Bullying Persists Despite School Efforts

Bullying Persists Despite School Efforts | Making a difference | Scoop.it
The most thorough analysis to date of studies on school bullying has found that K-12 schools’ attempts to curb bullying behavior have accomplished little.

Betty Skeet's insight:

So far all efforts to curb bullying behaviour at school seem to have achieved very little...what then?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 7, 2014 8:13 PM

Bullying persists, because students see it acted on in many adult-to-adult relationships. These models lead students to believe that bullying is OK.

6 Ways Beloved Leaders Demonstrate Strength and Empathy

6 Ways Beloved Leaders Demonstrate Strength and Empathy | Making a difference | Scoop.it

Insensitive leaders are tolerated in good times but only empathetic leaders can be confident the team will rally in crisis.

 

Often I am asked if empathy is a desirable leadership trait. My response is always emphatically “yes!”. Empathetic leaders motivate others by cultivating relationships.

 

In this Harvard Business Review article, theHappy Warrior is the leader who combines empathy and strength. However, it’s a rare breed of leader who does this intuitively.

 

Leaders naturally fall into one of two categorizes -- task-focused leaders (warrior) or people-focused leaders (happy).

 

Task-focused leaders score high on strength. Strength is the nuts and bolts of leadership. It’s the determination and perseverance needed to set a vision into motion and achieve results.

 

People-focused leaders score high on empathy. They exude warmth and understanding, the human side of leadership. This is how they connect and build rapport with others.

Your body language shapes who you are

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Non verbal expressions are vital for teachers to engage students. This great video by Amy Cuddy explores the wonderful emotions and expressions that inspire confidence and power.  Interesting research for leadership in education.
