There is a misperception that people are motivated by competition. People are actually motivated by generosity and love.

Walk out and Walk on is a great book. The last few years I taught I thought about that phrase a lot. We have to let go when we move on. It is hard and ongoing work.

We Need To Focus More On Networks And Less On The Nodes

We Need To Focus More On Networks And Less On The Nodes | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
In the mid-1980s, a Robert Kelley of Carnegie Mellon University began to research why some engineers at Bell Labs performed so much better than others. The answers he found surprised him. By any conventional analysis, the outperforming engineers were nothing special. They seemed just like anyone else.

From Patriarchy To Partnership – The Paradigm Shift Our Organisations Need | Corporate Rebels

From Patriarchy To Partnership – The Paradigm Shift Our Organisations Need | Corporate Rebels | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
We are in a paradigm and most of us are blind to it. You could call it Theory X or top-down, but one way to summarise it is that we are in a parent-child paradigm. There have been shades of this throughout history but perhaps none more dominant than the Industrial Era which was fuelled by the worldview that employees, then largely uneducated, are naturally stupid and lazy and must be monitored, controlled and motivated.

Incredibly, this is still the prevailing paradigm in workplaces today. We might have upgraded it a little, but not much. (Just read this mind blowing article by Aeon about the ‘stupidity paradox’ in organisations.) But what about companies that invest heavily in employee engagement programmes and making their people happy? Often this is just a different shade of being a parent – either a caring parent, or a coercive parent! The underlying belief is still: “people need to be motivated and taken care of to be productive.”

“We already know how to be good parents at work. The alternative, partnership, is something we are just learning about. Our difficulty with creating partnership is that parenting – and its stronger cousin, patriarchy – is so deeply ingrained in our muscle memory and armature that we don’t even realise we are doing it.”

– Peter Block, Stewardship

Your thoughts?

Ian Berry's curator insight, December 4, 4:28 PM
Agree with the premise. Good diagram and references. The first step I think is letting go of the need to be in control
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 4, 5:20 PM
I agree, but having worked in private industry and in public schools I am not hopeful. What we need is to be attentive to the pretexts and subtexts of our organizations that lead to oppressive structures, so we can shift paradigms and liberate adults by treating them as responible, autonomous beings.

Is our objective to create algorithms so we can simply replace people who stand up? Being a rebel is fun. It upsets the ones who simply want conformity and compliance.

Being adult-adult doesn’t mean we get to do what we want or that there is a leadership vacuum. It means we are truly in a partnership, [responsible for our actions and] to each other.

So if you’re a network coordinator and you want your network to work effectively so everyone can find the information they’re looking for, what should you tell the people in your network to do? Here are my current best suggestions:

1/ don’t worry too much about connecting to lots of people, and strive for diversity over quantity
2/ worry primarily about what kind of information you care about – be discerning & review frequently
3/ regularly collect that information from the people you’re connected to, and pass it on quickly & clearly
4/ connect people that you see are using similar filters
5/ spread these principles

What is the most under used practice that many leaders forget about? It's listening. With every leader I coach I find we work on this.  It's not surprising though. Every day I read another post about how leaders need to tell their vision, share corporate values, communicate priorities and strategies

Three Ideas for Implementing Learner Reflection

Three Ideas for Implementing Learner Reflection | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
Educators have long recognized the importance and applicability of critical reflection across a wide range of educational settings, yet in practice it remains a challenging and nebulous concept for many to firmly grasp. In education, the concept of reflection dates back to the work of John Dewey (1933), who defined it as “active, persistent and careful consideration of any belief or supposed form of knowledge in the light of the grounds that support it and the further conclusion to which it tends” (p. 9). Dewey was the first to point out that experience alone does not constitute learning; instead, a conscious realization must occur for the experience to become a source of learning.

In examining the depth of reflection, Rogers (2001) made an influential and careful study and synthesis, while Peltier, Hay, and Drago (2005) put forward a way to evaluate different levels of reflective thinking, which include habitual actions, understanding, reflection, and critical reflection (refer to Weimer, 2012). Yet the void of ecologically valid classroom-based research on incorporating reflection to improve student learning has left teachers largely on their own when it comes to creating opportunities for reflection in their courses.

Empathy and Understanding in Ithaca – Better Angels 

Empathy and Understanding in Ithaca – Better Angels  | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

Sharpening differences” and“listening to understand”
By DANA LACROIX

On a sunny Saturday in Ithaca a group of 7 Democrats and 7 Republicans came together for a day, pulling their political opinions off the internet or out of the closet to engage in face-to-face conversation. The session was led by Better Angels moderators Bill Doherty, David Blankenhorn and David Lapp.

I think it’s fair to say that we were all a little trepidatious in the beginning and uncertain of what to expect but it was equally clear that we were all united in our desire to communicate. 

We spent the next 8 hours engaged in what was essentially a communication workshop. The structured conversation and small group exercises were peppered with coffee, lunch and snack breaks which gave us an opportunity to have one-on-one conversations and get to know each other on a more personal level.
