Educators will do just about whatever it takes to get the job done. You’d almost think they’re superhuman. Almost. But they’re not. Either are you. Superhuman only exists in comic books.
A few weeks ago, I went to The Goat Rodeo leadership series hosted by J. Forrest of Employee Strategies, Inc. and Nathan Eklund of Eklund Consulting. Their guest was Thad Levine, General Manager of the Minnesota Twins.
Nathan Eklund describes how Eklund Consulting uses data, such as the School Workplace Satisfaction Survey, to help make schools great places to work.
Never mind the title of this post. Nathan Eklund wants to ask a better question. "Do you think?"
Disclaimer: Hello readers! I think it’s been almost 9 months since I’ve posted. It’s not for lack of fodder. Since I last wrote I’ve started my second book (where my writing energy has been funneled). I’ve worked with countless organizations and leaders and have been almost always the “right kind of busy.” That said, I’ve missed this forum.
This is the time of the year to give advice to young people. We have all watched many of our favorite celebrities/innovators/speakers give commencement speeches to help guide our young people as they reach milestones in their lives. In this week's #TBT post, Nate Eklund gives some similar advice in the form of a letter. Even though it was from October 2012, the message still resonates today.
All organizations face change and chaos. Nathan Eklund discusses a common reaction to these stressors and how these situations are opportunity to lead.
Today is our 5th birthday. May 20, 2011 was the official day Eklund Consulting became “legit” – at least according to the state of Minnesota.
I feel like I could write so much today as my heart and head are so full on this important day in my life. But I’ll reduce it down to some headings and bullet points for the sake of brevity and in hopes of spanning some of the depth and width of my appreciation.
At this time of year, educators can often feel as the end of the school year cannot come fast enough. Also, it seems as though the end of the year is coming way too fast. One of our many contradictions in education. In this week's #TBT post, Nathan Eklund discusses "Crisis Mode" and why it is okay to embrace it.
There are two sides to every coin. Knives cut in both directions. Either glass has the same amount of water in the end.
Trusting and empowering people and letting them be in charge of their own work is really laudable and great. Until it isn’t anymore.
