The Five Top Leadership Blind Spots

The Five Top Leadership Blind Spots | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

An interesting pattern begins to emerge when you look at which issues leaders seem to struggle with clearly identifying as areas of weakness or risk within their organization.

 

Consider them Blind Spots – those unseen things that create danger that we don’t react to until too late. Excelling at never being blind to these issues will clearly make the difference between being average and being great in your career.

Tips for Collaborative Meetings: Engaging Teachers

Tips for Collaborative Meetings: Engaging   Teachers | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

As someone who loves Edcamp, I hate (really, really hate) top-down, didactic meetings. In many ways, it’s a waste of time. If you're just going to tell me what to do (without my input), save us both a lot of grief and write me an explicit memo or email.   With that being said, I love (really, really love) collaborative meetings where everyone’s ideas are honored and shared. However, running a collaborative meeting can be risky (whether your audience is adults or kids).   If you’re in the process of planning a faculty meeting, consider the following tips (taken from a recent meeting I observed in a fantastic school in New Haven, CT) to make your meeting more collaborative.
