A glance at today’s headlines leaves little doubt that we have entered a new era of geopolitical turbulence. Acts of terror and violence, humanitarian crises, and public health emergencies are rarely localized events. Instead, these shocks transcend borders, presenting global challenges. Just as one crisis fades, another rises to take its place.

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.

How Should Professional Development Change?

How Should Professional Development Change? | Professional Learning Communities - Leadership | Scoop.it
Professional Development in Other Countries
The Shanghai teacher and Singapore teacher ratios of teaching time to collaboration time reveal even larger disparities. The Shanghai teacher reported teaching 15 hours a week and collaborating 7.5 hours a week. The Singapore teacher spends 18 hours teaching and 15 hours collaborating each week. Spending so much time collaborating with other teachers every week is not a reality for U.S. teachers who feel lucky to chat with their colleagues at lunch or in biweekly faculty meetings.

The differences in professional development systems do not end here though. In Singapore, teachers are expected to do 100 hours of professional development (paid by the ministry of education) every year. That would be 500 hours in five years. In Shanghai, teachers are expected to do a minimum of 360 hours of professional development every five years -- compare that to the mere 120 hours of professional development that is typically required of U.S. teachers every five years.

(From the article): Becoming a Transformational Leader can be hard work. Why? Because it involves dealing with people. Sure. You are still accountable for results, but as a leader you need to get them in an entirely different way than you did as an individual contributor. Being an effective leader means that you need to spend a significant time helping your Team members by being a good coach, motivator and strategic planner.

Social Technology and the Changing Context of Leadership

Social Technology and the Changing Context of Leadership | Professional Learning Communities - Leadership | Scoop.it

Social technologies with their inherent democratic, anti-hierarchical quality easily transcend internal and external boundaries, suddenly creating a powerful thrust for horizontal collaboration and participation. They give each and every member of an organization a creative voice and enable real-time virtual connectivity in a way we have never seen before. This makes them a great catalyst for the organizational principles that are required by the new leadership context of the 21st century.

Planning for Professional Development can be a tricky proposition. As an “administrator” you’re responsible for being an instructional leader for your staff and you’re trying to find something that they’ll find interesting, engaging, useful and more while trying to balance costs and hours and available days in your calendar. The focus on teaching and learning can become lost in the hustle and bustle of running a school every day.  So can the pursuit of great professional learning opportunities for teachers who are passionate about their craft and looking to you for leadership.

Smart Leaders Are OK with Seeming Uncertain

Smart Leaders Are OK with Seeming Uncertain | Professional Learning Communities - Leadership | Scoop.it

Though it may be particularly hard for leaders to embrace uncertainty after years of being taught to display confidence, there is a clear business benefit in doing so. Research has shown that over-confident CEOs make overly risky decisions, often at the expense of their shareholders. Leaders who are able to come to terms with uncertainty and communicate it to employees may avoid such bad decisions.

It's amazing how difficult it is for people to use the phrases:"I don't know", "I need help", or "I was wrong".


But who would you rather work with or for...

1. Someone who, faced with a challenge they don't understand, pretends to know the answers (to give you confidence in their leadership)....or...

2. Someone who asks for your help when they  recognise they are in a situation that is beyond their level of competence?


Knowing (and admitting) when you're incompetent - perhaps the most important leadership competence!

David Foster Wallace on Leadership

David Foster Wallace on Leadership | Professional Learning Communities - Leadership | Scoop.it

“A leader’s real ‘authority’ is a power you voluntarily give him, and you grant him this authority not with resentment or resignation but happily.”

 

In a culture that calls pop culture celebrities “thought-leaders” and looks for “leadership ability” in kindergartners, we’re left wondering what leadership actually means and questioning what makes a great leader.

 

The best definition of the essence beneath the leadership buzzword comes from David Foster Wallace.

Collaborative, cooperative and hierarchical leadership

Collaborative, cooperative and hierarchical leadership | Professional Learning Communities - Leadership | Scoop.it

As to whether collaborative, cooperative, hierarchical, partner or shareholder owned models are superior? I think that’s a red herring. There are exemplary models of both, but that’s a red herring too. What we need to aim for are authentic models of leadership based on both formal and social power. Formal power is granted through hierarchy, social power through community. One is positional, the other consensual. In the Social Age, we operate in both spaces, for work and play.
