30 Habits Of Highly Effective Teachers

30 Habits Of Highly Effective Teachers | Leadership | Scoop.it
If you ask a student what makes him or her successful in school, you probably won’t hear about some fantastic new book or video lecture series. Most likely you will hear something like, “It was all Mr. Jones. He just never gave up on me.”

What students take away from a successful education usually centers on a personal connection with a teacher who instilled passion and inspiration for their subject. It’s difficult to measure success, and in the world of academia, educators are continually re-evaluating how to quantify learning. But the first and most important question to ask is:

Are teachers reaching their students? Here are 25 things successful educators do differently.

John Michel's curator insight, August 10, 2013 11:57 AM

As the saying goes, great leaders are born, not made. Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, and Nelson Mandela may have had brains that were wired differently, according to a new study. In particular, they had more gray matter in the parts of their minds that control decision making and memory, which could account for their superior leadership skills.

How and Why to Be a Leader (Not a Wannabe)

How and Why to Be a Leader (Not a Wannabe) | Leadership | Scoop.it

We need a new generation of leaders. And we need it now. We're in the midst of a Great Dereliction — a historic failure of leadership, precisely when we need it most. Hence it's difficult, looking around, to even remember what leadership is.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, July 8, 2013 3:13 PM

Excerpt from Umair's blog post: 


We're surrounded by people who are expert at winning — elections, deals, titles, bonuses, bailouts, profit. And often, we're told: they're the ones we should look up to — because it's the spoils and loot that really matter.


But you know and I know: mere winners are not true leaders — not just because gaming broken systems is nothing but an empty charade of living; but because life is not a game. It isn't about what you have, and how much — but what you do, and why — if you're to live a life that matters.

Don Cloud's curator insight, August 29, 2013 11:32 PM

Here's a question (asked several different ways) every leader should be able to answer (and if you can't then perhaps this is something you need to think long and hard about).

 

What is your "why"?  That is, "why" do you want to lead?  What is your personal leadership purpose?  What is your individual purpose in leading?

 

If you can't answer the question of your own "why", then you may find it extremely difficult to create the "why" of your organization or understand the individual "why" of each of your people.

 

(Hint: As a leader, try to answer the question without referencing yourself)
