11 Simple Concepts to Become a Better Leader

11 Simple Concepts to Become a Better Leader | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Being likeable will help you in your job, business, relationships, and life. I interviewed dozens of successful business leaders for my last book, to determine what made them so likeable and their companies so successful.

(From the article): The Golden Rule: Above all else, treat others as you’d like to be treated


By showing others the same courtesy you expect from them, you will gain more respect from coworkers, customers, and business partners. Holding others in high regard demonstrates your company’s likeability and motivates others to work with you. This seems so simple, as do so many of these principles — and yet many people, too concerned with making money or getting by, fail to truly adopt these key concepts.

Rethinking Rookies: Why Are More New Teachers Quitting Early? - EWA

For decades teaching was considered a stable profession, with many individuals spending their entire careers at the front of the classroom. But the reality of a young teachers entering the teaching profession right out of school and only leaving when they retire is no more.

What support does your district provide for new teachers? According to this article, it is critical.

From the text:

"Headden said a teacher in the first few years of his or her career is facing more pressure than previous generations of teachers because of higher stakes testing that have real consequences if students don’t perform well.

But Headden said the support to comfort a teacher through that stressful first year and provide effective teaching techniques and strategies doesn’t exist in most school districts."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 7, 10:07 AM

Asking questions and waiting for answers is incredibly challenging work. Too often, we lose sight of this in the busyness of work. I found it was important to ask, listen, wait, and create spaces for students. It was easy to tell them what good questions were, but modeling it was more important and hard work.

In presidential pre-election debates we only care who won and often base that decision not on who did the best analysis of the issues but who looked most presidential in front of the cameras and who turned the best phrase or made the most clever put-down. - See more at: http://leadingwithquestions.com/latest-news/the-culture-of-tell/#sthash.ds2ZHLSk.dpuf>>;

10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently, by Carolyn Gregoire | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
"Even when we're not at a fork in the road, wondering what to do and trying to hear that inner voice, our intuition is always there, always reading the situation, always trying to steer us the right way. But can we hear it? Are we paying attention? Are we living a life that keeps the pathway to our intuition unblocked? Feeding and nurturing our intuition, and living a life in which we can make use of its wisdom, is one key way to thrive, at work and in life," says Arianna Huffington in her book, 'Thrive.' Our intuition is always there, whether we are aware of it or not. Intuition can serve as a compass and people who are highly connected to their "gut feelings" often do things a little differently, as described in this piece.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | 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.

Co-operative Behaviour: Neuroscience Insights

Co-operative Behaviour:  Neuroscience Insights | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
Co-operation is essential for the functioning of human societies — and several current public policy initiatives, including health and lifestyle and environmental campaigns, depend upon it. Many attempts to persuade people to co-operate and collaborate, however, fail — or succeed for only a limited time. Understanding the neural mechanisms for co-operation can help in developing more effective ways of promoting collective behaviour and in designing policies to achieve societal aims.

As a developing leader this is the way forward! Effective collaboration makes for great successes and mutuality is a wonderful principle to anchor your leadership behaviour upon! Thanks to David Hain for the great link!

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, May 10, 11:12 PM
Co-operation with others can be inherently satisfying — and that it’s not contingent on the prospect of material reward. (A 2004 experiment, for example, found increased activity in the reward system of the brain for mutual co-operation decisions, even when controlling for the amount of money earned by the decision itself.)Playing games with another human being is more satisfying (rewarding) than playing with a computer partner.The learning of co-operative behaviour is partly dependent on reciprocation — we tend to co-operate, over the longer term, with those who behave well towards us.Co-operation can be motivated by the anticipation of guilt — activity in regions of the brain associated with ‘negative affective states’ increases when people match the expectations of other players.The ability to understand the mental states of others, traditionally referred to as ‘theory of mind’, plays an important part in co-operation.Co-operation is context-specific, depending partly on prior knowledge of others and their trustworthiness.
