Understanding Leadership Perspectives Matthew R. Fairholm 2009-04-05 hand. Indeed, we do not easily move out of one mind-set into another. What we believe to be true given our particular experience often seems to be the only truth. Often we need some outside force to trigger reevaluation and rethinking. That triggering force to intellectual growth may be a new idea, a new situation, a new value, a new boss, or some other significant emotional event – maybe, even, a new book. The Resear ch F oundation This book is founded on two pillars: one, a model of five leadership mind-sets c- mon in the last 100 years first presented in Gilbert W. Fairholm ’s (1998a, 1998b) book, Perspectives on Leadership: From the Science of Management to its Spiritual Heart ; and two, Matthew R. Fairholm’s (2002) dissertation, Conceiving Leadership: Exploring Five Perspectives of Leadership by Investigating the Conceptions and Experiences of Selected Metropolitan Washington Area Municipal Managers , which analyzed and validated the perspectives model (see the Appendix for more details). The data collected confirm there are five distinct perspectives of leadership evident in the 100-year history of leadership study and practice. The resulting model defines the five perspectives in terms of descriptions of leadership in action, leadership tools and behaviors, and the way leaders approach their relationship to followers. The five perspectives are related hierarchically so that they progressively encompass a unique perspective of the leadership phenomenon.

A Self Made of Words Carl H. Klaus 2013-11-01 Confident or fretful, solemn or sassy, tough or tender, casual or formal: the self you project in writing—your persona—is the byproduct of numerous decisions you make about what to say and how to say it. Though any single word or phrase or sentence might make little difference within the scope of an entire essay or book, collectively they create an impression of who you are or seem to be—an impression that’s sure to influence how readers respond to your work. Thus it’s essential to take charge of how you come across on the page, to craft an appropriate persona for whatever you’re writing, whether it’s a personal essay, a blog, a technical report, a letter to the editor, or a memoir. In this wise and ingenious little guide, noted essayist Carl Klaus shows you how to adapt your self to the needs of such varied nonfiction, by varying his own persona to illustrate the distinctive effect produced by each aspect and element of writing. Klaus divides his book into two parts: first, an introduction to the nature and function of a persona, then a survey of the most important elements of writing that contribute to the character of a persona, from point of view and organization to diction and sentence structure. Both parts contain exercises that will give you practice in developing a persona of your choice. Challenging and stimulating, each of his exercises focuses on a distinctly different aspect of composition and style, so as to help you develop the skills of a versatile and personable writer. By focusing on the most important ways of projecting your self in nonfiction prose, you can learn to craft a distinctive self in your writing.

A Taxonomy for Learning, Teaching, and Assessing Benjamin Samuel Bloom 2001 This revision of Bloom's taxonomy is designed to help teachers understand and implement standards-based curriculums. Cognitive psychologists, curriculum specialists, teacher educators, and researchers have developed a two-dimensional framework, focusing on knowledge and cognitive processes. In combination, these two define what students are expected to learn in school. It explores curriculums from three unique perspectives-cognitive psychologists (learning emphasis), curriculum specialists and teacher educators (C & I emphasis), and measurement and assessment experts (assessment emphasis). This revisited framework allows you to connect learning in all areas of curriculum. Educators, or others interested in educational psychology or educational methods for grades K-12.

The Book of Jane Jennifer Habel 2020-04-01 The Book of Jane is a perceptive, tenacious investigation of gender, authority, and art. Jennifer Habel draws a contrast between the archetype of the lone male genius and the circumscribed, relational lives of women. Habel points repeatedly to discrepancies of scale: the grand arenas of Balanchine, Einstein, and Matisse are set against the female miniature—the dancer’s stockings, the anonymous needlepoint, the diary entry, the inventory of a purse.

