Kimberly S. Scott's insight:

I like the idea of "coaching up" vs. "managing up." Framing this as coaching might encourage more beneficial practices for both parties, such as approaching conversations with self-awareness, empathy, and an understanding of the boundaries in this relationship. Adaptability is important, but so is authenticity in how you work with others.

"Multilevel Analysis of PBL Design" by Kimberly S. Scott

The increasing use of experience-centered approaches like problem-based learning (PBL) by learning and development practitioners and management educators has raised interest in how to design, implement and evaluate PBL in that field. Of particular interest is how to evaluate the relative impact of design characteristics that exist at the individual and team levels of analysis. This study proposes and tests a multilevel model of PBL design characteristics. Participant perceptions of PBL design characteristics are used to examine PBL reactions and perceived learning outcomes. Findings affirm the importance of problem design characteristics and effective team facilitation, while raising new questions about team-level characteristics such as goal orientation diversity.

The Crises of Complexity

The Crises of Complexity - The Huffington Post
Kimberly S. Scott's insight:

Terry Newell's take on why we struggle so much to address complex problems--lack of foresight, character and skills to lead, collaborate, and manage. He also makes a great point that we are responsible for creating our own crises of complexity. The same set of skills, and faults of character, cause these crises to begin with.
