What Coaching Leaders Do Differently

The term "coaching" has been trending as a corporate buzzword for some time now. We're all familiar with athletics coaches. But when someone advises us to find a coach to learn a new skill or solve...

Feedback is the DNA of development. Learn how to ask for it and take it.  Oh...and the more you give, the more you get!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 28, 2:19 PM

94% of human resources people might say they prefer positive feedback, but that does not explain when they escort an employee of site. I find it useful to ask for examples. I once had a School manager suggest I was being unprofessional, but, when I asked for an example, he had none.

 

Feedback and criticism are necessary for growth. The relationship we have with employees and students is important in providing feedback and criticism. I eliminated giving marks on many activities and used rubrics as a way to guide learning. These were well explained to the students and became useful in student learning.

Embrace criticism!

Philip Powel Smith's curator insight, July 29, 8:04 AM

Criticism is always a difficult pro-active action that educators have to give. Criticism without ridicule and shame is what students need to hear and an explanation of how to make the changes to be better learners and communicators.

(From the article): David Gergen, in 2000, published Eyewitness to Power, summarizing his perspective on leadership after having served in the White House for several presidents from both political parties. Though derived from a wider range of proven examples, the lessons learned have great resonance because they can apply to education. Here they are:

Two Faces of Perfectionism | Psychology Today

Two Faces of Perfectionism | Psychology Today | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

On the surface, striving for perfection in the things we do is a good thing. It helps us plan, organize, strategize and achievegoals. But there is a flip side to perfectionism that can harm children and teens as they journey through their school years.

 

How should parents and educators help kids understand their perfectionist tendencies so that doing their best doesn’t drag them down?

It is interesting how few classroom teachers and administrators are aware of what self-directed learning is. SDL is an imperative for our children.

Avery's curator insight, March 25, 2013 11:56 PM

My Thoughts:

You can't teach someone how to learn. You can give them helpful tips and advice, but a single structure for education is not going to work for everyone. It's so much harder for people to learn their true potential, to reach their goals, when they're only shown a single path to them. You show them the path through the forest, but what if there's a rock face nearby that also leads up to where they want to go, and what if they happen to be a fantastic rock climber? It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.

Because A PLN Is a Gift…

Because A PLN Is a Gift… | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

 

Yes, I talk about Twitter all the time.  I rave about the people I’ve met. I am addicted to edcamps.  I stalk the blogs of people who inspire me.  I read, save, download, bookmark, and retweet what makes me a better educator.  What is it all about? The people who are a part of my PLN, or personal learning network.  I often say the “P” in PLN stands for “Positive.”  One tweet can change your entire perspective, push your thinking, solidify your thoughts, or make you question something you didn’t even realize you needed to question.  For that? I am incredibly grateful.  The PLN is a gift that keeps on giving. It encourages you to give back just as much. It inspires you to do more, be more, and to never stop learning. So, to every person in the world who has become part of mine, I just wish to say “Thank you!”

Learning from Mistakes: Helping Kids (and each other!) See the Good Side of Getting Things Wrong

Learning from Mistakes: Helping Kids (and each other!) See the Good Side of Getting Things Wrong | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
by Marilyn Price-Mitchell, Ph.D. This article shows how learning from mistakes is good for children, examines research, and provides helpful guidelines to parents. Mistakes and misjudgments are a normal part of kid's lives.

 

Adults understand that making mistakes is part of life.

 

===> What’s important is how we learn from them. <===


Yet, many children are growing up in a society that pressures them to be perfect – to get the highest SAT scores, to land prized scholarships, to get into the best universities. Some parents complete or correct children’s homework to get them a better grade. So how does all this focus on testing and perfection affect kid’s learning?

 

===> And how can we help them learn from mistakes? <===

Leadership has been changing for some time, but not uniformly. It is not readily evident in education that hierarchy is a thing of the past. What this means is that we are educating children and youth in a model that theorists think is passe. No wonder we have a crisis. Practice and theory are not separate, they are fused.

Excessive concerns about making mistakes, pernicious self-doubt, harsh self-criticism, impossibly high standards or expectations for performance, a strong and chronic tendency to evaluate one’s performance as not measuring up to levels expected by oneself or others - these are features of maladaptive perfectionism that predict psychological distress.

Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
I am interested in this post and post on critical thinking. Is critical thinking a skill?  Can one teach critical thinking? Stephen has delivered the course on Critical Literacies MOOC in the past....

 

Robert H. Ennis, Author of The Cornell Critical Thinking Tests
“Critical thinking is reasonable, reflective thinking that is focused on deciding what to believe and do.”

 

Assuming that critical thinking is reasonable reflective thinking focused on deciding what to believe or do, a critical thinker:

 

1. Is open-minded and mindful of alternatives
2. Tries to be well-informed
3. Judges well the credibility of sources
4. Identifies conclusions, reasons, and assumptions
5. Judges well the quality of an argument, including the acceptability of its reasons, assumptions, and evidence
6. Can well develop and defend a reasonable position
7. Asks appropriate clarifying questions
8. Formulates plausible hypotheses; plans experiments well
9. Defines terms in a way appropriate for the context
10. Draws conclusions when warranted, but with caution
11. Integrates all items in this list when deciding what to believe or do

 

What are the principles of critical thinking?

 

- Knowledge is acquired only through thinking, reasoning, and questioning. Knowledge is based on facts.


- It is only from learning how to think that you learn what to think.


- Critical thinking is an organized and systematic process used to judge the effectiveness of an argument.


- Critical thinking is a search for meaning.


- Critical thinking is a skill that can be learned.


- Do the above principles hold true and won’t change from one domain to the next?

Are we sure that Critical Thinking is really appreciated as it should? In my personal experience critical thinker are often opposed if not hunted. Deciding to be a critical thinker may have a high price especially in certain context like industry or management. Definitely it brings better results and can easily foster innovation, but it is hated by man of power and yes-men. I pride myself of constantly trying to be a critical thinker and most of all to be critical of myself and my actions, but I have to say that this has taken me quite a toll in my life, yet I do not regret it. Sorry for stepping in, I do hope this two-penny thought could help in sparkle some discussion on how to foster critical thinking.
