Empathy & Ethics

Empathy & Ethics | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

"The sheer volume and diversity of recent scandals in the corporate world, various levels of government, and even the media, has been astounding. Even though initiatives to get tough on corporate malfeasance were introduced and promoted in the early 2000s, it seems the only lesson learned is how to shield bad deeds more effectively while keeping up the appearance of compliance.

 

The most recent National Business Ethics survey reinforces this notion. Using data from the 2011 report, 42% of respondents state their organizations have weak ethical cultures — a result comparable the highest level in the history of the survey.

 

Given the importance of ethics in underpinning effective organizational leadership, the question remains: how do we demonstrate and promote ethical behaviour?When MRG examined what was the strongest predictor of ethical leadership behaviour out of the 22 competencies in their model, the resounding answer was empathy. In other words, leaders who scored highest on empathy also exhibited the highest levels of ethical leadership.

 

The results are intuitive. The definition of empathy is, “identification with and understanding of another’s situation, feelings, and motives.” Using this lens, we can see how empathetic leaders would be much more inclined to act in an ethical manner. Rather than being solely focused on their own needs and their individual responsibilities to their organizations, they are keenly aware of their connection with other people and the broader communities in which they live. They are able to integrate these values into their moral judgements, which limit their exposure to ethical risk. They appreciate and respect the needs of others and can take moral action that can serve multiple parties."

and hope for a better world - julie ali

http://readingchildrensbooks.blogspot.ca/2014/12/never-give-up-hope-dear-yukoners-if-you.html

 

and hope for a better world
but work for it as well
for the hell you are in
will only alter
if you choose this new world
begin where you are
and keep going
don't give up
and don't give in
yes it is terrifying
to work for change
but do not expect
anyone to come and help you
there are disasters


and hope for a better world
but work for it as well
you cannot see the blue skies of Alberta
digging in a pit with the bodies of strangers all around
you must decide to do what small works
that you are able to do
and then looking
neither to the right
nor to the left
you begin the work
that you don't know how to do
others will come
to help you out
they will summon up their small cache of energy
to tell you the way    then magical events will happen
for when you work hard the wheel of fortune turns
and you receive what you never expected

and hope for a better world
but work for it as well
the players will do what they will
to further the corruption of our society
the leaders will open and close their mouths
like fish in a fish bowl
the followers will follow
as the cloned cells of a monolayer that will never alter
but adhere to the same surface of conformity
only a few citizens will be brave
and alter what is by their sacrifices
the masses are stupid
and addicted to debt
the media panders to their stupidity
every level of government is dumbed down machinery
we have the quality control leaders lauding their own failures
to provide oversight   as is the AER so is the AHS
and only one thing is evident to me
we have criminals in charge
of the justice system


and hope for a better world
but work for it as well
never give up hope
speak up when required
and then act in the family for change
your children can be the change that you are looking for
show them the traps
that are laid for them
and ask them to work hard
for those among us who are defeated and maimed
tell them the way to freedom
is in their brains
and in their mouths
tell them that deferred gratification is ignored
by the society
but it is a discipline
worth courting
teach them that the one they live with is the one they should love
tell them what they do to others
is what will be done to them

 - ClassTechTips.comCurious Words is a visual storytelling app from the makers of Oh No Fractions! and Curious Ruler.  Random words stimulate the child to explore the world around them, illustrating such words with what they see. Instead of drawing the word with a still picture, they can shoot a one second video – just the right length to capture a gesture, a movement, a shadow, or a smile.  A final movie is assembled with voice over and music once the child has “illustrated” up to 12 words.  The final results are unique mini films that capture the way a child sees the world.

Social Networks In Healthcare: Breaking Down Barriers To Change

Social Networks In Healthcare: Breaking Down Barriers To Change | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

As U.S. hospitals, professionals, and patients from coast to coast grapple with a daunting maize of healthcare challenges that’s growing more complex each day, it’s easy to forget that the solutions we need might just be sitting in someone else’s back yard.  And no matter who might own those great ideas, harvesting their value depends upon finding the best ways to share and make the most of them.

Both of these themes were at the heart of an exceptional two-day event I attended in Copenhagen recently, hosted by Healthcare DENMARK.  Called “The Ambassadors’ Summit,” each participant was invited to attend based upon his or her lifetime healthcare-industry contributions.  The Summit provided our group the opportunity to compare ideas and benchmark best practices with peers from around the world.  And while every national representative had something valuable to offer, some of the best thinking came directly from our hosts themselves.

