3 Leadership Through Empowerment Raymond J. McNulty, President International Center for Leadership in Education

4 Why Empowerment? Arent the leaders trained to do this leadership stuff? Dont complex problems demand a complex set of specialists to solve them? I am a teacher, parent, student, community person, business person.. ……I have my role you have yours!

5 Expertise can sometimes be a road block to problem solving. Experts see their points as critical to resolution, without sometimes valuing the thinking of others.

6 -Shurnyu Suzuki In the beginners mind there are many possibilities; in the experts mind there are few.

7 Why good spread sheets make bad strategies. We live in a world obsessed with science, predictability and control. If we cant measure it, it doesnt count!

8 We must consider the possibility that if we cant measure something, it might be the very most important thing!

9 Mary Dunns kindergarten is a busy place. While she works with John in one corner of the room, Sally spills her paints in another. Sally begins to cry softly. Linda, another student, comes over to Sally, puts her arm around her, and then helps to clean up the paint.

10 Poll the audience

11 Principal Arlene Gore always includes a session in her faculty meetings for teachers to raise issues. Today, Chuck Green complains about how the students dont move along in the hallways between classes. This causes large groups blocking the way, loud rough housing, and potential intimidation for younger students. Arlene asks everyone to take a few minutes to write down why he or she thinks students behave in this way. After sharing in small groups and then in the full group, about six teachers volunteer to form a team to study the situation. One teacher suggests that one or two of the worst offending students be invited to work with the team. This idea meets with a mixed reaction.

25 25 Empowering the students Day of Pink: A day to stand against bullying, harassment, and discrimination

26 Period 1 Day of Pink is a day of action, born when a youth in a high school in Cambridge, Nova Scotia was bullied because he wore a pink shirt to school. His fellow students decided to stand up to bullying; and hundreds of students came to school wearing pink to show support for diversity and stopping discrimination. What do you feel makes you different or unique? Have you ever felt this puts you at risk for being bullied or harassed?

27 27 Empowering the students Quick-Writes: (3-5 minute writings) Describe a time you have been made fun of or harassed for being or looking different. How did you deal with it? Have you ever teased or made fun of someone for being or looking different, or witnessed someone else doing this and didnt speak up? Write about why you think you did that, and thinking back, what should you have done?
