Your Child's Social Thinking Teacher

Wow! I can’t believe the summer has come and gone, at least that’s the case if you have a child going back to school this week. My youngest daughter returns to the classroom tomorrow for her senior year. Excuse me if I am in a reflective mood, but time sure does fly. It seems like it was only yesterday that I was playing the boogey man and chasing her through the house.

Anywho, in this week’s edition of iLead2Serve, I will discuss:

  • Your Child’s Social Thinking Teacher 
  • Training and Development
  • Quote for the Week
  • Define Your Destiny: A Self-Awareness Journey Toward Servant Leadership (New Endorsement Update)

Your Child’s Social Thinking Teacher

Your child’s social preference thinking teacher exudes many qualities and most all will be people-related. She is relational. More than likely, she has never met a student she didn’t like. When given a choice, her students will participate in many group activities. However, if she is self-aware, she will be highly sympathetic and comforting to the students who aren’t averse to such exercises like the Analytical thinking student who might find such activities a little annoying. The Social thinking teacher is also intuitive about people. If she senses something is not right with your child—out of balance—rest assured she will be the first to detect it.

Training and Development

July and early August are two of the busiest times of the year for me. I enjoy presenting the Emergenetics workshop, especially to teachers. Notice the teachers above came to the workshop dressed in their MPA (Most Preferred Attribute) thinking colors. Of the more than 50 teachers, only three had a preference for Conceptual Thinking. Can you guess how they like to have decorate their classrooms?

New Endorsement Update

"Through personal stories and thought-provoking questions at the end of each section, Define Your Destiny prompts readers to reflect upon their own experiences in a journey of self-awareness. Since self-awareness is key to being a successful and effective leader, this book would serve as a great tool to helping someone figure out if they are on the right path."- Alicia Hazen, Director of the Student Leadership Center, College of Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison
