Rethinking the Work of Leadership

Rethinking the Work of Leadership | The Wise Leader | Scoop.it
What are you doing to escape the limits of top-down power structures?
Rick Burkhardt's insight:

Being a real leader means caring for others more than you care about yourself and serving them sacrificially for their benefit, not yours.  We don't need to rethink leadership, we just need to be servant leaders.

Evernote - for organizing teachers & students | Powerful Learning Practice

Evernote - for organizing teachers & students | Powerful Learning Practice | The Wise Leader | Scoop.it

by Jennifer Carey

 

"If you are not familiar with Evernote, now is the time. Evernote is a free web tool and application that helps you to organize your notes, emails, images, and, well…. everything. It’s hard to describe, but this 50-second video highlights some of the key features and abilities.

 

'Evernote can be a great application for teachers, both to keep yourself coordinated and to facilitate student learning. I want to highlight a few ways that I have employed Evernote not only to make my life a little easier as a teacher, but to help my students and my classroom stay more focused and organized.

 

'First, if you need to familiarize yourself with a quick tutorial, try out the “Getting Started Guide For Teachers.” This will help you with the basics of setting up an account, creating notes, and syncing across platforms. Trust me, it’s very easy and you’ll be up and running in just a few minutes. If you are already a more advanced user, then make sure that you set aside some time to browse their blog and YouTube channel for more advanced tips and tricks!"

Excellent tips! 

 

It seems as though we have more and more technology to share information, and we are connecting less and less.

 

We have to constantly remind ourselves the importance in Disconnecting from our technology to truly and genuinely Connect with our people.

 

What tips do you have to stay connected?

 

Make it a great day!

John Michel's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:33 PM

A lack of stability harms culture, stifles productivity, erodes trust, and makes it extremely difficult to retain top talent. Instability can also be a harbinger of bigger problems. The passing of time will usually reveal unstable leaders also tend to be lacking in several other areas.
