Teaching Empathy: hey, that's networked leadership!

Teaching Empathy: hey, that's networked leadership! | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

 

As I read this article on Forbes tonight, Teaching Empathy: The Ancient Way Is Now Cutting-Edge it struck me that the four things they suggest we teach for empathy also represent network leadership.

 

- Teach listening as a core skill and expect it as a cultural practice. 

 

- Start by being an active listener yourself and give people the time they need to reflect.

 

- Time not made for someone is time wasted.Make dialogue a primary team, group or classroom practice. 

 

- Dialogue opens the doors to exploration—what Peter Senge in his guide “The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook” calls “skillful discussion,” where thoughtful decisions can be made that honor all participants (or, in business, stakeholders).

 

- Identify roles, not organizational charts. When people are able to articulate their role, what they need to be successful and what gets in the way of their success, an empathic understanding is present and the beginnings of a healthy team, class or group takes shape.

 

- Lead with consistency, authenticity and honesty.

 

- Be clear as to why you are doing what you are doing.

 

- Do not lead or manage through personality but rather through articulation. To articulate is to clarify.

Five Leadership Principles We Learned From the Boston Bombings

Five Leadership Principles We Learned From the Boston Bombings | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

In the course of our research on leaders of the Boston Marathon Bombings Response, we discovered an extraordinary phenomenon. Though many people took charge of aspects of the response, no one official was in command of it all, including the range of law enforcement, medical and recovery activities.  Boston’s leaders set a tone of remarkable collaboration and inter-agency leveraging amongst one another. Competitiveness, ego driven behavior, and flamboyant credit taking – often present in large crises involving many jurisdictions and agencies – were not significant factors.

10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12 - Huffington Post | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

"The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Society of Pediatrics state infants aged 0-2 years should not have any exposure to technology, 3-5 years be restricted to one hour per day, and 6-18 years restricted to 2 hours per day (AAP 2001/13, CPS 2010). Children and youth use 4-5 times the recommended amount of technology, with serious and often life threatening consequences (Kaiser Foundation 2010, Active Healthy Kids Canada 2012)."

Allie Peck's curator insight, March 10, 1:40 PM

While I don't necessarily agree with this in the extent to which it is depicted, there are certainly parts that I wholeheartedly agree with.  Often technologies are over stimulating.  Looking at a computer screen, iPad screen, TV screen, etc. for an extended period of time causes migraines in myself and many other people that I know.  I have seen other research that suggests technology use before bed will make it difficult to fall asleep, and even aids in the development of ADD in children because there is too much to take in.  As this article points out, technology also has an increased cause in depression in adolescence.  Given all of these incredibly negative side effects, why are schools pushing towards a technology centered classroom?

Complex (psychology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Complex (psychology)

A complex is a core pattern of emotions, memories, perceptions, and wishes in the personal unconscious organized around a common theme, such as power or status (Schultz, D. & Schultz, S., 2009). Primarily a psychoanalytic term, it is found extensively in the works of Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud.

An example of a complex would be as follows: if you had a leg amputated when you were a child, this would influence your life in profound ways, even if you were wonderfully successful in overcoming the handicap. You might have many thoughts, emotions, memories, feelings of inferiority, triumphs, bitterness and determinations centering on that one aspect of your life. If these thoughts troubled you, Jung would say you had a complex about the leg (Dewey, 2007).

 

Complex existence is widely agreed upon in the area of depth psychology. It assumes the most important factors influencing your personality are deep in the unconscious (Dewey, 2007). They are generally a way of mapping the psyche, and are crucial theoretical items of common reference to be found in therapy. Complexes are believed by Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud to influence the individual's attitude and behavior.

Leadership does have to change. What is interesting is that today, as I looked for dissertation materials on leadership, this idea of a leadership crisis is not new, Many authors and thinkers complained of the same thing in times past. The challenge might be the pace of change is so rapid it presents new challenges.

Evolutions in Leadership

Evolutions in Leadership | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

As the structure of our society has changed, as social dynamics have moved away from authoritarian models towards more socially collaborative ones, backed up by the speed, breadth and fluidity of communications, so the nature of leadership has changed too


No longer purely authoritarian (although often needing to include elements of this), there is a more constructivist dimension: leadership created in the moment through consensus of the community. Leadership of it’s time: a time when communities enable us to be more effective, to create ever stronger meaning and share it ever more widely.

 

Yesterdays leaders may have been about bluster and orders, today’s are about curation, sharing, social capital and trust. Today’s successful leaders gain support through their communities and provide a light touch of leadership on decisions that are co-ownedthroughout the community.

Why empathy is your most important business skill - Jennifer Walpole

Why empathy is your most important business skill - Jennifer Walpole | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
Empathy is sorely lacking in today's fast-paced world, but exercising empathy can set any professional apart and become a tremendous business asset.

 

What separates empathetic people

Empathetic people spend more time listening than talking because they want to understand other people’s motivations, reasons, and difficulties; allowing them to connect on a deeper level and give the other person a sense of being heard and recognized. An employer who is empathetic is able take the time to understand the needs of their employees, enabling them to provide support and understanding in difficult times. And by providing this, employers are building and strengthening trust, alone with a sense of belonging; which can lead to greater collaboration and improved productivity.
