Although this article is written with a business slant, it can definitely be applied to the world of education.  The author stresses that, in today's world, people need to be told WHY they are doing something in addition to doing it.  This would seem especially important in the world of education, where Common Core is emphasizing WHY  students are doing the things they do.  Should we not be modeling ourselves what we are expecting from our students?  As a future administrator, these "new school" practices are very valuable, especially this one:  "It is no longer enough to be visible. Watching and listening, engaging in conversation, implementing the ideas presented to you, and distributing the results" are all things that administrators should be doing in order to do the job well.

Over the past several years I have learned the importance of mentoring as a leadership skill through my principal mentoring me.  He has done many of the things the article lists: encouraged and motivated me, shared his knowledge and experience, contributed to my growth and success, challenged me, added to my sense of contribution, and contributed toward my career goals. As cheesy as it sounds, I honestly would not be an aspiring administrator today if it were not for him taking the time to invest in me as a future leader.  I hope to be able to do the same for others one day as a school leader myself.  The best schools are those who grow their own leaders and continue achieving success, even when leadership changes.

I chose this article because it breaks down the various roles administrators play within the school, and highlights how complex and non-binary being a school leader is.

I hope this would assist others in realizing the many aspects of leadership that go into being a school administrator, and maintaining the role of a dynamic leader.

"As a leader, how do you judge which learning modality will lead to the most effective, quality learning experience? How do you appeal to learners on your teams at differing levels of technological savviness?"  This is an excellent article on leading your teachers to effectively use technology.  The key steps of understanding how your team learns, determining their favorite modalities, and then selecting limited options are sound advice for a leader.  Administrators deal with an unbelievable number of tasks and expectations, and among those is integrating technology into their schools.  To someone who is most definitely not a tech expert, these three simple steps provide a great place to start.  I will most certainly be referring to this article again in the future.

7 Ways To Practice Mindfulness In The Age Of Technology

7 Ways To Practice Mindfulness In The Age Of Technology | Educational Leadership in Michigan | Scoop.it
Technology is here to stay. Why not embrace it and use it to raise our levels of presence? We can do this by tuning into our breath, our feelings and bodily sensations. This lets us know how we are relating to technology in the moment.

(From the article): Here are seven ways you can practice mindfulness with your technology platforms. Try these practices as an experiment to raise your own awareness. Refrain from judging yourself or being too harsh about how these practices work for you. These exercises are intended to raise awareness by simply being aware.

Create Wise Leader's comment, January 16, 2013 7:57 AM
Some great practices to help ensure our technological gadgets serve us rather than the other way round.
Annette Schmeling's curator insight, January 16, 2013 12:14 PM

Technology can be an anxiety-producing energy depending on our approach. How we discipline ourselves and think about the daily onslaught of e-mail, voicemail, and text messages impacts how much we are truly connected or disconnected in our life. Mindfulness practices recommended in this article are very practical and impacts the quality of connections between people and their capacity to feel seen, heard and valued.
