Ce schéma, que je vous invite à regarder non pas autour du thème du "leader" mais du "professionnel" que vous êtes, rejoint une démarche centrale de ma pratique au quotidien : commencer par avoir une vision, une vision partagée, pour aligner son "système, puis compléter/enrichir ses talents, respecter les 4 C (Communication, Collaboration, Esprit Critique, Créativité), donner du soutien dans l'action, s'améliorer et innover !

When School Leaders Empower Teachers, Better Ideas Emerge - Mind/Shift

When School Leaders Empower Teachers, Better Ideas Emerge - Mind/Shift | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
Teachers are increasingly being pushed into new roles as their ability to connect online opens up new opportunities. Educators are finding their own professional development, sharing lesson plans and teaching tips with colleagues around the world, and have often become ambassadors to the public on new approaches to teaching and learning. Easy access to information has empowered many educators to think and teach differently, but often those innovations remain isolated inside classrooms. Without a school leader who trusts his or her teachers, it is difficult to convert pockets of innovation into a school culture of empowered teachers.

Change Management Requires Leadership Clarity and Alignment

Change Management Requires Leadership Clarity and Alignment | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
Change management is in full-force across all industries, yet many leaders are unprepared to act upon and operationalize the requirements for change to avoid business disruption. For many organizations, preparedness begins at the top and this means that leadership – across all levels – must have absolute clarity in purpose and focus; there also must be alignment in strategic philosophy and resolution goals.

Unfortunately, many organizations are slow to change as the internal politics makes it difficult to reach consensus across all levels of leadership – even when the necessity for change is urgent. This is why many companies unknowingly lose momentum as they fail to change fast enough -- allowing the marketplace and competitors to pass them by. The result: valuable time is misspent, resources applied and money invested without the required outcomes to stay competitive, keep clients satisfied and employees engaged.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

 

#leadership #management #business

donhornsby's curator insight, May 22, 2014 9:14 AM

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. 

 

 

(From the article): As leaders, you must begin to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to see the opportunities previous unseen.   Leadership requires you to have circular vision and when you begin to grow complacent, you only see the obvious details before you – rather than those they lie around, beneath and beyond what you seek.  In fact, your mindset becomes stagnate because you are not stretching your perspectives enough to see more than you want to.

 

When you fall into this trap, it’s time to reshuffle the deck, and map out the internal and external factors that are influencing your thinking. You must begin to identify areas that can be improved –  such as relationships, workshop culture, networking, how you are investing in yourself (or lack thereof), etc.

 

It’s not experience, but rather opportunity that is the true mother of success.   Be more mindful about how you manage opportunity before it begins to manage you.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 2014 10:41 AM

The first lesson is a good place to begin. We become so busy we do not look up and from side-to-side. Leaders need to be present and aware of what is happening and not happening. They need to be aware of who is best served to take the reins in a given situation.

 

In School, leadership and management should be intertwined. Quite often, I found that the latter was used almost exclusively and leadership did not exist.

20 Simple Assessment Strategies You Can Use Every Day - te@chthought

20 Simple Assessment Strategies You Can Use Every Day - te@chthought | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it

"The ultimate goal of teaching is understanding. But sometimes it’s easier to talk than to teach, as we all know, especially when we need to cover a lot of material in a short amount of time. We hope students will understand, if not now then before test time, and we keep our fingers crossed that their results will indicate we’ve done our job. The problem is, we often rely on these tests to measure understanding and then we move on. There isn’t always time to address weaknesses and misunderstandings after the tests have been graded, and by that time it’s too late for students to be interested.

 

Below are 22 simple assessment strategies and tips to help you become more frequent in your teaching, planning, and curriculum design."

(From the article) The Blind CC. Imagine this . . . Someone sends an email to a group and bcc’s someone. Then the bcc’er replies to all, not noticing that they were blind-copied. If you were on the To: or CC: lines, wouldn’t you immediately wonder why the other person was bcc’d to start with? And more importantly, wouldn’t you start to wonder how many times the original person sends emails to you and they are bcc’ing someone else? We all want leaders who are transparent, authentic and genuine – and it seems to me that using the bcc flies in the face of that goal. There might be a time to email something separately to someone and give them additional information or perspective, but why make it a blind copy leaving everyone at risk for miscommunication and misunderstanding?

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, June 26, 2014 8:45 AM

Trust is the key to building genuine relationships and without it, performance, productivity and loyalty will suffer.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, July 25, 2014 11:26 AM

These days, "trust", "authentic" and "genuine" seem to be turning into buzz words. This though provoking article leads us to look beyond the current culture and examine our actions.

 

From the article:

 

In the end, the other person decides if you are worthy of their trust based on their view of your intent, not your actual intent.

 

One way to read this would be to nod your head and agree, thinking about the people these behaviors remind you of.

 

A much better way to read this would be to reflect on how those behaviors impacted your trust and relationship with those people and then ask yourself the harder question – how often am I compromising trust by doing these things or things like them?

Quote from the author: "In an era of flatter, networked organizations and cross-cutting teams of knowledge workers, it’s not always obvious who exactly is following (or, for that matter, who exactly is leading) and how they are going about it. Reporting relationships are shifting, and new talent-management tools and approaches are constantly emerging.

So it stands to reason its not about the tools they will change overnight but its understanding what you people need and that requires you understand how people follow .

Charney Coaching & Consulting's curator insight, May 21, 2014 9:31 AM

The typical process with both assessments/performance reviews and coaching is to use each independently. The former becomes an annual event tied more to reward rather than growth, and the latter becomes a tool for "developmental" situations (a poor euphemism for low performance).

 

However, when the two are combined, we have a state-of-the-art practice we call Assessment-Based Coaching. This approach truly creates a "whole-is-greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts" situation.

 

We have since released a White Paper on the topic: Growing and Developing Talent through Assessment-Based Coaching is now available for free, for anyone interested in the topic.

Church leaders - Pastors, especially!!!  -- need to pay careful attention to this critical part of growing your ministry.  DELEGATION builds the team, makes the Pastor more effective-- not only because many hands lighten the load, but equally true that the reallocation of time and internal peace is what many Pastors need to remain revitalized, effective, and not burned out.  Trust in your team is what builds a great organization!
