A bridge between two worlds : leadership among resettled Sudanese youth in an American city /

by Gale, Lacey | United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees 2011Description: PDF.Other title: New issues in refugee research. Research paper ; no. 211.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography pp. 22-26Summary: Humanitarian efforts are often focused on children in conflict, since the international legal definitions create a practical framework for addressing child-specific needs. Youth have different needs than children, however, and possess more potential to influence both the society around them and their home communities. Resettled youth face multiple transitions simultaneously, from conflict to third country resettlement and from child to adult. Their needs include not only the legal aspects of protection, but also the social and economic aspects, noted in UNHCR's Age, Gender and Diversity Mainstreaming strategy as the spheres in which most rights violations of persons of concern occur. The goal of this case study is to map resettled refugee youth participation and leadership in a particular context and to discuss how these findings apply to a broader humanitarian youth agenda. It became apparent over the course of this project that UNHCR is in the process of defining a discrete policy for youth. This case study identifies a cohort of young leaders in Maine who, along with their peers in the United States as well as other resettlement countries, have the potential to contribute to the formulation of UNHCR's policy on youth.Availability: (1)

Exploring leadership in vocational education and training /

by European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training.

Publisher: Luxembourg Publications Office of the European Union 2011Description: PDF.Other title: European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training..Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Cat. No: TI-BA-11-003-EN-N doi:10.2801/36572 Includes bibliographical referencesSummary: European policy on vocational education and training (VET) makes a strong link between the quality of education and the quality of teachers and trainers. Teaching staff are important stakeholders in implementing current VET reforms, and their training and professional development are crucial elements in ensuring quality. However, this working paper argues that the role of those managing and leading VET institutions must be more widely acknowledged and that the research base and policy initiatives specifically related to such staff ought to be strengthened. There is increasing evidence of the importance of leadership in education, though VET leaders have, so far, received only marginal attention. Leaders are crucial in implementing reforms and policy initiatives; they also serve as catalysts for change. The close links between VET and the labour market create specific opportunities for leadership but this has not yet been subjected to European research. This working paper presents some initial findings on leadership in VET in Europe. Cedefop's main objective for this paper is to raise awareness of VET leadership, introducing the topic and escorting it onto the European policy agenda. As the scope and depth of this paper is limited, it should be seen as an initial contribution to discussing leadership in VET.Availability: (1)

How the way we talk can change the way we work : seven languages for transformation. /

by Kegan, Robert | Lahey, Lisa Laskow.

Publisher: San Francisco, CA Jossey-Bass 2001Description: ix, 241 p.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 185-186) and index. Contents: Introduction: What do you really want . . . and what will you do to keep from getting it? -- Part One: The internal languages : building the new machine -- 1. From the language of complaint to the language of commitment -- 2. From the language of blame to the language of personal responsibility -- 3. From the language of New Year's resolutions to the language of competing commitments : diagnosing the immunity to change -- 4. From the language of big assumptions that hold us to the language of assumptions we hold : disturbing the immunity to change -- Part Two: The social languages : maintaining and upgrading the machine -- 5. From the language of prizes and praising to the language of ongoing regard -- 6. From the language of rules and policies to the language of public agreement -- 7. From the language of constructive criticism to the language of deconstructive criticism -- Part Three: Carrying on the work -- 8. Running the internal languages -- 9. Running the social languages -- Epilogue: Toward the transformation highway : transcending the limits of the Information Age.Summary: The authors argue that one of the main obstacles to organisational change is the third force of dynamic equilibrium, which too often moves things which have changed back to the way they were. They describe the early chapters of their book as the reflective equivalent of an Outward Bound ropes course : a set of personal experiences for readers to explore how they might work against the tendency to prevent or reverse change. Specifically, they suggest how people can move from the language of complaint to the language of commitment; from the language of blame to the language of personal responsibility; from the language of New Year s resolutions to the language of competing commitments and from the language of big assumptions that hold us to the language of assumptions that we hold.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Leadership for 21st century learning /

by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Publisher: Paris, France OECD 2013Description: 204 p. (Online Resource).Online Access: Website Summary: This volume is part of the influential series of OECD reports on Innovative Learning Environments. 'Learning leadership' is fundamental because it is about setting direction, taking responsibility for putting learning at the centre and keeping it there. This becomes increasingly complex in 21st century settings, calling for innovation and going beyond the heroics of individual leaders. Many need to be involved, bringing in diverse partners at different levels. This is all explored in this volume. It clarifies the concepts and the dimensions of learning leadership relating it to extensive international research and identifying promising strategies to promote it. Specific examples are drawn from Austria, Australia, Canada, Israel, Norway, Singapore, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. There is an extensive overview that addresses the 'why, what, how, who, where, and when' of learning leadership. Among the international experts contributing to this volume are James Spillane, John MacBeath, Louise Stoll, and Clive Dimmock. This report will prove to be a valuable resource for all those interested in schooling. It will be of particular interest to teachers and teacher educators, advisors and researchers, the voluntary sector and teacher associations, and, first and foremost, education leaders themselves.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
