What Happens in Great Schools

What Happens in Great Schools | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it

After 40+ years of reporting about education, I am absolutely convinced that, in the very best schools, the students are the workers and the work they are doing is meaningful. What they do–their product–depends upon their ages and stages, but the concept doesn’t change. In these schools, teachers are conductors, directors, supervisors, guides or docents. This observation flies in the face of conventional wisdom, which holds that teachers are workers whose job is to produce capable students. That gets further bastardized when ‘capable’ is defined by test scores until we end up thinking, “The work of teachers is to add value, which is measured by higher te

What REALLY Causes Negative Thinking and What Can You Do About It?

What REALLY Causes Negative Thinking and What Can You Do About It? | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
Do you find that you get caught up in your head — thinking, churning and ruminating? If the answer is yes and you were to proceed along the generally accepted route for dealing with your negative thinking, you would find yourself challenging and battling your thinking, getting stuck in to change your negative thoughts to positive thoughts. Does this work? In my experience this is a fairly low quality option. Why? Because, it involves more thinking and that generally leaves us feeling worse, and requires a significant amount of energy and practice. So what’s the answer?

"Being present in the now in your body and acting in alignment with your deeper feelings will reduce constant mental chatter." ~ Kyle Davies

Tom Wojick's curator insight, November 10, 9:47 AM

I think it is impossible to separate thinking and feeling. What comes first the thought or the feeling? We might be more aware of our thoughts, but the thoughts have feelings associated with them. To effectively counter the negative cycle awareness of both the feeling and thought is helpful. Emotional Intelligence is the ability to sense, understand and manage both thoughts and feelings to produce the results you want.

Last week I talked about two burglary incidents. The first was my own. Although the juvenile offender was caught, the only participation I had in the entire juvenile justice procedure was when I received a restitution check for $250 in the mail. I was never given the opportunity to attend any court hearings or confront the boy or to deal with the psychological scars left by the burglary.

I would take this a step further. Teams shift to communities which are more organic and fluid and share a common etymological root with communication. I would think of trans-cultural communications as well as inter-cultural. Inter suggests between and trans suggesting a continuous changing process which we have to be aware of.

Jaro Berce uses martial arts, nature, and "effortless" leadership to describe the similarities between these disparate areas, while highlighting the integrative nature of everyday leadership.  The idea of not over-exerting our leadership should resonate and help leaders govern themselves in such a way as to maximize their influence.

Bureaucracy Must Die

Bureaucracy Must Die | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
How the architecture and ideology of organizations need to change.

Via Celine Schillinger

Anne Landreat's curator insight, November 11, 1:11 PM

Business people typically regard themselves as pragmatists, individuals who take pride in their commonsense utilitarianism. This is a conceit. Managers, no less than libertarians, feminists, environmental campaigners, and the devotees of Fox News, are shaped by their ideological biases. So what’s the ideology of bureaucrats? Controlism. Open any thesaurus and you’ll find that the primary synonym for the word “manage,” when used as verb, is “control.” “To manage” is “to control.”

Managers worship at the altar of conformance. That’s their calling—to ensure conformance to product specifications, work rules, deadlines, budgets, quality standards, and corporate policies. More than 60 years ago, Max Weber declared bureaucracy to be “the most rational known means of carrying out imperative control over human beings.” He was right. Bureaucracy is the technology of control. It is ideologically and practically opposed to disorder and irregularity. Problem is, in an age of discontinuity, it’s the irregular people with irregular ideas who create the irregular business models that generate the irregular returns.

Make no mistake: control is important, as is alignment, discipline and accountability—but freedom is equally important. If an organization is going to outrun the future, individuals need the freedom to bend the rules, take risks, go around channels, launch experiments, and pursue their passions. Unfortunately, managers often see control and freedom as mutually exclusive—as ideological rivals like communism and capitalism, rather than as ideological complements like mercy and justice. As long as control is exalted at the expense of freedom, our organizations will remain incompetent at their core.

There’s no other way to put it: bureaucracy must die. We must find a way to reap the blessings of bureaucracy—precision, consistency, and predictability—while at the same time killing it. Bureaucracy, both architecturally and ideologically, is incompatible with the demands of the 21st century.
