Are you a fellow Type B Teacher? I recently started a second instagram account called @TeacherTroubles where I’m meme-ifying all those things you always thought were “just you”. These memes all come from that account, so make sure to follow me on instagram if you like this post. (There’s also a Teacher Troubles Facebook page!)
I, like most people, have some experience with Microsoft Excel -- but not as much as I wish I did. For the most part, I've used it to brainstorm ideas, budget vacations, and make simple traffic and leads calculations.
Fear of something unknown is one of the biggest and strongest fears for all humans. What can be more "unknown" than something you're learning? :) We learn things we don't know - and here unites two different emotions. First one is the passion to explore new things, the second one

What happens when someone asks us to do something really tough? First, we try to get out of it. Right? Next, we complain that they’re asking the impossible. Then, we whine to our friends, “I’m having such a bad day” or “The world is unfair.” After we’ve exhausted every way to get out of the work . . . we take a break. (It’s exhausting.) When we return, we brainstorm excuses to cover our behind if things go south. And, when all else fails, and it usually does, we get down to work while talking to ourselves.
Contrast this mindset to a champion’s approach . . .
I can hear the coach saying, “If they’re bigger, be faster” “If they’re better, play up.” “If you’re hurt, walk it off and then get back in the game.” There’s no whining, no excuses, and certainly no second-guessing. The players are positive, they’re optimistic, and they’re entirely focused on winning. These are the trademarks of winners. They’ll do whatever it takes to win. They know they have to “get it done.”
Until now, there have been a variety of tools for managers who wish to measure the emotional cues of individuals, such as the Brief Affect Recognition Test to understand cross-cultural facial expressions. Facial expressions provide a wealth of reliable information about how others are making sense of the world around them, and allow us to tailor our responses to the individual in a one-on-one situation.
This represents one of the key measures of emotional intelligence, which evaluates how well individuals perceive and deal with affectively charged interpersonal situations.

Understanding the collective can help leaders respond effectively to the group as a whole. This happens in situations such as dealing with the collective anxiety of executives facing the news of corporate restructuring; or public authorities dealing with the collective anger of large groups of people in the streets; or politicians seeking to inspire large groups of people to win an election. Those with the skill to pick up on the subtle emotional cues of the collective can adapt accordingly and, according to our research, earn more respect as a result. So how can this ability to see the forest for the trees be applied by leaders?
"We’re becoming a sedentary bunch. Even with increased flexible working practices, too many of us spend too long sitting at a desk working. Few of us seem to have physical work these days and while repetitious or hard physical work can create problems of its own, our lack of regular activity can lead to long-term health issues.
So, while this infographic, from OfficeVibe, veers towards the alarmist – a few exercises at your desk may just possibly save your life, but is more likely to simply make you feel better and more energised – but it will help you make the most of your time sat at a desk and mean that you’ll feel less hunched up and atrophied. Much of the same effect could be had by having a stand-up desk, but not everyone can afford or get one of these."
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.
