I particularly like the part that concerns  to train for positive assertion versus constant compliance. The compliance to please teachers versus the ownership of learning all  to please parents often provides a conflict for me. 

Jenn Alevy's comment, January 13, 2014 3:44 AM
The only concern I have and I have not read the book, is that her assertions seem to be feeding into the culture of fear and would like to see the stats she refers to when she says youth crime is on the rise. And whose morals is she talking about? People come from a variety of countries and cultures, I hope she does not assume we are all on the same page about 'moral' issues, she may be more conservative while others are more liberal in their beliefs.

This is an important article. Some teachers find themselves in situations where they are teaching ethical behaviour to children. This is worth a read.

Why Your Employees Want To Leave - Time to Install 21st Century Values

Why Your Employees Want To Leave - Time to Install 21st Century Values | School Psychology Tech |

Dana Theus, in "The Values Revolution", dares leaders and managers to look into why employees want to leave their jobs.


Employees are exhausted by the cut-throat, grab what you can, self-centered leadership and management actions that have dominated 20th century business and have too often characterized the path to which results were achieved.

Employees are leaving seeking workplaces that value people and outcomes grounded in purpose and meaning.

...cooperation, communication, and sharing, are leadership actions that lead to prosperity in today’s hyper connected workplaces. 


.... [it is the] responsibility on the individual leader to own their response to the abysmal work environment that is suffocating our workplaces.


...[instead, change] life-sucking workplaces to discover joy, optimism and possibility at work.

This reminds me of Adam Grant's recent research featuring the high performance results of Giving Cultures, vs. Matching or Taking.   21st century values may let go of  "Mad Men" macho culture for good, for the sustainable, high performance it creates.  ~  D
