9 Daily Habits That Will Make You Happier

9 Daily Habits That Will Make You Happier | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
These minor changes in your daily routine will make a major difference in your life and career.
Sharrock's insight:

I have seen this particular suggesting when reading the book Crucial Conversations: "Since you can't read minds, you don't really know the "why" behind the "what" that people do. Imputing evil motives to other people's weird behaviors adds extra misery to life, while assuming good intentions leaves you open to reconciliation." It also leaves you open to actually focusing on the problem/challenge at hand so that solutions can be found.

Homeless kids fly under radar; number enrolled in Arkansas schools doubles in 10 years

Homeless kids fly under radar; number enrolled in Arkansas schools doubles in 10 years | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Unaccompanied youths are those not in the physical custody of their parents or guardians. They stay with friends or find other accommodations under borrowed roofs. More than 70 percent of the state's homeless students have been recorded as living in "doubled-up" situations -- couch-surfing or sharing residences with another person or family.

"Those families who are barely staying out of the shelter system, they're not sleeping in their car, but the 9-year-old is staying with a cousin; the mom and boyfriend and the 2-year-old are staying with the boyfriend's mom; and the 13-year-old is sleeping on the couch of a friend," said Georgia Mjartan, executive director of Our House. "That picture right there, that's a homeless family. That's a family in which the kids are missing school."

A Look At The Invisible Forces Controlling Your Workplace

A Look At The Invisible Forces Controlling Your Workplace | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
When the team decided to look at social norms—those "rules" that define acceptable behavior in various settings—they initially weren’t going to look at workplaces. But, soon, it became apparent that these guidelines are a big part of workplace cultures, and can also influence everything from safety levels to how people interact and communicate on a day-to-day basis.

In the "New Norm" episode, they look take a look at how changing social and emotional norms can transform culture. They recount the experiences of a group of oil field workers on Shell Oil Company’s massive Ursa deep water oil rig. These are people who do dangerous work. Interviewees tell harrowing stories about getting just 15 minutes to grieve after watching co-workers die in grisly rig accidents, then being required to get back on the job.

But, to create a safer environment, it was important that workers communicate better, including being able to admit needing help or having concerns. Roughly 100 Shell workers participated in sessions that had them sharing details of their personal lives, admitting mistakes, receiving honest feedback, and feeling vulnerable—a far cry from the steely compartmentalization they had mastered to control their emotions. The effort and its effects contributed to an 84% decline in accidents company-wide and a rise in productivity.

False Perceptions Revisited

False Perceptions Revisited | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
This is a powerful step in personal brand building. You have asked for feedback on your brand, accepted it, and now acted upon it. Now is the time to go back and close the loop. Return to those who gave you feedback and say: “Here is what I have done with the information you gave me. Have you seen an impact?”

This is powerful for two reasons. First, it validates and strengthens the relationship because you are demonstrating deep respect to the other person. You took what they said and did something about it.

Second, if the other person hasn’t noticed a change (and hence your brand hasn’t changed), this provides a nudge for them to reflect and re-evaluate. They might say, “I hadn’t noticed the change, but now that you point it out . . . ” Or, if upon reflection, they haven’t seen the change and their perception hasn’t begun to shift, that is a great data point for you as you consider whether the behaviors you have changed are driving the results you want.

Are You A Good Judge Of Character? Are You Sure?

Are You A Good Judge Of Character? Are You Sure? | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it

Most people won’t admit it, but we size up other people's characters all the time. In fact, research suggests that it takes just 30 seconds to make up our minds about someone’s intelligence and personality (we make other assessments even faster) and that these evaluations are surprisingly accurate.

 

In one study, researchers showed participants short videos of different couplesinteracting, and participants were able to detect which individuals had cheated on their partners. Likewise, observers watching videos of randomly selected speed daters were able to infer participants' level of romantic interest. Even when the people being evaluated are children, observers can infer their character with a similar degree of accuracy than the children’s parents do.

 

So the idea that you can’t judge a book by its cover is inconsistent with the evidence: People, it seems, are fairly transparent and we can see through them pretty easily and accurately

Why So Many Diversity Programs Fail

Why So Many Diversity Programs Fail | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Hiring tests don’t really solve the diversity problem, either, for some of the same reasons. In theory, skills-based testing is designed to level the playing field and let the best candidate shine. But managers didn’t appreciate being told to hire someone they didn’t hand select. Dobbin and Kalev also found that some companies were only giving the tests to people they didn’t want to hire, i.e. under-represented minorities. Or, they just ignored the results in favor of picking who they wanted.

Sharrock's insight:
School districts should consider this research and its findings. The tech industry is being noticed now in the public, but education also has the diversity issue, especially in leadership positions, but also in the learner leadership positions (teaching/educator).

Destroy Your Ego Before It Destroys You (And How We Make Bad Situations Even Worse) | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
“As the psychologist David Elkind has famously researched, adolescence is marked by a phenomenon known now as ‘imaginary audience.’ Consider a thirteen-year-old so embarrassed that he misses a week of class, positive that the entire school is thinking and murmuring about some tiny incident that in truth hardly anyone noticed. Or a teenage girl who spends three hours in front of the mirror each morning, as if she’s about to go on stage. They do this because they’re convinced that their every move is being watched with rapt attention by the rest of the world. Even as adults, we’re susceptible to this fantasy during a harmless walk down the street.”

F.A.T. Video Workshop

The F.A.T. City workshop and video are the author's contributions to the important process of understanding learning disabilities. F.A.T. stands for Frustration, Anxiety, and Tension — and that's exactly what the participants experience. This workshop and video provide teachers, parents, caregivers, and siblings with the opportunity actually to experience the emotions and stresses that children with learning disabilities face daily. By using simulations and contrived activities as models (for example, telling a story without using any words that contain the letter N), the participants temporarily experience the frustration, anxiety, and tension that is the lifestyle of students with special needs.

Warren and the other politicians know how little effect they have. Congress can draw attention and headlines, but since it’s hopelessly gridlocked, there’s very little its members can do to punish corporate malefactors like Wells Fargo and Mylan if they can’t pass laws. Meanwhile, the public’s opinion of Congress, while never high, has plunged lower than ever. In a Gallup poll this summer, just 13% of Americans approved of the way it was handling its job. Congress has no moral authority it can summon.
