Leaders Need a Daily Reading Habit

Leaders Need a Daily Reading Habit | school improvement process | Scoop.it

Successful leaders have a daily reading habit.  It’s frequently said that those who lead, read. Research has shown that reading keeps leaders smart, creative and social. For those who want to lead, reading is not a nice to have or a luxury, reading is a habit successful leaders consider critical to their success.

Being Happy at Work Matters

Being Happy at Work Matters | school improvement process | Scoop.it

People used to believe that you didn’t have to be happy at work to succeed. And you didn’t need to like the people you work with, or even share their values. “Work is not personal,” the thinking went. This is bunk.  My research with dozens of companies and hundreds of people — as well as the research conducted by the likes of neuroscientists Richard Davidson and V.S. Ramachandran and scholars such as Shawn Achor — increasingly points to a simple fact: Happy people are better workers. Those who are engaged with their jobs and colleagues work harder — and smarter.

What Happens in Great Schools

What Happens in Great Schools | school improvement process | Scoop.it

After 40+ years of reporting about education, I am absolutely convinced that, in the very best schools, the students are the workers and the work they are doing is meaningful. What they do–their product–depends upon their ages and stages, but the concept doesn’t change. In these schools, teachers are conductors, directors, supervisors, guides or docents. This observation flies in the face of conventional wisdom, which holds that teachers are workers whose job is to produce capable students. That gets further bastardized when ‘capable’ is defined by test scores until we end up thinking, “The work of teachers is to add value, which is measured by higher te

Schools are not work places for students.That is part of a larger neo-liberal economic and political agenda. Schools are creative spaces where relationships emerge and curiosity fueled.

Leadership and Conflict: Deal With It Now or Pay For It Later

Leadership and Conflict: Deal With It Now or Pay For It Later | school improvement process | Scoop.it

It’s funny how some people are labeled or referred to as conflict – when in reality no one (in their right mind) would say they are conflict chasers. So now that I’ve merely reinforced what you already knew about conflict (that it stinks); why in the world am I writing about the importance of dealing with it? My answer is simple; dealing with conflict is a mandatory part of leadership.

Attributes Of Awesomely Great Leaders

Attributes Of Awesomely Great Leaders | school improvement process | Scoop.it

There are many attributes that leaders from all facets possess. A number of these attributes are positive and unfortunately some not so positive. Organizations, teams and people in general are always searching for desirable attributes in leaders they want to work for. Not only leaders they want to work for, but leaders who inspire them to work harder and faster all while developing their personal leadership.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 14, 2014 6:48 PM

Do you know that your brain may sabotage you? This posts looks at sixteen ways the brain may set "traps" that lead us astray. Additional resources are also listed in many of these "traps."

* Equating Knowing With Learning. It takes time for us to really "learn" something, which means we need to review this new information so we can move it from short-term storage to long-term storage.

* Being Biased Towards Ourselves. If you bomb a test or assignment do you tend to base blame on others? This is one example of being biased toward ourselves. We blame the book, teacher...the list could go on.

* Making Us Think We Can Multi-task. What happens when you multi-task? Your brain is quickly switching back and forth between multiple task your brain becomes overloaded and cannot perform at full capacity.

To read more about these three items, and learn about the other 13 ways your brain may try to trick you click through to the post.

Framing a Message about “Building Capacity”

Framing a Message about “Building Capacity” | school improvement process | Scoop.it

Let’s imagine you’re in a school where authentic assessment prevails, inquiry drives the professional learning process, and time for collaboration has been built into the day. That’s really exciting, but it may be hard to explain WHY it’s exciting to someone who’s not an educator.   And for most of us, who don’t teach in schools like the one just described, we need to be able to effectively communicate to people outside our classrooms exactly why school conditions like this – conditions that build the capacity of educators and a system to grow and change --  are so important!

(What) Do Americans really think about education?

(What) Do Americans really think about education? | school improvement process | Scoop.it

A number of polls from major news organizations, education groups, and universities have been commissioned over the past several months, and education pundits and advocates on all sides of current reform debates have endlessly parsed the results.  Unfortunately these pundits are mostly misguided, and public opinion polls on education don’t mean what people think they mean. What follows are three conclusions, all based on data from these various polls, and a discussion of they ought to mean for education policy and advocacy going forward.

7 Traits That Make A Leader

7 Traits That Make A Leader | school improvement process | Scoop.it

Successful leadership, like happiness, is one of those things that everyone claims to have the "secret" to. There are more than 27,000 leadership books on Amazon, thousands of seminars on leadership skills held in conference rooms across the country, and countless articles in business magazines and websites pruning leadership lessons from CEOs and corporate movers and shakers. 

But leadership isn't just about sitting at the top of the corporate ladder and running the show -- it's a way of engaging with your social network, community, colleagues and employees to share a vision and unite people in pursuit of a common goal. Good leadership brings out the best individual qualities of everyone participating.
