Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | BCPVPA - Short Course - Group 5 - Web Sites to Share | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

This is a pretty good article for teachers who are trying to divert from the traditional methods of leading the class. The main focus should be the steps given, which are easy to learn and broad enough to adapt any classroom. I would recommend others use this article as a guideline to how you should lead the class room. I like the idea of imagining the role as a "learner first."

Quoting from the post: "The Ethics and Responsibilities of the 21st Century Classroom: A Collaborative Guide to Best Digital Learning Practices for K-12 Teachers and Administrators

PREAMBLE: Tools aren’t teachers, they aren’t students, and they aren’t magic.

We need to know the limits and possibilities of our twenty-first century tools and the role of teachers and administrators in ethically and responsibly using digital media to enhance and foster learning."

This is a "public, participatory document" and folks are invited to add their ideas and concerns. Some of the other areas addressed include: teacher training and time for collaboration, administrators taking the lead with digital technology and encouraging high quality student input and output.

This questionnaire could be used to get to know your students in the first weeks back college; the questions are more about the student than you, your classroom, or education.

 

Our job is to lead students to understanding, but student self-awareness should precede that. These questions hit at a range of topics, but all revolve around that idea of a learner’s identity.

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives™ 's curator insight, November 17, 2013 12:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.

The best leadership styles arises out of the situation, incorporating the characteristics of the followers and the task or challenge at hand. 

 

Let me say it up front. There is no best ideal leadership style. There are so many leadership styles and theories on it that it almost seems like a "flavor of the month" type of thing.

 

So as you can see, it is important to master a number of different styles, while remaining aware of the style you naturally prefer.

Leaders To Learn From

Leaders To Learn From | BCPVPA - Short Course - Group 5 - Web Sites to Share | Scoop.it

About Education Week Leaders To Learn From

In an environment of tight resources, tough academic challenges, and increasingly stiff competition from new education providers, smart leadership may matter more than ever for the success of America’s school districts. Against this backdrop, Education Week introduces the first of what will be an annual Leaders To Learn From report—a way to recognize forward-thinking education leaders and share their ideas.

 

This 2013 report, created with support from the Wallace Foundation, profiles 16 district-level leaders—superintendents, associate superintendents, and others—who seized on creative but practical approaches and put them to work in their school districts.

 

To help find these leaders, Education Week put out a call to readers for nominees, starting last June. We also sought nominations from the leaders of administrators’ groups in most of the 50 states, as well as from members of the Education Writers Association, a Washington-based organization that includes local education reporters around the country.

The Inside-Out School: A 21st Century Learning Model | TeachThought

The Inside-Out School: A 21st Century Learning Model | TeachThought | BCPVPA - Short Course - Group 5 - Web Sites to Share | Scoop.it

"As a follow-up to our 9 Characteristics of 21st Century Learning we developed in 2009, we have developed an updated framework, The

 

"Inside-Out Learning Model.

 

The goal of the model is simple enough–not pure academic proficiency, but instead authentic self-knowledge, diverse local and global interdependence, adaptive critical thinking, and adaptive media literacy.

By design this model emphasizes the role of play, diverse digital and physical media, and a designed interdependence between communities and schools.

 

"The attempted personalization of learning occurs through new actuators and new notions of local and global citizenship. An Inside-Out School returns the learners, learning, and “accountability” away from academia and back to communities. No longer do schools teach. Rather, they act as curators of resources and learning tools, and promote the shift of the “burden” of leanring back to a more balanced perspective of stakeholders and participants.

 

"Here, families, business leaders, humanities-based organizations, neighbors, mentors, higher-education institutions, all converging to witness, revere, respond to, and support the learning of its own community members.

 

"The micro-effect here is increased intellectual intimacy, while the macro-effect is healthier communities and citizenship that extends beyond mere participation, to ideas of thinking, scale, legacy, and growth."
