SISL: A Quiet Revolution Dr Neil Hawkes

A society holds together through the quality of its shared values (virtues), which are produced through a shared conversation. (Sachs, 1997) What appears to be missing from many schools and society at large is a shared vocabulary, based on shared positive human values, which can provide a sense of direction and vision about how to create a stable moral society. The purpose of this paper is to argue that teaching about positive human values (e.g. respect, honesty, compassion, care, humility and responsibility) improves the quality of education in schools. A way of conceptualising education that places the search for meaning and purpose at the heart of the educational process. Such teachers are authentic, meaning that they seek to achieve congruence between their thoughts, feelings and actions. Recommendations Dr. Berghof Peace Support.

At a more practical level, at different times and to a different extent, managers need to be able both to manage and lead according to their position in the organisation. Those with a more academic interest can read how systemic leadership draws on the management discipline of systems thinking in basic principles of systems thinking as applied to management and leadership.

And if you are interested in how the discipline of systems thinking has developed and which aspects are particularly relevant to systemic leadership today, then read the historical link between systems thinking and leadership. European Systemic Risk Board. Systemic Competitiveness.
