If as educators we preach and stand up for active citizenship with all that it encompasses , we have to model a professionally active lifestyle at school, one in which we involve ourselves in projects with our learners, one in which we embark on active research, one in which we collaborate with our peers while allowing learners to see that we are working and creating meaning together.

Employee Training: An Business Investment You can Count On

Employee Training: An Business Investment You can Count On | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Return on investment.” When a business has made an (often significant) investment in an employee training and development program, they want to see tangible results. But what type of results should we measure?

Employee training and development is a ‘people’ investment just as much as it’s a ‘cash’ investment. The returns from an organization’s investment in their people can help improve talent recruitment, increase employee retention and engagement, and perhaps most importantly, contribute to a positive work environment.

The CEO’s guide to competing through HR 

The CEO’s guide to competing through HR  | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

We believe the time is right to accelerate the reinvention of HR as a hard-edged function capable of understanding the drivers of strategy and deploying talent in support of it—most importantly as a result of the availability of new technological tools that unleash the power of data analytics.

To advance the agenda, we believe businesses need to concentrate on four things: rethinking the role of business partner to enable a better understanding of the vital link with strategy, using people analytics to identify the talent actions that will drive the value, fixing HR operations so they are not a distraction from HR’s higher mission, and focusing HR resources in more agile ways so as to support these fresh priorities. Companies that take these steps will move toward a next generation of HR that’s data driven, not experience driven; systematic, not ad hoc; and consistent, not hit and miss.

"Too many leaders have been conditioned to think of leadership only in terms of power and control,” says best-selling business author Ken Blanchard in the July/August issue of Chief Learning Officer magazine. “But there is a better way to lead—one that combines equal parts serving and leading. This kind of leadership requires a special kind of leader—a servant leader.”

In this model, leaders have to be prepared to play two different roles in the organization.