Denmark has long stood out among nations for its health system, which is differentiated by its fundamental focus on the patient.  The Danish system functions by placing the patient in the center of its care-delivery circle.  Patients’ involvement in their own care is essential for the system to work.  And while few argue that patients should have a greater say in their own care, in Denmark they really do.

Because the Danes have made healthcare a true national – not political — priority, there’s a team mentality country-wide to support it – to improve it continuously over time.  It was this commitment that led Healthcare DENMARK to hold the Summit in the first place: they recognized that every country around the world has its own best practices to offer for consideration.  For example, Summit Ambassadors from Germany brought participants their expertise in international healthcare systems, managed care, integrated care, secure data transfer, and theoretic medicine, among others.  Colleagues from the United Kingdom shared insights from their roles in organizations like the World Health Care Congress and in subject areas such as healthcare analytics and health system financing, to name a few.

At the end of the Summit, we all agreed to return a year from now having advanced our own care systems by harnessing and developing the rich ideas we’d shared in just 48 hours.  Easily said, but what will prove the best means of connecting all the ideas in all those back yards?  The answer is social media used smartly – in a way that establishes closely defined social networks that engage communities interested in solving very specific problems.

As I left the Summit, I could already envision a new group of social communities that could invite the participation of the leaders who contributed so much to the Ambassadors Summit – effectively creating real-time conversations around the key issues that concerned each one of us.  For example, we could launch a new community with a “Danish voice” to advance our nation’s work to increase patient centricity.  Another smart social network could consider the construction of new hospitals and the consolidation of existing ones.  Other smart social healthcare communities could focus on medical homes, the roles of primary-care physicians, and the true connectivity of personal health records.

The possibilities are energizing because they are so clearly within our reach.  With the smart use of social platforms, global boundaries lose relevance, great meetings like the Ambassadors Summit never have to adjourn, and our power to drive a world of better care increases exponentially.

When I met Bill Clinton for the 1st time I felt that not only did he care about me as a person, but that he wanted to learn everything he could about appreciative inquiry in the first five minutes. That's what great leaders do. They are fascinated. They glance around them with delight. There is joy in learning and surfacing the best each person has to offer. And they thrill to surprise. Bill Clinton has a startlingly simple secret to success: the former president gives everyone he meets his full, undivided attention. Countless anecdotes about Clinton suggest that his legendary charisma stems from the full focus he gives to every person he meets, and it's made him one of the greatest political communicators in recent history. Clinton was known, during his early career, for connecting with the people he was leading, looking them in the eye, and listening to what they had to say. He embodied an important trait of great natural leaders: They genuinely care about others, and no matter how busy they are, they always give people the time of day. "All my life I’ve been interested in other people’s stories," Clinton wrote in his autobiography My Life. "I wanted to know them, understand them, feel them." Clinton's superior powers of attention only highlight to our larger cultural "attention deficit" that can have a significant negative impact on the way we communicate and interact with others. Paying attention to people might not sound too difficult, but consider how often we actually do this. Technology has contributed to a decline of eye contact, and multitasking has become so much the norm that we often check our email or text while conversing with others. Even when we're not multitasking, research suggests that we only give people roughly a third of our attention -- but a great leader knows that everyone they work with deserves more than that.

What Leaders Should Learn from Fiction Writers

What Leaders Should Learn from Fiction Writers | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it
Managing employees has a lot more in common with the way writers develop fiction characters than you might have thought.

 

Now here's an interesting article! Basically it encourages leaders to ask the same questions regarding their employees as writers do when developing characters.

 

Why? Because employee engagement is at an all-time low according to the articles I regularly scan. Perhaps following the advice here will help leaders connect.

 

What's the best way to connect with staff? Through conversational story sharing.

 

Don't you just love cross-fertilization?!

 

Anyway, the article makes great points about reflecting on employee wants, obstacles, and what the leaders's role is in helping them.

 

And of course, the critical skills of listening, and then coaching.

 

Reflection, and both the asking of questions and listening, requires leaders take time out for all three -- and that is tough to do, no question. But if you can, you may be amazed with the results!

Empathy programs help students try a little tenderness | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it
Empathy programs have kids beginning to look beyond the surface and not judge others. It's part of a nationwide effort.

 

The push to make students more empathetic is part of a 10-year effort within schools nationally to combat school violence and bullying, both physical and emotional. Many districts are turning to in-class and after-school empathy programs to build students' "emotional intelligence." The goal for many, in addition to curbing online taunts and fighting, is to create environments more open to learning.

In Hillsborough, students at Metropolitan Ministries Partnership School, Potter Elementary School, Just Elementary and Booker T. Washington Elementary School learn to manage negative feelings, like fear and anger, and not act on impulse.
