2013 Special Education Directors’ Academy July 10-12, 2013—Vail Building Capacity Harvey Rude
“He who cannot change the very fabric of his thought will never be able to change reality …” (Anwar Sadat, 1978) “Any theory that makes progress is bound to be initially counterintuitive.” (Daniel Dennett, 1989)
Thomas Kuhn (The Structure of Scientific Revolutions) “There will never be enough data, evidence, research, proof, (etc.) that will convince others to commit to a created future. The reason for committing to the created future is based on the realization that the default future has failed to make the organization, system, people (etc.) complete.”
THE FOUR ASPECTS OF THE CONTEXTUAL FRAMEWORK Linguistic Abstractions (leader and leadership as “realms of possibility”) Phenomena (leader and leadership as experienced; that is, as what one observes or is impacted by, or as exercised) Concepts (the temporal domain in which leader and leadership function) Terms (leader and leadership as definitions)
Speaking from Listening The speaking of an effective leader comes from two sources: 1. What they intend to happen over where the listener is, and 2. From the listening of that listener. Notice when you are speaking because you have something to say as contrasted with when you are speaking because you want something to happen over where the listener is.
The Way You “Wound Up Being” By a year or two after graduating from high school, who you are as a person is pretty much set. That is, you are who you “wound up being”. For the most part from then on, who you “wound up being” is simply polished and perfected. A default opportunity set is one of complete freedom to be and act in any way that is appropriate to any situation.
The Winning Formula 1. Take a look back in your childhood and identify who you could never be. 2. What did you decide you would be instead as a compensation for that which you could never be?
