The “new normal” paradox: What COVID-19 has revealed about higher education

Everywhere you turn, the idea that coronavirus has brought on a "new normal" is present and true. But for higher education, COVID-19 exposes a long list of pernicious old problems more than it presents new problems. It was widely known, yet ignored, that digital instruction must be embraced. When combined with traditional, in-person teaching, it can enhance student learning outcomes at scale.COVID-19 has forced institutions to understand that far too many higher education outcomes are determined...

What’s the Secret to Strong Leadership?

Guest post from Alain Hunkins: Over the past two decades, I’ve worked with thousands of teams, and tens of thousands of leaders in twenty-five countries around the world.   I’ve worked with every industry you can think of, as well as some industries you probably don’t know exist. On the surface, each team and company’s situation and issues were unique.

15 Collaboration Tools for Remote Teams (That Aren’t Slack)

Today, with so many employees working from home, maintaining productivity in an office requires tools that can connect teams through voice, chat, and video. Slack rules the roost as a top team collaboration software, but it’s far from being the only reliable one. Dozens of team collaboration tools have recently gained popularity. Some of them offer similar functionality to Slack and may even be better at some tasks; others are sorely lacking in utilities to help a team get organized. To help tho...

Engaging online learners 1

Photo by Steve Wheeler Engaging learners can be difficult in any context. Engaging them in online environments can amplify the problem. You're not in the room to intervene, and behaviour management is much more of a concern when you're separated from your students. It's not as if you can run down the corridor and bang a few heads together. All you have is your voice. And perhaps your social presence, if you know how to invoke it. From my experience in traditional classrooms lack of...

What should schools teach? Now is the moment to ask.

The coronavirus pandemic has left many at an interesting crossroads in terms of mapping out the future of their respective fields and industries. For schools, that may mean a total shift not only in how educators teach, but what they teach.One important strategy moving forward, thought leader Caroline Hill says, is to push back against the idea that getting ahead is more important than getting along. "The opportunity that education has in this moment to really push students and think about what ...

Embracing collaboration in the midst of scarcity

Many of us would probably say that we and our businesses operate in a world of scarcity, where my gain is at my competitor's expense. That's why it's so refreshing to read a story like this one from FastCompany, Why we opened our pandemic-born delivery platform to competitors. Despite the SBA's Paycheck Protection Program there are going to be countless businesses that never reopen. Some of them could probably be saved if that segment's business community worked together, rather than in oppositi...

Why savvy business people build relationship capital

Relationship capital is one of the most overlooked facets of doing good business, says investor and entrepreneur Daymond John. Savvy entrepreneurs know that digging into the relationships that they've nurtured for 5, 10, or 20 years is what pays the best dividends. That doesn't happen passively.

Be a better leader: Knowing the dangers of ‘yes men’

One of the potential dangers of being a successful leader is that the people around you stop challenging your decisions, no matter how bad or wrong they may be.Asserting dominance and establishing negative consequences for those who challenge your authority (such as firing or reprimanding offenders) only exacerbates the problem and adds to the toxic culture of unchecked power.Astronaut Garrett Reisman argues that while it's natural to want to be told that you're smart and right, it's important t...

Psychology of feedback: How to give or receive valuable critique

Feedback is a gift, says business psychologist Dr Melanie Katzman.

Katzman suggests creating a psychological contract with a partner who you respect and trust. In that contract, you agree to exchange extremely honest feedback by mutual consent in a safe and trusting way.In this video, she lays out the rules for such a contract and how you can embark on one.

Are you superior to others? Or is it an illusion?

Most problems for leaders are self-inflicted. It's important for leadership to reflect on the standards and expectations they set for themselves before they set incredibly high standards and expectations for other members of their team. Executive coach and transformation expert Peter Fuda reminds that, for the most part, we judge ourselves by our intentions while we judge others by their actions. Being cognizant of this illusory superiority can help increase compassion and connection within a te...
