Three Myths of Behavior Change - What You Think You Know That You Don't: Jeni Cross at TEDxCSU - YouTube

Prof. Elizabeth Stokoe takes a run on what she terms the “conversational racetrack”—the daily race to understand each other when we speak—and explains how to...
Sharrock's insight:

Leaders hoping to be "agents of change" need to watch this video. Understand that it is not only sociology that underlies Dr. Jeni Cross's conclusions, but also nobel prize winning work on behavioral economics published by Daniel Kahneman and Bandura. It puts science behind assertions that "we are social animals" by outlining in what ways we are social. 

 

Eye-opening talk that can be backed by empirical evidence.

Wraparound
Sharrock's insight:

If a school is seeing no satisfactory progress in student behavior and outcomes, The school district should investigate wraparound as well as SW-PBIS (school wide positive behavioral interventions and supports--aka PBS). Research supports the approaches and makes sense in terms of developing resilience in students.

Regression toward the mean - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Regression toward the mean

In statistics, regression toward (or to) the mean is the phenomenon that if a variable is extreme on its first measurement, it will tend to be closer to the average on its second measurement-and, paradoxically, if it is extreme on its second measurement, it will tend to have been closer to the average on its first.

Sharrock's insight:

I learned of this term from Thinking, Fast and Slow when I heard this story:

The psychologist Daniel Kahneman, winner of the 2002 Nobel prize in economics, pointed out that regression to the mean might explain why rebukes can seem to improve performance, while praise seems to backfire.[8]

“I had the most satisfying Eureka experience of my career while attempting to teach flight instructors that praise is more effective than punishment for promoting skill-learning. When I had finished my enthusiastic speech, one of the most seasoned instructors in the audience raised his hand and made his own short speech, which began by conceding that positive reinforcement might be good for the birds, but went on to deny that it was optimal for flight cadets. He said, “On many occasions I have praised flight cadets for clean execution of some aerobatic maneuver, and in general when they try it again, they do worse. On the other hand, I have often screamed at cadets for bad execution, and in general they do better the next time. So please don’t tell us that reinforcement works and punishment does not, because the opposite is the case.” This was a joyous moment, in which I understood an important truth about the world: because we tend to reward others when they do well and punish them when they do badly, and because there is regression to the mean, it is part of the human condition that we are statistically punished for rewarding others and rewarded for punishing them. I immediately arranged a demonstration in which each participant tossed two coins at a target behind his back, without any feedback. We measured the distances from the target and could see that those who had done best the first time had mostly deteriorated on their second try, and vice versa. But I knew that this demonstration would not undo the effects of lifelong exposure to a perverse contingency.

Understanding Children's Emotions: The Importance of Pride and Shame

Understanding Children's Emotions: The Importance of Pride and Shame | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
In childhood, shame leads to avoidance and withdrawal and then, in adolescence, to desperate attempts to alleviate, or get rid of, this painful state of mind.
