Educator Bandwidth: How to Reclaim Your Energy, Passion, and Time

Authors: Jane a. G. Kise, Ann Holm

It's time to make your mental bandwidth work for you. Being an educator is more stressful than ever, and teachers and administrators must constantly shift gears to stay on top of the newest initiatives and students' ever-changing needs. Educator Bandwidth: How to Reclaim Your Energy, Passion, and Time provides the tools and strategies to reduce stress, avoid burnout, and regain the time that gets lost to interruptions, temptations, competing demands, and task-switching.

The first step is to understand how much stress is weighing on your own mental bandwidth. Professional development experts Jane A. G. Kise and Ann Holm have developed the Brain Energy and Bandwidth Survey to help you self-assess the six key factors that contribute to bandwidth:

* Balance between priorities
* Filtering through possibilities
* Mental habits that improve focus
* Physical habits that fuel the brain
* Connection with others
* Workload and time management

Kise and Holm combine the latest neuroscience research with their own extensive experience working with educators to bring the most effective strategies and habits that help you manage your mental bandwidth and prioritize drains on mental energy. When you can establish good habits, focus on what's possible within your locus of control, and balance priorities, you can improve your educator bandwidth and feel more engaged, centered, and effective in your work.

Intentional Leadership: 12 Lenses for Focusing Strengths, Ma

Intentional Leadership: 12 Lenses for Focusing Strengths, Ma
Intentional Leadership: 12 Lenses for Focusing Strengths, Managing Weaknesses, and Achieving Your Purpose

Author - Jane Kise

Most executives lead with a purpose. Yet many lack self-knowledge, failing to recognise the limitations that accompany their strengths. They drive forward too boldly, unwittingly creating the potential for one slip or bump along the way to diminish their work and the respect of those they lead. That lack of self-knowledge may threaten a once promising career.

Intentional leaders, however, learn to focus on not only what they plan to accomplish, but also how they will lead others to get there. In Intentional Leadership, Jane A. G. Kise introduces the 12 Lenses for Leadership – a framework developed from extensive research on personality type and emotional intelligence that offers a meta-analysis of the essential tasks and attitudes of successful leaders. Through these lenses, you will learn:

1. How personality type informs decision making
2. How to identify and then compare your strengths and values to good leadership practice
3. How to identify your potential weaknesses and blind spots
4. How to use your strengths and weaknesses to optimise your leadership style.

With a provocative analysis and clear guidance, Intentional Leadership helps you align your purpose and actions to achieve your true potential as a leader.
