I worked for a principal who used to pass himself off as a tech expert. I told him several times I was not an expert and relied on others to help me do what I was not able to do. We could not be experts in everything, but, with the help of others, we can get a lot done.

Why Getting Angry Isn’t Always A Bad Thing?

Why Getting Angry Isn’t Always A Bad Thing? | Transformational Leadership | Scoop.it

Losing temper at workplace is nothing new. I have experienced it in self, seen it in others. I’m sure most of you would have felt it too. We have always been told to not get angry, right? It is termed unprofessional, immature and in some sense bad. What if I say it’s not bad? At least not all parts of it are bad. What if I say getting angry can get you better results?

The last point is a great one.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 6, 2015 7:41 AM

Learn from those times when you are angry. Great point from this article:

 

(From the article): Average leaders waste their anger by getting embroiled in drama-based debates fueled by blame. They get stuck wanting to prove they're right. Great leaders know this is a massive waste of time and energy. Though it might be fun for the ego to parade around its smarts, nothing of value is accomplished.


Instead of blaming others, great leaders learn from anger and become even better leaders.

 

Once leaders have felt, expressed and owned their anger, they then ask the question, "What is this anger here to teach me and us?" Anger is usually an invitation to set a boundary, stop doing something that is no longer of service, change direction, face what is not being faced or to say no.

 

Yes, it takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. What worthy skill isn't? The good news is, when you start shifting your relationship with anger, you'll see the results immediately.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 12:44 PM

I chose this resource because, I am not immune to developing anger. I should revisit this in the future as an administrator! "Feeling" anger and not repressing it. And communicating and justifying your anger (in a cool and collected way) is a good way of extinguishing emotions. This is a difficult concept for an educational administrator to do, because staff always look to the principal as a someone who can be rational and logical despite any circumstance.

This is a MUST read for mentors and mentees. The author distinguishes the ingredients that are common to transformational change. What he leaves out is the value of a committed listener, a mentoring partner who can support you in staying on track. These distinctions will help you cause and sustain breakthroughs in performance and results.

(From the article): When you first hire employees, you may feel the need to be available 24/7 for them to answer questions, settle disputes and set direction. But in the end, you’re also the boss of yourself.


It’s important to balance being the boss of the team and managing your personal responsibilities, which can often become overwhelming. This is the time to take a moment (or a day or longer!) to rest and come back with a refreshed and recharged mind—and lead, not control, your team.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 18, 2015 3:09 PM

A critical skill in leadership is the responsibility,it's for decisions made and results achieved. We must remember to share the glory, but take responsibility when so things don't go well. A true leader empowers people to take risks to solve problems and create processes. They review plans in order to be informed and use their experience to provide feedback and guidance. They must be the cheerleaders for people on the front line and find ways to celebrate even small steps of progress. They must shine the spotlight on others,  when things go awry they must shoulder the burden themselves and not deflect blame Onto their subordinates.  That is true empowerment

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 24, 2015 5:03 PM

It is easy for a leader to feel the pressure for high student achievement and give in to micro-management.  This micro-management actually undermines their overal goal of increasing student achievement.  Hire the best teachers, provide a structure and time for the, to collaborate, engage them in collectI've decision making and empower them to provide theor best instruction.  The results...and a leader's goal achievement will follow

"...Human ingenuity within any organization is it's greatest competitive advantage". This quote alone made me scoop this resource. How do we tap into the resource that is our staff? Engaging with them in the classroom and in the hallways to build communication capacity is important. Inspiring staff to take risks is a tricky enterprise - leaders must value this sort of behavior. This means that attempts which result in failure must be cherished, not scrutinized as they often tend to be.
