Interesting article although it misses some critical aspects of education for future leaders like ethics and social compromise. :(

He quedado algo inquieta al leer este artículo. Quiero, al compartir este artículo, hacer énfasis en la ausencia de aspectos tan importantes y críticos en la educación de nuevos líderes, la ética o el compromiso social como llaves para el éxito de toda comunidad.

“A common requirement of leaders at all levels is having the courage to make tough decisions and take difficult actions,” write authors David Cottrell and Eric Harvey in their book Leadership Courage: Leadership Strategies for Individual and Organizational Success. A big part of courage in 21st century leadership is standing up for what is right. As Cottrell and Harvey correctly describe, “The true measure of leadership is the ability to look in the mirror and know that you had the courage to do what you felt was the right thing to do.” The 21st Principal.

Experimenting in Education: 21st Century School Culture | 21st century education | Scoop.it

In Changing Education Paradigms, Sir Ken Robinson discusses the habits of institutions and the habitats they occupy.  While his intelligence exceeds mine by a factor of 10, I think what he is talking about is creating a collaborative culture of learning among all stakeholders of a school or institution.  Among other things, this culture must be truly collaborative--from top to bottom, or better yet, from bottom to top.  There are so many aspects to explore within this thought, but one that struck me recently is the general disjunction of professional development between administration and staff....

Why good leaders make you feel safe

Why good leaders make you feel safe | 21st century education | Scoop.it
What makes a great leader? Management theorist Simon Sinek suggests, it’s someone who makes their employees feel secure, who draws staffers into a circle of trust. But creating trust and safety — especially in an uneven economy — means taking on big responsibility.
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Getting the environment right is all part of making colleagues and employees feel safe!  Trust and co-operation are all part of the deal.  Simon Sinek shares his philosophy on a circle of safety.  As teachers we need to strive to make this circle in our physical and virtual classrooms.

7 Habits of Highly Effective Tech-leading Principals - T.H.E. Journal | 21st century education | Scoop.it

7 Habits of Highly Effective Tech-leading PrincipalsT.H.E.  The conventional wisdom in education is that any school reform--be it curriculum, instruction, assessment, or teacher professionalism--is most likely to take hold in schools that have strong leadership. The same holds true for technology. Any educator will tell you the most successful implementation of technology programs takes place in schools where the principal sees him or herself as a technology leader.

"The role of the principal is one of facilitation and modeling behavior," remarks Robert Farrace, senior director of communications and development with the National Association of Secondary School Principals. "The principal who models these behaviors is going to be able to inspire innovation in their school much more effectively than a principal who simply requires that teachers use technology, or collaborate, or take risks."
