The transforming leader : new approaches to leadership for the twenty-first century by Carol Pearson( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No organizational leaders can succeed in today's fast evolving and highly connected world on their own. To succeed, today's leaders must not only optimize all their own faculties--mental sharpness, emotional depth, imagination, and creativity--but also utilize the full capacities of those around them in a collaborative and creative manner. The prestigious contributors to this volume draw on psychology, sociology, neuroscience, social networking theory, organizational change theory, myths and traditions, and actual experiences to discover how leaders today achieve transformational results. The Transforming Leader offers an overview of what transformational leadership is, how it works, and how it is evolving. In doing so it reframes the challenge of leading in today's interdependent, unpredictable world

To teach with soft eyes : reflections on a teacher/leader formation experience by Rica, Ed Garcia( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph describes the reflections of the first pilot group of teachers in the Fetzer Institute's Courage to Teach Program. A group of scholars at Richland College were the first to apply the institute's program to higher education. The essays in this collection were written by teachers and administrators who have worked together, and in solitude, to explore the inner landscape of an educator's life. Here they report on what they discovered during those explorations and how their discoveries have illumined, challenged, and changed their lives as educators. This collection of essays is divided into five sections: (1) "The Courage to Change"; (2) "Safe Space"; (3) "Deep Listening"; (4) "We Teach Who We Are"; and (5) "Under the Surface: Our Stories." Essayists and articles include: (1) "Heron-to-Gull Leadership" (Stephen K. Mittelstet); (2) "The Journey or the Destination?" (Bill Neal); (3) "Back to the Future with Savoir-Faire?" (Bettie Tully); (4) "The Symphonic Winds of Teaching" (Sara Perez-Ramos); (5) "From Neiman-Marcus to Meditation" (Mary Frances Gibbons); (6) "a Personal Journey in a Public Arena" (Barbara Corvey); (7) "Safe Space" (Sally Jackman); (8) "The 'Nocebo' Effect in Academia" (Thomas A.

Love & solidarity : James Lawson & nonviolence in the search for workers rights( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Love and Solidarity is an exploration of nonviolence and organizing through the life and teachings of Rev. James Lawson. Lawson provided crucial strategic guidance while working with Martin Luther King, Jr., in southern freedom struggles and the Memphis sanitation strike of 1968. Moving to Los Angeles in 1974, Lawson continued his nonviolence organizing in multi-racial community and worker coalitions that have helped to remake the LA labor movement. Through interviews and historical documents, acclaimed labor and civil rights historian Michael Honey and award-winning filmmaker Errol Webber put Lawson's discourse on nonviolent direct action on the front burner of today's struggles against economic inequality, racism and violence, and for human rights, peace, and economic justice

Studying mind-body health at community colleges : toward a comprehensive understanding of health by Washington, DC American Association of Community Colleges( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication addresses the field of mind-body health and examines ways in which the study of connections between our minds and bodies might be integrated into the community college curriculum. It includes suggestions for community college leaders; offers three background papers that introduce and elaborate on the meaning of mind-body health and that provide the results of a nationwide survey on the current status of mind-body studies on community college campuses and the degree of community college interest in this field for future; and provides a listing of mind-body health resources. Community colleges have traditionally responded in timely, innovative ways to the educational needs of the citizens they serve. Growth in public awareness of the possibilities that mind-body health presents, when juxtaposed with a striking lack of public information and education about the field and its evolving knowledge base, offers the community college the kind of challenge it is accustomed to meeting. Through the range of ways in which it delivers education--academic disciplines, community services, and continuing education--community colleges can help the members of their respective communities understand what mind-body health is, how it can complement traditional medicine, and what options it offers them.
