"Today’s technology changes so quickly, it’s challenging to keep up. However, the younger generation has this well in hand. Kids use computer devices at home, on the run and at school. The Saratoga Springs City School District is giving students technological tools for education, ranging from laptops to portable SMART boards to the latest device — tablet computers."

Pioneering Smart Cities: What Separates Innovators From The Rest? | The Toolbox | skills services | Scoop.it

Since Code for America's inaugural year in 2011, 28 municipal governments have participated in the (CfA) Fellowship Program. Last year, officials from 80+ cities attended the annual CfA summit in San Francisco, when the Code for America civic innovation community gathers in person for three days of collaborating, connecting and learning. 

 

One of the main things that these municipal governments have in common is their willingness to innovate. Many have Chief Innovation Officers, who are charged with translating ideas of government innovation including open data initiatives, which are developed to identify better ways to use technology and spark the kind of citizen engagement that leads to action.  

 

For all of the cities that have embraced the Code for America ideal of open data and transparency there are numerous governments that haven’t. But why? ...

Management’s Three Eras: A Brief History - We’ve entered the age of empathy.

Management’s Three Eras: A Brief History - We’ve entered the age of empathy. | skills services | Scoop.it

We’ve entered the age of empathy.

 

Today, we are in the midst of another fundamental rethinking of what organizations are and for what purpose they exist. If organizations existed in the execution era to create scale and in the expertise era to provide advanced services, today many are looking to organizations to create complete and meaningful experiences.

 

I would argue that management has entered

a new era of empathy.

 

This quest for empathy extends to customers, certainly, but also changes the nature of the employment contract, and the value proposition for new employees. We are also grappling with widespread dissatisfaction with the institutions that have been built to date, many of which were designed for the business-as-machine era. They are seen as promoting inequality, pursuing profit at the expense of employees and customers, and being run for the benefit of owners of capital, rather than for a broader set of stakeholders. At this level, too, the challenge to management is to act with greater empathy.

Susan Stillman's curator insight, August 10, 8:59 AM

So, let's be proactive and teach empathy and other competencies of emotional intelligence  to MBA students, med students, law school students (what a thought!), teacher candidates, educational leaders,  and other professional in training. They,  in turn, would be using these skills in their interactions with their students, or staffs,  or clients going forward. What an impact that would have, not just corporations/customers but on all of society. That would be a new era indeed!

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | skills services | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

Empathy and Good Managers

Empathy and Good Managers | skills services | Scoop.it

The traditional view of management is to drive results at all costs. Be hard on employees and they will perform. That employees’ personal lives don't matter, as they have nothing to do with work. Yet we know today that employees’ personal and professional lives do collide. Today’s workplace environment calls for an evolved way of management and of leadership. Today’s managers need to tap into other motivators to get results and inspire the best performance from employees.
