Stefano Principato's curator insight, April 22, 2014 5:04 PM

The founding father of self-leadership, Charles Manz, defines self-leadership as “leading oneself toward performance of naturally motivating tasks as well as managing oneself to do work that must be done but is not naturally motivating”

Marc Wachtfogel, Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 20, 2014 12:58 PM

The adage "Leader know thyself" is powerful. By far the most difficult and most rewarding path is developing a deeper understanding of the self. This is the journey into the deep dark forest, of meeting and slaying one's dragon...representing realization and the new conceptions of self that one brings to life in the leadership of others. If one wishes to lead, one must be true to one's self, to one's style, to the uniqueness of one's life experience,  and shape it as it is. This is where the treasure is. You are it.

"Author Chris Lowney has observed the behavior of the first Jesuit pope and used him as a case study in effective leadership. In his new book, “Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads,” Lowney writes of Francis’ first days as pope: “We were not watching someone trying to act like a pope. We were watching a person unafraid to be who he was.”

John Michel's curator insight, December 2, 2013 8:31 AM

You will be a more effective leader if you place your own self-interests aside. People will work harder for you. Loyalty will increase. You don’t need an academic study to prove that – just think of the bosses, coaches, even parents, who have led you and helped you reach a better place.

Michaela Vila's curator insight, February 13, 2014 11:42 AM

This is a fantastic idea for students to combined PBL and technology. I think this is also a way for teachers to digitally document PBL. I use an iPad and Evernote every day for school, but I never thought of it being a tool for as a future teacher. Though this idea would could only be used for a small amount of classrooms right now, I love this idea and I want to keep it in my back pocket.

(From the article): Success in managing or leading others is no longer dependent on your technical abilities alone. Soft-skills, your ability to communicate and interact more effectively with others, build collaborative teams, problem solve, resolve conflict and deal with difficult people and challenging situations better, now plays a more pivotal role in your success and the overall success of your organization and your people.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, January 17, 2014 1:21 PM

The four are legitimate, but I wish there were only four. It is like seven habits and four assumptions. There are many more of each that need to weeded out and negotiated. Education, for example, is a constant reconstruction of exisitng personal and collective understanding.

 

The term I use for common sense is uncommon sense. Gadamer, Vico, and Humboldt wrote about common sense in this fashion. It is the glue that brings the community or congregation together and holds them together.

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning | IPrincipal | Scoop.it

By Nicole Legault

 

"After humming and hawing I decided that my third instructional design/learning themed infographic would be the Principles of Adult Learning. Now, I will be honest and say that while I knew a few principles (adults have experience, adults like control over their learning experiences, etc.) I was lacking in my overall knowledge in that area. Creating an infographic is a great cure to this. I need to research, read articles and gather the appropriate information. Then I have to boil it down to its most simple form and try to find visuals that represent what I am trying to communicate. Anyways, it’s a good learning process.

I

"thought I would jump online and quickly find the “list” of the 6 adult learning principles, or whatever. No such list exists. After much reading I have come to find out that there is no actual official consensus on what the principles of adult learning are. Many are generally agreed upon, but there is still much theoretical debate going on for each proposed principle.

 

"So here’s my disclaimer: there is no proven adult learning theory and the information in the infographic below is subject to much debate and differing opinions."

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, August 14, 2013 8:41 PM

Being able to ask questions requires good listening skills.  We were given two ears and one mouth for a reason...we should do twice as much listening as we do talking!  :)  In adition, "Asking contains the power to engage people. Good questions bring people together with a common purpose and goal. When I tell you the answer I have decided is correct, it reinforces that I am in control. When I ask you an honest question, it creates the opportunity for us to work together to recognize how we both answer it."

Eric Nolte's comment, August 21, 2013 3:12 PM
Another good listening skill I have been taught is to try and repeat what the speaker is saying while they are saying it. Again this helps focus you on what they are saying and not what you want to say when they are done.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 10, 2013 7:23 AM

(From the article): Here’s where it all comes together. You can provide context and consequences, and, you can leave the choice of action to the employee. But the bottom line is, you are the leader and you are the one held ultimately accountable for the overall performance.

 

Keeping that role in perspective can help you provide the sincere, honest feedback. This is your job, and the ultimate decisions about the work of the team falls to you.

 

You aren’t their friend, you’re their leader and your responsibility is to provide open and candid feedback. It is their choice to accept it or not.
