#SOL22 #9

Over in EPIClearners, a community I co-lead, we are doing a slow read of Brené Brown’s book Dare to Lead and how we can apply her leadership ideas in the classroom. In this week’s reading, Brown retells a story of Colonel DeDe Halfhill’s (Air Force Global Strike Command) experience in applying Brown’s ideas. (Convoluted much?) Halfhill was startled to discover the Air Force leadership manual from 1948 has a far more human approach to dealing with the emotions military personnel experience than the current one does! As a “play” activity, we are examining that 1948 guide and reflecting on how those long-ago words apply to our present-day environments. Come join us!

    That sounds really interesting! I picked up that book at a bookstore this weekend and almost bought it. I’m glad to hear it could be connected to the classroom. I may have to buy it!

      Yes, on her website, she has a “hub” dedicated to Daring Classrooms, complete with downloadable guides for discussions.
