Reclaim Your Creative Confidence

Reclaim Your Creative Confidence | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Most people are born creative. As children, we revel in imaginary play, ask outlandish questions, draw blobs and call them dinosaurs. But over time, because of socialization and formal education, a lot of us start to stifle those impulses. We learn to be warier of judgment, more cautious, more analytical. The world seems to divide into “creatives” and “noncreatives,” and too many people consciously or unconsciously resign themselves to the latter category.

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers?

Coaching v mentoring: what works best for teachers? | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs

 

Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.

 

Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.

Les termes de coaching et mentoring sont souvent utilisés et je n'avais pas vraiment réfléchi à la différence des deux approches. Si elles se basent toutes deux sur des échanges informels, elles ont un périmètre et des objectifs différents très bien expliqués dans l'article.

The Paradox of Trust, Vulnerability and Leadership

The Paradox of Trust, Vulnerability and Leadership | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Humans tend to model the behavior they see. When leaders appear to be in control, know everything, never doubt, or never ask for help or input, employees think they have to do the same.  The behavior they see and deem as acceptable is to be strong, not question, never be wrong, and always know.  The opposite behavior is a sign of weakness and is unacceptable

Articles such as this one should be part of the conversation about School leadership which tends away from trust, paradox, and leadership and tends towards managing.

(From the article): Ignoring the tough questions, doesn't make them go away. In fact, your team is likely asking the questions, to themselves and to one another. Tackling the tough conversations head on will go a long way in building trust and respect on your team.

John Michel's curator insight, August 14, 3:14 AM

Great leaders that guide a company through necessary changes don’t do it all by themselves. They bring all team members together and leverage their talent pool in a collaborative manner. This creates buy-in at all levels which is critical. They identify stakeholders and place the responsibility on them for rolling out new processes. Change doesn’t have to be stressful. Face it head on and keep the company moving forward.

How can companies increase engagement? An insightful New York Times article by Tony Schwartz and Christine Porath included a survey of more than 12,000 employees that identified four drivers: physical (having the opportunity to recharge); emotional (feeling valued); mental (having the ability to work autonomously); and spiritual (feeling connected to a higher purpose).

The Five Biggest Misconceptions About Trust

The Five Biggest Misconceptions About Trust | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Be honest. Do your eyes glaze over when you read another article about trust? Does it feel too fuzzy, an exercise in fog-sculpting? Does it feel full of make-nice exhortations, but short on specifics?

 

Well, you’re not wrong. The fact is, a great deal of what’s written about in the public press is, frankly, nonsense. That’s “nonsense” technically speaking – as in, there’s clearly something there, but it isn’t put together in a way that makes sense.

 

But it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s possible to describe trust in a way that is clear, commonsensical, and allows for sensible business discussions about things like processes and economics.

“Just trust me.” “Why don’t you trust me on this?” “Trust that it will all work out.” These are sentiments any person in business today has heard at one point or another. It could be the boss telling you to trust you will be treated right, a colleague telling you to trust they will deliver their portion of the project or a vendor asking you to trust they will apply the credit for your company correctly
