    1. So what now? For all the talk of SHM’s success, HM’s positive impacts, and the specialty’s rocket growth trajectory, the work isn’t done, industry leaders say. Hospitalists are not just working toward a more valuable delivery of care, they’re also increasingly viewed as leaders of projects all around the hospital because, well, they are always there, according to Dr. Gandhi. “Hospitalists really are a leader in the hospital around quality and safety issues because they are there on the wards all the time,” she says. “They really have an interest in being the physician champions around various initiatives, so [in my hospital tenures] I partnered with many of my hospitalist colleagues on ways to improve care, such as test-result management, medication reconciliation, and similar efforts. We often would establish multidisciplinary committees to work on things, and almost always there was a hospitalist who was chairing or co-chairing or participating very actively in that group.”

    1. I’ve definitely learned, through being a part of Girls Who Code and through having multiple jobs in tech companies, how to present myself and how to interview well and how to best represent myself.
    2. Related was the challenge of trying to assert ourselves as two very capable females in tech who wanted to organize a hackathon. When we reached out to potential sponsors our capacity was overshadowed by the fact that we were high school students — they assumed we didn’t know what we were doing.

      Caitlin and Emily were exemplary in their confidence and tenacity. I was beyond impressed when they first reached out to Hive for support for their event. They were professional and easy to work with, and it made us want to support them even more.

    3. The reason I created def hacks() with my friend, Emily Redler, was because we wanted to create a hackathon environment that was specifically receptive to high-school students, because typically this group is overlooked when it comes to hackathons — college students are more welcome because they have more experience and they’re a little bit older. We wanted to target high school students because — at the time — we were high school students. Also this group is important because they are younger, which gives them more flexibility to learn.

    1. The Clavier experience had ignited a spark which fed an intellectual curiosity. Central to this was a realisation of my own agency in progressing educational opportunity for all. I decided to be an open educational practitioner and again my network - an international collection of educators in many different contexts - were reliable in getting involved

    1. Language teaching has been my career since I left university, I completed my Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) back in the 1980s at Warwick and I had worked for 15 years in secondary education rising to a leadership role before joining the Language Centre as a part-time tutor when my children were still young

    1. which the legislature require the development: those for example which are to form the statesmen, legislators & judges, on whom public prosperity, & individual happiness are so much to depend.

      This passage, while subtle, seems to accurately sum up the authors' primary motivation in writing this document and in establishing the ideal public institution of higher learning. The authors intended to teach the UVA student the principles of independence and the virtues of knowledge and morality that they may go forth to be contributing leaders in society. In other words, it seems as though every direction the authors make in the document is addressing how to best form these leaders during their time at the University. UVA demonstrates remains very dedicated today to developing these leaders "on whom...individual happiness [is] so much to depend." One example of this is the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy that was founded in 2007 to instruct the University's students in the skills needed to lead in local, national, and global communities alike.

    1. This paper proposes a shift away from hierarchical policy-driven systems toward networks of strong, responsive schools, with educators collaborating continuously and sharing knowledge both horizontally and vertically. In these transformed systems, leaders at the top empower leadership at all levels, resulting in schools and classrooms that are holistic and adaptive.

      This requires a different kind of leadership. Not everything will work, and leaders need to be comfortable with (authentically) learning from failure. Not accepting failure, but also not punishing failure. We always want our students to learn from failure, but I don't think we allow ourselves to take risks necessary to be truly transformative.

    2. Change is inevitable: transformation is possible.

      I love this quote... potential from inevitability

    1. The best mode of government for youth in large collections, is certainly a desideratum not yet attained with us.

      I find it interesting how the author of the report discusses the idea of self-governance, yet specifically among students. However, the University had not yet been able to attain it. It is also interesting how the report does not elaborate on the idea of the students self-governing themselves, yet the University has taken the idea very seriously. Today, student self-governance is a major facet of the foundation and community at the University, due to the variety of benefits it provides for the school. The idea of self-governance develops character and teaches valuable leadership skills, as well as great group dynamics. -Komal Kamdar, Morgan Negron, and Lyudmila Avagyan

    1. Team members have a clear understanding of where they can best serve the team’s needs, and everyone is highly motivated to get to the same goal.

      Importance of leadership. This is where good leaders shine - always have their eye on the prize, and can communicate that eye on the prize to team members..

    2. The key value to emphasize in the team is positive intent. This is to say that, even when things aren’t going smoothly, each person should assume that their “challenger” is coming from a good place and is trying to act in the best interest of the team.

      Assume good and no ill will. Don't take conflicts personally.

    3. Fair warning to team members (and leaders) who don’t like conflict — things will get awkward. But if teams can’t identify the issues, communicate constructively, and work to resolve them, they will get stuck at this stage.

      Expect conflict. Respectful conflict is healthy and should be encouraged.

    4. The other part is building emotional connections.

      Start with small talk, then move to productivity

    5. What everyone needs most is a clear understanding of their part in the journey.

      What leaders need to do in the forming stage - work with the team to develop clear goals, expectations & roles

    6. Part of this is leading them to realize that their new team members are bringing skills to the table that help everyone to succeed in a way they couldn’t do by themselves. Setting goals together puts these skills and interests into the open.

      Delicate balance as leaders often have something that they need to get done, but there needs to be room for team members to individually contribute here in order to achieve buy-in.

    1. Massanello

      Masaniello (an abbreviation of Tomasso Aniello) led a revolt against Spain in 1647. Born and raised in Naples, Masaniello was a fisherman and fishmonger. In the 1640s, Spain, which ruled Naples, imposed a series of heavy taxes in order to help fund its wars elsewhere. The Neapolitans revolted on July 7, 1647, and Masaniello, a well-known man, attempted to discipline the mob. Eventually, he became the rebel leader, negotiated terms with the Spanish, and became "captain-general of the Neapolitan people." However, he began to act erratically, and by July 17, 1647, he had been assassinated.

    1. Yet I have to ask: are they (including Mike Wesch, Cathy Davidson, and Randy Bass) enough outside to pull the center to the margin?

      Are these individuals enough to pull the centre to the margin?

      Alone clearly not - there has to be a movement in which suddenly leaders appear - one could say the same about Gandhi, Churchill, Hitler, Trump, Beyoncé, et al

      At a key moment they become iconic

    1. Groups of people, groups of programmers especially have conflict. As the team lead, your job in an agile team is more of a referee or catalyst than in waterfall. When the team has conflict about what design to use for example, you'll make sure that people have equal say and stick to arguing over merits. And you end up being the arbiter to which proposed solution the team will go with when the path is not clear.

    1. According to their model, our feelings affect behavior along a continuum between, on one end, something they term “generativeness” (that is, how likely you are to explore something that may end up having a good result, if doing so involves risk) and, on the other, “defensiveness” (when you are focussed on avoiding negative outcomes, forgoing opportunities in the process). It’s a concept akin to what the Columbia University psychologist Tory Higgins calls promotion and prevention—that is, the decision to work toward something or to direct your energy toward avoiding something else. When we are constantly monitoring our behavior, we tend to be on guard and act defensively. We tend to prevent rather than to promote.

    1. Technology leadership is not defined by patents, which history has repeatedly shown to be small protection indeed against a determined competitor, but rather by the ability of a company to attract and motivate the world’s most talented engineers. We believe that applying the open source philosophy to our patents will strengthen rather than diminish Tesla’s position in this regard.

      "Technology leadership is....defined by...the ability of a company to attract and motivate the world's most talented engineers."

      The key components of this applied "open source philosophy" seem to be about increasing input, visibility, and collective motivation by taking fear out of the interaction equation.
