Nov 12th Newsletter

Here is the link to the Nov 12th newsletter.  My top 5 :

  1. I blogged about developing relationships. I strongly recommend this article on design principles and communication.  Although about patient-doctor conversations, it has takeaways for schools.  I can’t get the article out of my mind.
  2. In the American Catholic News section, the first three articles focus on controversies swirling around Pope Francis. If you want to take a close look at the brouhaha, read these articles.
  3. The first article in the Leadership section “Stop Asking Your Employees This One Question” is fascinating because it’s a question I used to ask as a principal.
  4. The second article in the Leadership section is deep dive research piece in the National Bureau of Economic Research entitled “Long-term Trends in Private School Enrollment.” It’s a monster!  But it’s full of great insights including the squeeze on middle class enrollees.  It’s great to get the research in order to spark change.
  5. For teachers, the first article in the Teaching & Learning section is entitled “9 Mistakes That Sabotage Your Classroom Management.” This is the time of year when teachers need all the help they can get!
