Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 23, 2017 4:19 PM
Being a servant first is hard work as a leader. The concept of servant-leadership was articulated by Robert Greenleaf and has many roots i.e. Quaker faith, Taoist principles, Gandhi, etc.

It would seem to me that teaching is an ideal way of serving and leading, but I see little evidence of it.

As leaders we cannot make people successful. People do things because they can and they have to. We can make it necessary and possible – but we cannot cause anyone to do anything they either cannot do – or choose not to do. While we cannot make anyone successful – leadership can increase the odds that people will fail.

Self Awareness | Situational Leadership Model

Self Awareness | Situational Leadership Model | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Kenneth Blanchard and Paul Hersey’s situational leadership model tells us that managers could use different leadership styles depending on the situation.

Traditionally the model allows you to analyse the situation that you’re in and then use the leadership style that is most appropriate. Also, your style is likely to change depending on the competences and commitment levels of your staff and so from person to person. You might lead the same person in one way in one situation and another way in a different situation.

The pair characterised leadership style in terms of the amount of direction and support that the leader needs to give to members of the team and created a simple matrix:

Us versus Them: Reframing Resistance to Change

Us versus Them: Reframing Resistance to Change | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Anyone attempting to lead change in an organization knows to expect some resistance. Change is not a rational process; no matter how positive the future you are creating, it’s natural for humans to struggle with it.

Such resistance is no less frustrating for being predictable. At times, it can seem that all that stands between you and your goals are a few naysayers and whiners. And to those on a mission, such reactions can seem like putting one’s head in the sand. “The old business is not coming back,” one CEO told me. “We have to innovate or we will die.” Faced with negative remarks, critical questions, or stony silence, change champions naturally begin to interact more with those already on board, consciously or unconsciously distancing themselves from those who “don’t get it.

Gradually, a wall begins to form between “us” and “them” — champions who support the change, and resisters who openly or quietly oppose it. Unfortunately, approaching change with an “us versus them” mind-set actually increases pushback. When we think of people as resisters, we don’t truly engage with them. We tend to discount their perspective, assuming that if we are right, they must be wrong.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 20, 2017 4:06 PM
The short answer is it depends on how we define leading. Understood as emergent, distributed, and collective the answer is yes. More traditional understandings based on hierarchy and position means not as likely.

One that is missing is servant-leadership, which each person is capable of serving and leading. By its nature, teaching is leading even if we do not acknowledge teachers as leaders. Teachers are pedagogues and educate, both of which are etymologically tied to leading.

4 Types of Leaders Who Aren’t Ready for Coaching

4 Types of Leaders Who Aren’t Ready for Coaching | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

All over the world, leaders are using coaching to gain a competitive edge. But does coaching solve every problem one might encounter in the workplace?

“No. It’s not a panacea,” says coaching expert Patricia Overland in an article for Chief Learning Officer. “Determining when coaching is a good investment can be challenging.”

Overland shares a couple of examples from her experience when a leader may not be ready to learn and apply coaching skills. Overland explains that offering coaching without addressing these underlying beliefs is usually a recipe for failure.

The Psychology of Teamwork: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teams

The Psychology of Teamwork: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teams | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Imagine you’re a VIP admitted to a hospital with a serious heart condition. You need a lifesaving operation and, because of your wealth and influence, you are given the option of having a world renowned surgeon flown in to operate on you.

In those circumstances we’d all go for the star performer over the resident medical team, right?
Maybe not.

Robert Huckman and Gary Pisano from Harvard Business School challenged the status of freelancing experts by empirically measuring the success rates of more than 200 cardiac surgeons working across 43 different hospitals.

They specifically examined the success rates (patient survival rates) of highly experienced freelancers versus more bonded surgical teams.

After analyzing more than 38,000 procedures they found the performance of individual heart specialists did improve significantly with practice and experience (one for the prima donnas).

But it was only at the hospital where they did most of their work.

When the same surgeons left their usual teams to work at different hospitals their success rates returned to baseline.

It seems working with a bonded team of colleagues (doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists) helps to develop interactive routines that harness the unique talents of each team member.

The authors concluded that elite performance is not as portable as previously thought and is more a function of the “familiarity that a surgeon develops with the assets of a given organization”- a nice way of saying stars only shine due to their colleagues.

The Future of Education – Personalized, Perfect & Free (Thanks to AI and VR)


Right now, online platforms like Khan Academy and Coursera have made a plethora of educational resources available 1) for free and 2) on demand, such that you can pick and choose what you learn and at what speed you learn it.

Khan Academy has delivered over 300 million lessons since it started in 2006, features 5,000 free instructional videos in 65 languages, and allows users to complete 4 million exercises every day – simply amazing.

In 2011, Stanford professor Andrew Ng decided to put his machine learning course online for free, thinking that maybe a few additional people would tune in with his students. Within days, 100,000 people had signed up to take the course.

We are already seeing technology democratize access to education – but soon the education itself will become even more powerful with the help of AI and virtual and augmented reality.

In the near future, artificial intelligence will be able to personalize learning platforms to each individual student.

The AI will have unlimited access to information and will deliver it at the optimal speed to each student in an engaging, fun way.
