The Reflective Leader [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Principal Influence by Pete Hall,Deborah Childs-Bowen,Ann Cunningham-Morris,Phyllis Pajardo,Alisa Simeral Book Resume:

Principals navigate the dynamic complexities and subtleties of their schools every day. They promote, facilitate, and lead efforts to achieve both tangible and intangible results throughout the school community. They fulfill a role that includes counseling, budgeting, inspiring, teaching, learning, disciplining, evaluating, celebrating, consoling, and a million other critical functions. As the principalship has evolved and grown, so have the expectations of it. With that in mind, ASCD developed the Principal Leadership Development Framework (PLDF). The PLDF establishes a clear and concise definition of leadership and includes clear targets that support the ongoing growth and development of leaders. Using the Framework, principals will learn to capitalize on their leadership roles: * Principal as Visionary * Principal as Instructional Leader * Principal as Engager * Principal as Learner and Collaborator The PLDF also offers 17 criteria of effective practice that allow leaders to focus on behaviors that have the greatest direct effect on the culture and status of learning and teaching. Coupled with the PLDF are tools for self-reflection that help principals identify and strengthen their reflective habits. Whether you want to develop your own capacities or support the development of a group of principals, assistant principals, or aspiring principals, The Principal Influence can help channel your efforts in ways that promote successful teaching and student learning.

Reflective Leaders and High-Performance Organizations

The Reflective Leader [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Reflective Leaders and High-Performance Organizations by Nick A. Shepherd,Peter J. Smyth Book Resume:

An organization operating in the twenty-first century is different from one that operated during the Industrial Revolution. Todays focus is on optimizing human potential; people are the enablers of most aspects of intangible value. People develop relationships with suppliers, customers, distributors, and other third parties through which work is executed. In Reflective Leaders and High-Performance Organizations, authors Nick Shepherd and Peter Smyth take an integrated view of organizational performance that blends a focus on both outcomes and relationships. Reflective Leaders and High-Performance Organizations suggests a framework for developing and applying an improved approach to organizational leadership and management. In addition to philosophy and conceptual approaches, it presents tested practical tools and direction. It also delivers case studies of organizations that have applied Shepherds and Smyths ideas and realized measurable improvements in the day-to-day activities of the organization, along with measurably improved outcomes from the organizational activity. Using over twenty years of practical consulting experience as well as careers in management, Shepherd and Smyth demonstrate how effective leaders can maintain a focus on organizational tasks and outcomes and do this while building and enhancing human relationships.

Faculty Leadership

The Reflective Leader [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Faculty Leadership by Sue Wells,Lisa McCaie,Megan Barker,Marilyn Herie Book Resume:

At its heart, outstanding teaching is about leadership, and reflective practice is the essential foundation for advancing academic leadership in the classroom and beyond. Teaching in higher education is a complex and multi-faceted endeavor. It is highly creative, relational, dynamic and inspiring, and also demanding in a context of changing student expectations and the proliferation of knowledge across all disciplines and professions. Given that learning is completely volitional on the part of your students, high-impact teaching involves inspiring, motivating and facilitating rich and authentic learning experiences. Within all of the complexity of the teaching role, how do you know where you are most effective, and where you can further grow and develop? Reflective practice is the key! Whether you are new to teaching or are an experienced college faculty member, this manual offers a roadmap for your own personal journey of discovery and growth, with a wide range of tools and resources to help you in advancing your teaching excellence. The activities and resources in this manual have been drawn from research and scholarship on teaching in higher education, as well as the lived experience of a diverse group of faculty members and other academic leaders, to support you in your learning journey across the many dimensions of your role. Personal stories, case examples, and reflections from faculty colleagues are offered throughout, bringing the material to life and establishing direct linkages with the ‘art and science’ of teaching and learning. I believe the time spent on reflection is a gift; it allows us the distance necessary to understand the complexity, joy, challenges and learnings of a set of experiences, and then, most critically, to peel apart our emotions and expectations, basking in what worked and adapting to what’s next. This guide offers the tools to get the most from that gift. Whether a new practitioner or seasoned faculty, reflective practice supports your development as an academic leader, making for experiences that are more meaningful for you, and for your students. Ann Buller President and CEO, Centennial College As a faculty member, this Reflective Practice Guide has numerous activities that will help you to not only reflect on teaching excellence but will assist you in developing your ideal teaching self. All the activities in this Reflective Practice Guide were so inspiring to do and reaffirmed my passion for teaching. This manual can help you as faculty to develop to your full potential.

As One with Authority, Second Edition

The Reflective Leader [Pdf/ePub] eBook

As One with Authority, Second Edition by Jackson W. Carroll Book Resume:

Congregations today face both old and often new, unprecedented challenges--spiritual, moral, technological, and economic--for which there are no easy solutions. Facing such challenges calls for pastors able to lead with authority in ways at the same time faithful to the gospel and appropriate to the congregation's setting and the issues at hand. Yet many pastors are unsure of their authority, often experiencing conflict as they attempt to lead. Others have abused their authority and brought mistrust and suspicion to ordained ministry, making it difficult for other clergy to lead. In this book, a new and revised edition of his earlier, highly regarded work on pastoral authority and leadership, Jackson Carroll brings together theological and sociological perspectives to provide an interpretation of pastoral authority as reflective leadership, a style of leadership that involves vision and discernment, and that is appropriate for the many roles in which pastors engage--preaching, worship leadership, teaching, counseling, and shaping the congregation's corporate life. In this new edition Carroll draws on what he has learned from many conversations with pastors and lay leaders since the book's initial publication as well as insights from others. He also introduces helpful new case material from practicing pastors and incorporates the perspectives of several recent leadership theorists and practitioners to deepen and enhance the discussion of pastoral authority as reflective leadership.
