Rob Duke's insight:

The Constitutional Argument for public policy, developed by James Buchanan (1986) states that if better institutions don't arise, then these are the best ones available.  Despite the tautological nature of that statement, Buchanan devises a way to judge the political processes and if open and representative, you can judge some level of logic that this must be the best idea that's so far been uncovered. 

 

Buchanan, James, Rights, Efficiency, and Exchange: the irrelevance of transaction costs, p. 97-102, in Liberty, Market, and State: Political Economy in the 1980's, Brighton: Wheatsheaf. 1986.

2ND CHANCES: Misdemeanor diversion program expands to adults

DURHAM — A new program is being launched to give second chances to people facing misdemeanor charges in the city and county of Durham.

The Durham Adult Misdemeanor Diversion Program will be offered to adults age 18 to 21 and is based on an already existing program geared towards 16 and 17-year-olds. However, both programs are only offered to first-time offenders who commit non-violent misdemeanors.

A serial killer’s daughter: restoring the families of the offender

A serial killer’s daughter: restoring the families of the offender | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
I've created a whole network of people like me - daughters, sons, siblings, parents and grandparents of serial killers. So far, I have had direct contact with more than 300 people like this - we are an underground community.
Recently I was contacted by the mother of two young girls, whose father was a serial killer who had been all over the papers in Europe. One of these girls was so depressed she was thinking of suicide. I asked my network to write letters to the girls, to let them know it gets better in time.
And it does. All these people have their own story, and each of them is on his or her own journey of recovery. But there are some emotions and processes we all go through. We all have a period of denial, we all ride that pendulum of shock and grief. Then comes the anger.

Nils Christie's Legacy | Criminology in Europe

Nils Christie's Legacy | Criminology in Europe | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
In the first place is the invention of Conflict Resolution Boards. Through this mechanism, conflicts which contain elements of "crime" (Nils did not like that word) are brought back to those who own them; that is, they are pulled out of the hands of lawyers and criminal justice agencies. In Conflict Resolution Boards, the conflicts are (ideally) transformed into discussions between human beings, where solutions are found. Conflict Resolution Boards represent a long history. Nils Christie is by far the most important inventor in question.

Secondly, he invented the "importation model" in criminal policy. The "importation model" is even more representative of Nils Christie' ability to think of extraordinary ways of doing things. In earlier times, specialists like medical doctors, teachers, social workers and others were employed directly by the prison system or the prison governor. Christie's idea – his invention – was to employ these individuals quite differently. He proposed to employ them outside the prison system, and import them from the outside and into the prison system.  The aim was to avoid at least some of the pressure of loyalties brought to bear on medical personnel, teachers and others from those within the prison system.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 4, 9:41 AM

(From the article): To increase your chances of resonating, ask, "Is this the appropriate time to deliver this idea? Is there anything already being discussed that I can connect my own idea to in order to give it context?"


Your voice is your single greatest possession as a leader. It's what allows you to mobilize and direct your team, and ultimately it's how you build a body of work you can be proud of. If your work matters to you, make the effort to cultivate a voice that resonates, and you’ll find your influence multiplying in ways you never expected.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman issued a 40-page ruling Thursday morning, saying he found "several significant legal deficiencies" in how NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell investigated accusations the Patriots used footballs inflated below league-mandated levels.

The NFL failed to give Brady proper notice he could be suspended, didn't provide him the opportunity to question one of the league's investigators and denied him equal access to investigative files, Berman wrote in his ruling.

3 Situations Where Leaders Should Keep Their Mouths Shut

3 Situations Where Leaders Should Keep Their Mouths Shut | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it
The toughest part of leadership is learning when to speak up, and when you to delegate to someone else.
Rob Duke's insight:

1. The problem isn't ready to elevate to the boss unless the employees have already identified a possible solutions.  You deny them the opportunity to solve problems and lead from their level if you take the problem on too quickly.  Furthermore, there are many positive functions for conflict within the organization (identifies intensities, allies, threats, creates cohesion, etc.) that you will miss if you step in too soon (see Lewis Coser's work for more on this);

2. When someone needs to vent, they may need your ear, but both of you should recognize that it's just venting and the problem isn't ready to rise to your level unless no. 1's conditions are met; and

3. When you don't have an answer: there's a reason to push decisions down to the level with the most information--that's where the solutions are more likely to be found.

How to Create a Happy Work Culture | Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Restorative Justice | Scoop.it

Your company may have a fantastic product or service, but your business may still falter if there is a negative work environment. Most importantly, you personally must be happy and positive, and present yourself as such, if you want a positive culture in your company. As a leader, prepare yourself daily with positive “vibes” like good self-talk and listen to something motivating on the way to work. You can even think of whose day you will personally be cheering up at work.

The new systems generally:

Focus on the employee in his or her own role.  They no longer try to rank employees against one another or compare performance to other employees.
Provide feedback more often.  Rather than a single review once a year, the new systems tend to provide feedback more often, at the end of each major project or every quarter, for example.  Deloitte has also implemented weekly check-ins with team leaders to help fuel performance.
Require less time to complete. Deloitte is using only four questions, two of which require yes or no answers.
