6 Ways For Leaders To Make Their Messages Resonate

6 Ways For Leaders To Make Their Messages Resonate | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
When you're truly invested in your message, you don't have to shout.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 4, 2015 9:41 AM

(From the article): To increase your chances of resonating, ask, "Is this the appropriate time to deliver this idea? Is there anything already being discussed that I can connect my own idea to in order to give it context?"


Your voice is your single greatest possession as a leader. It's what allows you to mobilize and direct your team, and ultimately it's how you build a body of work you can be proud of. If your work matters to you, make the effort to cultivate a voice that resonates, and you’ll find your influence multiplying in ways you never expected.

Katherine Bryant's curator insight, September 14, 2015 2:19 PM

Great summary here of how to truly communicate with your team. My favourite is the advice to "Be empathetic" : 

Decide to choose empathy over easier, short-cut optionsIdentify a time when you’ve experienced a similar eventRecall how that event affected you and relive the emotionsThen act based upon your newfound understanding

Taking a few moments before communicating an idea to walk through these four steps will help you connect more deeply with your team.

Joseph Palumbo, MBA,'s curator insight, September 14, 2015 8:56 PM

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.

Lorsque les élèves éprouvent de grandes difficultés à l'école, il est primordial de leur enseigner à développer un esprit de croissance personnelle axé sur les efforts et les défis personnels. Le concept de growth mindset est vraiment intéressant pour illustrer aux enfants que l'intelligence et le succès n'est pas fixe mais relié aux efforts aux tentatives et aux réajustements. Voir Carole DWECK l'auteure de ce concept.

The Power Of I Don’t Know - TeachThought

The Power Of I Don’t Know - TeachThought | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
A driving strategy that serves students–whether pursuing self-knowledge or academic content–is questioning. Questioning is useful as an assessment strategy, catalyst for inquiry, or “getting unstuck” tool. It can drive entire unit of instruction as an essential question. In other words, questions transcend content, floating somewhere between the students and their context.

Questions are more important than the answers they seem designed to elicit. The answer is residual–requires the student to package their content to please the question-maker, which moves the center of gravity from the student’s belly to the educator’s marking pen. In that light, I was interested when I found the visual above.

It’s okay to say “I don’t know.” Teach your students how to develop questions (because) it helps conquer their own confusion.

Rebeca Zuniga was inspired to create the above visual by the wonderful Heather Wolpert-Gawron (from the equally wonderful edutopia, and also her own site, tweenteacher). The whole graphic is wonderful, but it’s that I don’t know that really resonated with me. Traditionally, this phrase is seen as a hole rather than a hill. I don’t know means I’m missing information that I’m supposed to have.

(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?

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.
