The Best Use of Words Successful leaders lift people; poor leaders drain them. You either bring vitality or you exhaust. Recently a leader from a Fortune 500 company that I’ve worked with reminded me of something I wrote. Who have you encouraged in the last day or week? Encouragement: Encouragement infuses others with courage, hope, and confidence. Express encouragement. Ask people, “What encourages you?” Bonus: Be specific when giving compliments and don’t add but’s. There’s no middle ground when it comes to encouragement. What could you do to encourage someone today? What encouragement tips can you suggest?

Vi ville seile et vikingskip til OL i England for å takke britene for at de gav oss evangeliet for 1000 år siden. Som en del av vår takk, ville vi ha med oss 1000 personer for å arbeide sammen med lokale kirker under OL. Siden ideene først kom på bordet, har vi jobbet jevnt og trutt med å se visjonene flytte seg fra tegnebrettet til virkelighet. I går kveld møtte vi med et femtitalls kirkeledere i Newcastle. Nå er det opp til oss å rekruttere 1000 nordmenn til å bli med. Mer info?
Improve Efficiency Moving a company forward takes more than a well-formulated strategy and good implementation processes: ultimately it comes down to how well each individual executive gets things done. Successful execution at an organizational level depends almost entirely on each individual manager executing his or her part promptly and efficiently. The challenge for business leaders, then, is making sure that all of their managers stay on track and on task. Here are 10 rules that can help. 1. If it's not on the calendar, it won't happen. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. In measuring a company's success we often refer to profits or the bottom line when looking at the big picture.

Alltid kristen? « "På sporet av sannhet" Publisert: 31/01/2012 av FIH i Uncategorized Av: Arne Helge Teigen Nå vil jeg skrive noen ord til dem som har vokst opp i et kristent hjem, og ikke kan huske noe annet enn at de hele tiden har vært kristne. Det er grunn både for dem og andre til å takke Gud for at de har fått leve sammen med Jesus hele oppveksten. Det er ikke mindreverdig å ikke ha en omvendelsesdato å se tilbake på, eller å si at en ble frelst i dåpen som barn. Samtidig kan det være til hjelp for de som er i en slik situasjon å være klar over at oppvekst og personlig modning fører med seg et behov for å få klarhet i om en virkelig er frelst. “…de som alltid har regnet seg som kristne må ofte gjennom en prosess…” Hvordan den enkelte opplever denne prosessen er forskjellig. Det er naturlig for en kristen å søke seg ut av tvil og usikkerhet med hensyn til spørsmålet om en er frelst eller ikke, og det er særlig viktig å ha klart for seg at bare ordet om Jesus kan gi hjelp og visshet om den saken. Les Jesaja 40. 1 – 2:
Two Lists You Should Look at Every Morning - Peter Bregman by Peter Bregman | 11:00 AM May 27, 2009 I was late for my meeting with the CEO of a technology company and I was emailing him from my iPhone as I walked onto the elevator in his company’s office building. I stayed focused on the screen as I rode to the sixth floor. I was still typing with my thumbs when the elevator doors opened and I walked out without looking up. Then I heard a voice behind me, “Wrong floor.” The world is moving fast and it’s only getting faster. So we try to speed up to match the pace of the action around us. But that’s a mistake. Never before has it been so important to say “No.” It’s hard to do because maybe, just maybe, that next piece of information will be the key to our success. A study of car accidents by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute put cameras in cars to see what happens right before an accident. Now is a good time to pause, prioritize, and focus. List 1: Your Focus List (the road ahead)What are you trying to achieve?
What Happens After Teacher Leaders Meet? - Leading From the Classroom On Friday, August 3, the US Department of Education hosted Transforming the Teaching Profession: A Teacher Leader Convening. The purpose of the meeting was to gather teacher leaders from various education organizations to identify priorities and develop strategies to move the RESPECT Project vision forward. I had the opportunity to attend this event in my new position as a Director of Educator Engagement at the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) and as a former Teacher Ambassador with ED. The RESPECT document has evolved to be an impressive document. There are different perspectives on these issues, and it's critical to have these thoughts articulated in a single document to guide discussions. Us and Them... During the morning part of the convening, teachers and other educators from the various organizations discussed what the US Department of Education (ED) needs to do to advance the components outlined in RESPECT.

GSI Uganda 4 Signs of a True Entrepreneur People often wonder how the kid who rarely talked or wasn't particularly popular in class went on to become a start-up genius. What was it about that person that helped him or her blossom into an icon of entrepreneurship? And how can you make sure you have what it takes? It's a combination of factors. Start with these: Passion Passion is the fuel that drives the creation of dreams. Conviction Passion without conviction is like a shooting star that fizzles before you even fully realize it's there. Lunacy Let's face it: You have to be a little bit crazy to achieve extreme success. Need for approval Before the "how they did it" question comes the "why". If the list above describes you, congratulations.
Leadership & Change As technology and globalization transform our economy and civic sphere, educators must rise to the challenge of preparing students for an ever more complex and cognitively demanding world. Education leaders are often faced with the challenge of encouraging teacher innovation while maintaining academic rigor and student performance. When we work with school leaders, we focus our discussions around three core questions: Why Change? - Making the case for 21st century skills instructionWhat Does Change Look Like? To examine the role that technology can play in helping students develop these skills, we work with school leaders to immerse ourselves in hands-on practice with iPads, mobile devices, and Web 2.0 tools, examining several key conceptual frameworks, as well as a suite of strategies for guiding and supporting change in the instructional core. Our leadership workshops also examine issues of the performance assessment with 21st century teaching and learning.
