How to Deal With a Narcissistic Leader

How to Deal With a Narcissistic Leader | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

If you're working under a narcissistic leader, you know that nothing creates a more poisonous work environment. It may seem impossible to overcome, but take heart: It really can be done.

donhornsby's insight:

Perhaps the best advice in dealing with a narcissistic leader is the last line: "Don't get caught up in other people's stories but do your best with the situation you are in. If all else fails, remove yourself before the toxicity does lasting damage."

Moral Character Matters

Moral Character Matters | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
There’s a direct correlation between moral character and success. We lose something very important when character is treated as an afterthought.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Most importantly, every day that you display weak character, you’re letting yourself down. You must answer to your conscience every minute of every day. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!”

Six Paths to Better Leadership

Six Paths to Better Leadership | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
One need not be a principal, superintendent or school board president to be a school leader. Leaders are those who step up to help their organizations succeed.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): David Gergen, in 2000, published Eyewitness to Power, summarizing his perspective on leadership after having served in the White House for several presidents from both political parties. Though derived from a wider range of proven examples, the lessons learned have great resonance because they can apply to education. Here they are:

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

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.

 

 


Via The Learning Factor, Gust MEES
donhornsby's insight:

Changing an organization’s culture is one of the most difficult leadership challenges. That’s because an organization’s culture comprises an interlocking set of goals, roles, processes, values, communications practices, attitudes and assumptions.

The elements fit together as an mutually reinforcing system and combine to prevent any attempt to change it.

Critical Thinking Takes Courage

Critical Thinking Takes Courage | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Critical thinking isn't an entirely natural process; it's one that requires courage.


Via Suvi Salo, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD, Dean J. Fusto, Gust MEES
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): To think critically requires you to aggregate knowledge, form some kind of understanding, get inside the mind of the clockmaker, judge their work, and then articulate it all for a specific form (e.g., argumentative essay) and audience (e.g., teacher).

Chris Carter's curator insight, June 24, 2014 7:33 PM

Yes, and YES!!! Critical thinking really takes risk, because someone is likely to disagree with you. How much better it is, however, to have a well thought opinion and stand alone, than to be a lemming. 

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, June 25, 2014 8:21 AM

A really excellent article on something that can be hard to define and practice, and yet is such an essential skill for life.   I really like the distinction Terry Heick makes between thought and knowledge and the interplay between them.

Javier Antonio Bellina's curator insight, June 25, 2014 11:38 AM

El pensamiento crítico requiere coraje, actitud y valor que no se fomenta en los sistemas educativos en general debido a los riesgos que conlleva.
