Here is the link to the April 30th Newsletter.  The top 5:

  1. Pope Francis’s TED talk is worth the effort. You can’t multitask and listen (who does that?) because it’s in Italian with subtitles.  It takes focus.  It wouldn’t have been too long ago that we would have said, “Why would the Pope have to give a TED talk?  He’s the Pope.”  But there he is, meeting a new group of people and getting his message out.
  2. Beth Foraker, the champion of inclusion, has a great blog post about Pope Francis and the Inclusion Summit.
  3. In the leadership section, I’ve included two articles about introverted leadership and resisting narcissistic leaders. They read well in tandem.
  4. In the Miscellaneous section, there’s a great article on brain research and memory. It’s not a superficial read!  At least, that’s how I remember it.
  5. There’s been quite a buzz about the Netflix series “13 Reasons” based on the book. Because the show tackles teen suicide it should set off your alarm bells.  Roy Petitfils, the counselor/author/podcaster/former youth minister and the presenter of the Catholic Schools retreat in August, conducted a Facebook Live session which he recorded.  Roy does a fantastic job of putting the show in context and arming teachers & youth ministers & parents with strategies.  It’s the best “13 Reasons” resource I’ve seen.
