The 5 Caring Qualities of a Mindful Teacher | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
In his practical guide for cultivating attention, compassion, and well-being, Daniel outlines the five key qualities he believes define the mindful teacher.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

The first one is key. Robert Greenleaf pointed out compassion and passion come from the same etymology which has to do with suffering. The prefix com- means to do so together.

Excellent reminders of what is important about being a teacher. I feel fortunate to be around so many instructors who care deeply about their students learning and success...

It's almost impossible to not get caught in the distraction trap. Everywhere we turn something is waving at us, something is pleading for our attention and focus.


Take a moment (yes I'm waving for your attention) to read this post, you'll be glad you did.

Breaks Are Good For Business

Breaks Are Good For Business | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Leadership- you must talk the walk. There are big benefits to structured breaks. Employees refresh and recharge, they're more creative, focussed & engaged.

Via Bobby Dillard
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Breaks are healthy. It is actually on breaks from "real work" that many breakthroughs happen. Students benefit from these when done well.
