It's Not Teacher Quality Or Class Size, It's Leadership That Makes Schools Successful

It's Not Teacher Quality Or Class Size, It's Leadership That Makes Schools Successful | Leadership | Scoop.it
The X-factor in education has proved elusive, but a new study shows that one candidate is so far head and shoulders above the rest.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Jerry Busone's insight:

love tis and it translate well into corporations. heres a quote for the story "Some of what makes a leader successful, and of what makes a school effective, is intangible, and it is important not to fall into the trap of valuing it just because we can measure it." You cannot measure success in everything sometimes the feedback you receive is enough.

Reflection for Resilience

Reflection for Resilience | Leadership | Scoop.it


Resiliency is about handling stress, uncertainty and setbacks well — in other words, maintaining equilibrium under pressure.


And in our modern lives, whether we are at school, at work, or at home, there is no shortage of pressure.


Maintaining our equilibrium is something, it seems, we all need these days.


There is something you can do — everyday if you would like — to help build your resilience, your capacity to weather stressful events.


It's journalling.


Keeping a journal can foster resiliency.


CCL recommends using "learning journals" or "reflection journals" as tools for gaining insight into your leadership experiences.


The process of writing and reflection builds self-awareness, encourages learning and opens the door to adaptability.


The form and content of your journal is a matter of individual choice. However, when you do sit down to make a journal entry about an experience that has challenged your equilibrium, we recommend it have three parts:



✤ The event or experience.

Describe what occurred as objectively as possible.

Don't use judgmental language.

Stick to the facts.

What happened?

Who was involved?

When did it happen?

Where did it happen?



✤ Your reaction.

Describe your reaction to the event as factually and objectively as possible.

What did you want to do in response to the event?

What did you actually do?

What were your thoughts?

What were your feelings?



✤ The lessons.

Think about the experience and your reaction to it.

What did you learn from the event and from your reaction to it?

Did the event suggest a development need you should address?

Do you see a pattern in your reactions?

Did you react differently than in the past during similar experiences and does that suggest you are making progress or backsliding on a valuable leadership competency?



So remember, capture the event or experience in objective language, describe your reaction, then note the lessons you might get from it.


CCL uses journaling as part of almost all our leadership development program experiences and we emphasize with our participants that learning doesn't come from the "doing" but in the "reflecting on the doing."

I find it hard to spend the time on making a journal work. I suspect it is because I have not thought about resilience and reaction to situations. The short lists here provide a useful guide - and by focusing on my reaction I can give my self a chance to use demanding events/situations more productively.

The ART Of Collaboration (Collaborative Behaviours)

The ART Of Collaboration (Collaborative Behaviours) | Leadership | Scoop.it
If people are given the right tools and the right environment, will they spontaneously collaborate and share knowledge? Why do some people find it difficult to share and collaborate? Would incentives and rewards make a difference?


Collaboration in the workplace is now high on the priority list of many organisations seeking to leverage social technologies to free-up knowledge and provide opportunities for co-creation, co-production and innovation.


Gust MEES: I was one of the TOP10 Knol authors (Google Knol discontinued its service as on May 1, 2012) and I was involved in a lot of collaborative articles with multicultural authors and it was a very positive experience... I hope one day having the same opportunity back again on WordPress now...


One of our "old knols" (created on  November 02, 2010 [we were pioneers]) is being migrated to WordPress here if you would like to check it:

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Leadership | Scoop.it

Teachers who work silently, don’t tweet, blog and discuss ideas with people around the world are obsolete. Teachers are no longer working locally but globally and it’s our job to share what we do and see what others are doing. If a teacher is no longer learning then he shouldn’t be teaching other people.

We should all be tweeting, blogging and sharing what works and doesn’t work, get and give advice to and from co-workers around the world. We should constantly be improving our craft because professional development isn’t a 3 hour workshop once a month but a lifelong process.

We do not learn from experience…we learn from reflecting on experience.” -John Dewey

Presentation & Motivation Zen: Sir Ken Robinson Gives Best Talk Yet, TED & Education

Presentation & Motivation Zen: Sir Ken Robinson Gives Best Talk Yet, TED & Education | Leadership | Scoop.it

Creativity and education expert Sir Ken Robinson delivered two amazingly popular TED Talks prior to his newest, and what could be his best to date in 2013.


Excerpted from a Garr Reynolds post:


Good presentation is a balance of information, persuasion, and inspiration... [to] light a spark and point the way.




His first talk http://bit.ly/1fjhkH6 —presented sans multimedia in the true Sir Ken Robinson style — was made in 2006 and is the most viewed TED talk of all time.


His follow-up talk given in 2010 http://bit.ly/1f6zZp2 also has been downloaded millions of times.


I have seen Sir Ken speak many times and he is always inspiring and engaging, but his latest TED talk, http://bit.ly/IEXH0Q presented at TED Talks Education in April of this year, is my favorite yet.

Good presentation is a balance of information, persuasion, and inspirationPresentations related to leadership must necessarily light a spark and point the way


Sir Ken does not scream or jump up and down but he nonetheless ignites, provokes, and inspires his live audience, and anyone else who cares to listen to his presentation on line, in a meaningful and memorable way.


Millions of people have seen his latest talk, but just in case you have not, please set aside about 20 minutes to watch this outstanding, short TED talk."
