Changes to iLead2Serve Plus the Structural Thinking Teacher

I’ve told you many times that I don’t like to use the word, “busy.” However, I must make an exception for this post. I have been busy. My schedule has been such that I have been unable to communicate with you as often as I would like. Therefore, my goal for the rest of 2014, is to post iLead2Serve weekly instead of on a daily basis. Ideally, I’d like to post this blog on Tuesdays, but I have to start this new schedule today, which is Thursday. I guess we’ll just have to see how it goes.

The Structural Thinking Teacher Last week I failed to post about the thinking and behavioral preferences of your child’s teacher. In my last post on this topic, I discussed the thinking preference of an analytical teacher. Today, I am going to talk about the teacher who has the preference for structural thinking.

As a parent, you can expect this teacher to be practical, predictable, and likes guidelines and procedures.

Furthermore, the following are three things your child can expect from his structural preference thinking teacher: Just like assignments, tests will usually be given on the same day each week.

There is a high probability that students in this teacher’s class will have assigned seats well after the first 2 to 3 weeks of the school year.

Because this teacher likes guidelines, procedures, and protocol, your child will be expected to follow lots of rules from this teacher. If your child can follow this teacher’s rules, personal and professional, he might do well in this class.

Training and Development

My view from the stage when I spoke to more than 250 Enrichment Services employees at their annual Pre-Service/In-Service Day.

Thought for the Week

“Leaders touch a heart before they ask for a hand.” – John Maxwell

Coming Soon…

"Kelvin Redd bears his soul in sharing his own journey toward servant leadership. His forthright and honest account of his experiences provides meaningful insight into the importance of self-awareness in both our personal and professional lives. This book is an excellent resource for anyone seeking to define the person and/or leader he or she wants to become. It underscores the relationship between who we are and how we lead. His candid, unembellished style disarms the reader. The resulting vulnerability gives his message tremendous impact.” - Dr. Linda Hadley, Dean of the Turner College of Business, Columbus State University

I hope you have a good rest of your week. I'll see you next time!
