Excellent argument and validation for Instructional Leaders to be at the forefront of the cutting edge in instruction.  That involves conceptual learning, instructional technology that redefines the learning, and quality instructional implementation both in classrooms and in professional development.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 10, 2014 4:39 PM

It is wise not to allow allow large dichotomies, perhaps false dichotomies to dominate this debate. Critical thinking, collaborative work and knowledge of content are all important and attainable for good teachers, as they have been. It is a matter of emphasis. Check

14 Signs You're Emotionally Intelligent

Annie M Herbert's curator insight, December 16, 2013 9:45 PM

Sounds like a great place to start students understanding what their emotional intelligence is.  Need to convince students that emotional intelligence makes a difference.

What a quote:

"Your ability to concentrate on the work you're doing or your schoolwork, and to put off looking at that text or playing that video game until after you're done ... how good you are at that in childhood turns out to be a stronger predictor of your financial success in adulthood than either your IQ or the wealth of the family you grew up in,"

Another great quote:

When an emotionally intelligent person experiences a failure or setback, he or she is able to bounce back quickly. This is in part because of the ability to mindfully experience negative emotions without letting them get out of control, which provides a higher degree of resilience.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 17, 2013 11:42 AM

What does it mean to be a great leader? I think it is sign of emotional intelligence and so hard to define.

How many of these signs do you see in those around you?

Great article...thank you for sharing with us Susan!

 

With the majority of the organizations that I work with the top execs still seem to have limited online presence.  It is true that are so busy keeping up with their operation, and prioritize the face-to-face as well as traditional methods.

 

Also, depending on the position -- they need to be careful on what they can post.  What advice do you have for the top level execs who do want to influence online without having to jump through hoops with PR/Marketing/Legal to approve their posts?

Find the Coaching in Criticism

Find the Coaching in Criticism | Metawriting | Scoop.it

Your growth depends on your ability to pull value from criticism in spite of your natural responses and on your willingness to seek out even more advice and coaching from bosses, peers, and subordinates.

 

They may be good or bad at providing it, or they may have little time for it—but you are the most important factor in your own development. If you’re determined to learn from whatever feedback you get, no one can stop you.

Note the emphasis on the person being coached having an actual role in finding coaching ... much different from the idea of passively receiving coaching ...

This is a pretty good article for teachers who are trying to divert from the traditional methods of leading the class. The main focus should be the steps given, which are easy to learn and broad enough to adapt any classroom. I would recommend others use this article as a guideline to how you should lead the class room. I like the idea of imagining the role as a "learner first."

Mission Critical: Championing-Empowering-Enabling Our Individual And Organizational Ability To Win

Mission Critical: Championing-Empowering-Enabling Our Individual And Organizational Ability To Win | Metawriting | Scoop.it

Change is not the obstacle, it is the answer.  Embracing our ability to champion positive change starts with a focus on the words we use.  Change is NOT difficult, it is our greatest power and hope for a better future.  Change is what our bodies and minds so every second of the day.

 

Our ability to move out of Jurassic Park by developing our individual and organization potential is real.  It requires focus, courage, integrity and a relentless desire to be part of the solution rather than running on overdrive, getting stuck in stasis or burying one’s head in the sand or under the rock of complacency.
