A great resource of 50 questions to help one start on a path of effectiveness and improvement.  

 

(From the article):  A few of the questions...

 

1. What must you accomplish in the next 12 months?

2. What would you like to focus on today?

3. What’s important to you at the moment?

4. What are you working on at the moment?

5. What challenges are you struggling with at the moment? 

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 17, 2014 1:33 PM

The first question is tough without asking the other questions which follow it. Planning for next week is hard, but knowing what we want now makes it more workable.

The rise of emotional intelligence

The rise of emotional intelligence | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

While there are many models of leadership, we inevitably return time and again to those with emotional intelligence at the core when working with groups and individuals who wish to inspire and motivate others.  

The work of James Kouzes and Barry Posner in this area is a very good place to begin.  

Both highly regarded academics, it is the basis in research that makes the work of Kouzes & Posner, outlined in their book The Leadership Challenge, so well respected. Over the past thirty years the co-authors have carried out surveys and interviews with over 60,000 leaders from every industry and background and identified five practices that outstanding leaders use consistently when dealing with others.

The Future of Librarianship: A Blended Perspective Apr. 10 Webinar | Blended Librarian | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 3:00-4:00pm Eastern 


The library profession is in the midst of a paradigm shift, thanks to technology and its impact on literacy and learning. With it have come new leadership roles for librarians, roles that require knowledge and skills not traditionally taught in library school programs. Blended librarianship is one way to embrace these new roles. Join Amanda Hovious as she discusses her journey toward becoming blended, and her perspective on what librarianship will look like in the (not too distant) future.

Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: 5 Ways to Build Your 1.0 and 2.0 Personal Learning Network | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

The digital age has made the development of a Personal Learning Network (PLN) easier than ever before. The PLN is a network created by an individual learner, specific to the learner’s needs extending relevant learning connections to those around the globe who share interests, passions, and talents. PLNs provide individuals with an unprecedented ability to access and connect with leaders and experts around the world bringing together communities, resources and information impossible to access solely from within school walls. Personal learning networks can be comprised of people you know via face-to-face (f2f) and virtual connections. In the best of all worlds they are people you connect with in both ways.
