Why Leaders Are Poor Communicators

Why Leaders Are Poor Communicators | Leadership, Technology and Learning | Scoop.it
If you know a bad leader, chances are he or she is also a poor communicator. Here are the reasons why our leaders don't improve in communications -- even though we all know it's a critical part of the role.

Oh dear... as a leader you have to be a great story teller and motivator and that goes nowhere without communications.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 14, 2014 10:27 AM

(From the Article)  Leaders can find it simpler to avoid communicating, at least until they have everything figured out. So they retrench and put off connecting on key issues, which can quickly get out regardless as rumors. Or they rely on email or other written communications that, while better than nothing, can leave employees with more questions than answers.


Leaders, like all of us, want to do the activities that they feel good and successful at doing. Communications can be difficult to get right, and though important, all too easy to avoid – especially when you get to call the shots.

How BYOD Programs Can Fuel Inquiry Learning

How BYOD Programs Can Fuel Inquiry Learning | Leadership, Technology and Learning | Scoop.it
The opportunity to extend access to technology in the classroom and at home is enticing, but school districts can get hung up on important details like providing a strong network, making sure each child has a device, and questions about around distraction. Of course, no one answer will work for all teachers or students, but one guiding principle that's shown to work is for schools to focus on how mobile technology will help shift instruction to be more collaborative, learner-driven and inquiry-based.

The approach used by Dave Brailsford and Team Sky is one strategy for managing complexity. Instead of focusing on the whole, complex problem, they looked for marginal improvements in many areas. 


The aggregate of these small changes created a significant performance improvement.

Some really good thoughts! We certainly do need to change the way we use software/apps and allow students to have greater power in deciding which apps to use and how they use them. As teachers, we are not always the expert on how to use apps!
