6 Leadership Styles, And When You Should Use Them

6 Leadership Styles, And When You Should Use Them
You don’t need an MP3 player, a turntable, or a CD player to listen to Tristan Perich’s new album, Noise Patterns. All you need is a pair of headphones—"not earbuds," says the composer—and a willingness to hear music in noise. The 34-year-old Perich’s compositions push the border between white noise and electronic music, frequently straddling the two as if the static on your old television started emitting a strangely beautiful pattern of sound.

New roles and the competencies required to perform them are evolving. One overriding role for all of us is that of the leader. The complexity of the changes we experience leads to many unfamiliar situations in which deep learning is necessary to successfully work through the problems and challenges. Scholar Warren Bennis calls these “crucible” experiences. What Makes a Leader? It was Daniel Goleman who first brought the term “emotional intelligence” to a wide audience with his 1995 book of that name, and it was Goleman who first applied the concept to business with his 1998 HBR article, reprinted here. In his research at nearly 200 large, global companies, Goleman found that while the qualities traditionally associated with leadership—such as intelligence, toughness, determination, and vision—are required for success, they are insufficient. Truly effective leaders are also distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence, which includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill. These qualities may sound “soft” and unbusinesslike, but Goleman found direct ties between emotional intelligence and measurable business results. Every businessperson knows a story about a highly intelligent, highly skilled executive who was promoted into a leadership position only to fail at the job. Evaluating Emotional Intelligence

Curriculum Design and Mapping As a central task of curriculum design and mapping, we align learning outcomes with teaching and assessment strategies. This ensures that graduates from any course or program achieve the stated aims and objectives. Although you can map individual courses, it is most useful if you consider and conduct course design and mapping as part of a program review and revision process. When you analyse a completed curriculum map, you will see gaps where attributes could be embedded, and you'll also notice areas of over-concentration, where one aspect of the course is responsible for developing several attributes

Three Elements of Great Communication, According to Aristotle - Scott Edinger by Scott Edinger | 9:00 AM January 17, 2013 In my nearly 20 years of work in organization development, I’ve never heard anyone say that a leader communicated too much or too well. On the contrary, the most common improvement suggestion I’ve seen offered up on the thousands of 360 evaluations I’ve reviewed over the years is that it would be better if the subject in question learned to communicate more effectively.
