Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 28, 4:32 PM

Our students of poverty enter school behind and by the time they are in middle school, the achievement gap has widened.  Often the answer is to remove the struggling students from electives and place them in remediation courses for math or reading, robbing them of the rich contribution arts makes to the lives of middle and upper class children. Innovation must guide our efforts to close the gap, providing not just remediation but enrichment to our children of poverty.

Your Team Can’t Read Your Mind

Your Team Can’t Read Your Mind | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

When you live or work with people for a while, it’s easy to assume that they can read your mind and that you can read theirs. Whether it’s a spouse or a long-time team member, you may presume that you know what they’re thinking and that you can save time and effort by not having to spell everything out. Unfortunately, though, mind reading is a risky short cut, and is more likely to backfire than not.

donhornsby's curator insight, July 27, 10:17 AM

(From the article): Creating workplace collaboration isn’t as simple as just telling employees to work together. Instead, managers must give their teams specific tools, then oversee how they are being used.


“We often tell people to work together, but we don’t tell them how,” said E Allan Lind, professor of leadership at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, North Carolina. “First, we have to be mindful that people working together is not a normal state of things.”

 

Managers must show how good ideas come out of working together. They must also demonstrate that real collaboration equals innovation, and be on the watch for communication breakdowns.

Experts say there's not enough emphasis on the role of K-12 schools when it comes to stopping sexual violence."

"As colleges and universities have come under heightened scrutiny in recent years, higher education administrators have grumbled privately that rape prevention efforts need to begin at a younger age -- that it is unrealistic to expect to stamp out sexual assault during freshman orientation. And indeed, that argument is validated by a swath of research.

Jessica Leigh's comment, July 27, 6:08 PM
“Treat others the way you would want to be treated.” This is very accurate as the describe how the attitude and work ethic of an entire company can start with the boss. Why would anyone give their best effort when their boss doesn’t give them that respect? The effort he/she gives is the effort they will receive back. This may also apply to the police force. If the captain of a station gives his/her officers a hard time about quotas, they might do the bare minimum because the captain is only concerned with numbers. If we want our employees to be great, then they need to be treated as such.

4 Critical Needs of High Performing Teams

4 Critical Needs of High Performing Teams | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Without a doubt, you have put effort into trying to motivate and inspire your team to perform at a high level. But even the best managers and leaders get stuck from time to time on how to instill these qualities into their team. No doubt, team members have struggled to display these qualities.


When initiative, productivity, creativity and execution are lacking, the costs to the team can be very real. The tangible results can be a lackluster product or service, subpar customer service, team members finding it difficult to work with each other, a leader struggling to get vital feedback. This costs your company, your department, your team and you revenue and reputation.

The decision to deploy the devices followed an incident in which a Burlington Community School District middle school principal was wrongly accused of kicking a student. Security camera footage later exonerated the administrator, according to the Des Moines Register.

10 things everyone should know about great school leaders | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Like in other professions, there are innate leaders: those who just take that step out in front of the rest and hold the torch. For others, leadership does not necessarily come naturally. It is a skill that develops over time with lessons being learnt along the way. We are all human ultimately, striving to do the best we can. Having had the priviledge to meet and get to know some truly amazing leaders, there are certain traits that they all share. There is a thread of gold that runs through them all, making them shine.

For Leaders, What Does Caring about Others Look Like?

I know a leader who doesn’t care about her staff. She genuinely believes that workplace relationships should be all business. She doesn’t talk about her family, her hobbies, her past or her personal life. She doesn’t ask others about theirs. She compartmentalizes her life, and she wishes everyone else would do the same. A few members of her team are okay with this. They stick to business-only conversations and understand that even the most innocuous questions like “how was your weekend?” are to be avoided. Most of the team, however, feel this leader is uncaring. Several have left for this reason alone.

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Ambiverts have introverted and extroverted traits, but neither trait is dominant. As a result, they have more balanced, or nuanced, personalities. They aren’t the folks yammering your ear off. Nor are they the totally silent ones happily ensconced in the corner.

Ambiverts move between being social or being solitary, speaking up or listening carefully with greater ease than either extroverts or introverts. “It is like they’re bilingual,” says Daniel Pink, a business book author and co-host of Crowd Control, a TV series on human behavior, who has studied ambiversion. “They have a wider range of skills and can connect with a wider range of people in the same way someone who speaks English and Spanish can.”
