Servant Leadership: A Path to High Performance

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 29, 2013 4:36 AM


Leadership means many things to business owners, and many believe that to be a great leader, they must be charismatic, have a commanding presence, be a visionary and also be well educated at a top school.


Unfortunatly, if they do not fit this mold, many business owners see the leadership role as not being an area in which they can make a huge difference to their businesses.


This excellent article, dispells this widely held belief and suggests that servant leadership is displayed by the most successful leaders, few of whom display the common traits believed to be displayed by great leaders.

Teacher Appreciation: Why We Teach

Teacher Appreciation: Why We Teach | Education | Scoop.it
“All good teaching originates from the motive of generosity. To help others understand history, literature, mathematics or science is the ground upon which all learning stands. Fundamentally, education is the transmission of wisdom from one scholar to another.”"Withitness"Similarly, in her book What Keeps Teachers Going, Sonia Nieto states that a successful teacher is one who places a high value on students' culture, race, language, gender, experiences, families and sense of self. These teachers sustain high expectations of all students, especially for those whom others may have given up on. They stay committed in spite of predictable obstacles and create a safe classroom haven for their students.By being resilient, by challenging the status quo of educational bureaucracy, and by viewing themselves as life-long learners, they come to care about, respect and love their students. To understand your own motivation to teach, you explore your own history of learning. Nieto says it is the "experiences, identities, values, beliefs, attitudes, hangups, biases, wishes, dreams and hopes" that make teachers successful. She has her teachers write about those experiences that influenced them to become teachers.It is only by mining their own influences they can begin to understand what motivated them to become a teacher in the first place. So teaching becomes a career-long process of uncovering both your own and others' stories.
