Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers?

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs

 

Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.

 

Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.

Sandrine Delage (Borgé)'s curator insight, August 14, 3:06 AM

Les termes de coaching et mentoring sont souvent utilisés et je n'avais pas vraiment réfléchi à la différence des deux approches. Si elles se basent toutes deux sur des échanges informels, elles ont un périmètre et des objectifs différents très bien expliqués dans l'article.

 

Cela va m'aider dans le mentoring que j'effectue autour du digital, activité que j'ai acceptée sant trop connaître les principes.

Do You Feel Pressure Or Do You Apply Pressure?

Do You Feel Pressure Or Do You Apply Pressure? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

One obvious yet under-appreciated law of business physics is:

 

For any given company, the larger the company becomes, the more opportunities emerge to screw it up. 

 

Another obvious but not well-understood law:

 

The more screwed up your company, the more people will complain about it and blame you.

 

If we take these two together, it is easy to see that without intervention, the larger your company becomes, the more people will complain and blame you.

An All-Call for a New Style of Leadership

An All-Call for a New Style of Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

It’s time for a new style of leadership. Today’s employees want to work for an organization that they can feel proud of: an organization that has values and viewpoints compatible with their own; an organization that is oriented toward the long haul, working toward the prevention of ills, not just curing the symptoms; an organization that cares about morals and ethics, doing what is in the best interests of its customers; and an organization that cares about the impact it has on the environment. Employees want this because they recognize that such an organization will also care about them.

The Paradox of Trust, Vulnerability and Leadership

The Paradox of Trust, Vulnerability and Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Humans tend to model the behavior they see. When leaders appear to be in control, know everything, never doubt, or never ask for help or input, employees think they have to do the same.  The behavior they see and deem as acceptable is to be strong, not question, never be wrong, and always know.  The opposite behavior is a sign of weakness and is unacceptable

Teachers are leaders. It is not a default position or one that is given to them. It exists in the very words education and pedagogy which mean leading children.

 

The default position has become one where teaching is not leading. It is about managing.

Joe Boutte's curator insight, July 22, 5:49 AM

Besides parents and family, teachers are the first leaders we deal with in our lives.  They inspire us, mold us, influence us, and lead us to discovery, learning, and dealing with the world around us.  Teachers are the epitome of leadership across the globe.

Leading in the 21st century

Wharton School professor Michael Useem scopes out the leadership challenges facing executives today:

 

Because the world is now more complicated and more uncertain, I think that on top of always having a great vision there will be a premium on thinking strategically and on being able to come back from setbacks, and maybe above all, on being very good at reading the increasingly ambiguous and uncertain universe we operate in.


Companies probably focus too much on the bottom line, too much on meeting quarterly analyst expectations, and this has cost us companies paying attention to what the country needs or what the world needs or certainly what the community requires.