Soldiers of the Freedom Rock Brick R. Imerman 2015-01-24 "Soldiers of the Freedom Rock: Stories of Guthrie County Iowa's Combat Veterans" tells the historic tales of 26 veterans from rural, south central Iowa. The battlefield dramas span from World War II through the most current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, including compelling stories in the air, on the ground, and at sea. Author Brick R. Imerman, a retired Navy F/A-18 Hornet squadron commander, was encouraged by local readers to write this book after penning a six-month veterans series, entitled "The Freedom Rock Series," which appeared in the local newspaper. Imerman's stories of local combat heroism were used as inspiration by nationally-renowned artist Ray "Bubba" Sorensen for his artwork on the Guthrie County Freedom Rock Veterans' Memorial, which was painted in Guthrie Center, Iowa, during the summer of 2014. "Soldiers of the Freedom Rock" intertwines the tales of combat heroism with the painting of the Freedom Rock to create a moving tribute, not only for the veterans described in the book, but for veterans and freedom lovers everywhere. Full color with over 100 historic photographs, "Soldiers of the Freedom Rock" documents one small corner of the larger mosaic of combat heroism from our nation's military. Included in the book: firsthand accounts from airmen in B-24 and B-17 bombers who braved the skies above Nazi controlled Europe, some who gave their lives, and others who were shot down, but lived to tell about it; the story of a soldier who survived both his Sherman tank sinking off Omaha Beach on D-Day and blazing tank battles in the Ardennes, only to be killed mere weeks before war's end; a sailor's story of bravery firing from a tiny gun mount on the destroyer USS Hoel into the giant Japanese battleship Yamato before perishing beneath the waves at the historic Battle off Samar; the daring tale of a 15-year-old British girl who was nearly killed the first day Nazi bombers attacked London, who went on to serve her nation, ultimately becoming a U.S. citizen; and dozens of other riveting stories spanning through Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Including the stories of eight officers and 18 enlisted personnel - ranking from Private to Major General - from the Navy, Marine Corps, Army, and Air Force, "Soldiers of the Freedom Rock" has a story for every veteran, male or female.

IOWA Nancy Rexroth 2017-04-04 In the early 1970s, Nancy Rexroth began photographing the rural landscapes, children, white frame houses, and domestic interiors of southeastern Ohio with a plastic toy camera called the Diana. Working with the camera's properties of soft focus and vignetting, and further manipulating the photographs by deliberately blurring or sometimes overlaying them, Rexroth created dreamlike, poetic images of "my own private landscape, a state of mind." She called this state IOWA because the photographs seemed to reference her childhood summer visits to relatives in Iowa. Rexroth self-published her evocative images in 1977 in the book IOWA, and the photographic community responded immediately and strongly to the work. Aperture published a portfolio of IOWA images in a special issue, The Snapshot, alongside the work of Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, and Emmet Gowin. The International Center for Photography, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Smithsonian Institution included IOWA images in group exhibitions. Forty years after its original publication, IOWA has become a classic of fine art photography, a renowned demonstration of Rexroth's ability to fashion a world of surprising aesthetic possibilities using a simple, low-tech dollar camera. Long out of print and highly prized by photographers and photobook collectors, IOWA is now available in a hardcover edition that includes twenty-two previously unpublished images. Accompanying the photographs are a new foreword by Magnum photographer and book maker Alec Soth and an essay by internationally acclaimed curator Anne Wilkes Tucker, who affirms the continuing power and importance of IOWA within the photobook genre. New postscripts by Nancy Rexroth and Mark L. Power, who wrote the essay in the first edition, complete the volume.

Driftless Danny Wilcox Frazier 2007 In Driftless, Danny Wilcox Fraziers dramatic black-and-white photographs portray a changing Midwest of vanishing towns and transformed landscapes. As rural economies fail, people, resources, and services are migrating to the coasts and cities, as though the heart of America was being emptied. Fraziers arresting photographs take us into Iowas abandoned places and illuminate the lives of those people who stay behind and continue to live there. These families, linked to the heartland by generations before them, are joined by more recent arrivals: Lubavitcher Hasidic Jews praying, Amish women laughing together over cards, Mennonites walking down a dirt road, Latinos working in the field. Fraziers camera finds these newcomers while it also captures activities that seemingly have gone on forever; harvesting and hunting, celebrating and socializing, praying and surviving. This collection of photographs is a portrait of contemporary rural Iowa, but it is also more that that. It shows what is happening in many rural and out-of-the-way communities all over the United States, where people find ways to get by in the wake of closing factories and the demise of family farms. Taken by a true insider who has lived in Iowa his entire life, Fraziers photographs are rich in emotion and give expression to the hopes and desires of the people who remain, whose needs and wants are complicated by the economic realities remaking rural America. Poetic and dark but illuminated with flashes of insight, Fraziers stunning images evoke the brilliance of Robert Franks The Americans.
