Learning for Sustainability External website [view] [more info]

The Learning For Sustainability website has been substantially revised and updated over the past few months. This site focuses on sustainability issues, and provides an online guide for government agency staff, NGOs and other agency or organizational leaders working to support multi-stakeholder learning processes. Here this support is used to refer to building the capacity of those many individuals in agencies, organizations and communities that directly or indirectly take the lead in initiating and supporting the many social process strands that support a learning society. The site provides links to key information sources on each strand - include networking, dialogue, adaptive management, knowledge management and evaluation. A short introduction to each section outlines the nature of the resource links provided, and provides pointers to other topic areas which are closely related in use. Other pages provide links to guides, manuals and checklists that address issues such as participation and engagement. A new section points to resources on underpinning social research methods including systems thinking, interdisciplinary and action research. One page lists on-line resources for both post-graduate research students and their supervisors. Topics include thinking about the supervisory team, as well as tips for structuring and writing a thesis or dissertation.

Emotional Intelligence and Leadership Excellence External website [view] [more info]

A study was conducted on three hundred and fifty-eight Managers across the Johnson & Johnson Consumer & Personal Care Group (JJC&PC Group) globally to assess if there are specific leadership competencies that distinguish high performers from average performers. Participants were randomly selected, then coded for performance rating, potential code, gender, functional group and regional area. More than fourteen hundred employees took part in a one hundred and eighty three question multi-rater survey that measured a variety of competencies associated with leadership performance including those commonly referred to as Emotional Intelligence. Results showed that the highest performing managers have significantly more "emotional competence" than other managers. There was strong inter-rater agreement among Supervisors, Peers, and Subordinates that the competencies of Self-Confidence, Achievement Orientation, Initiative, Leadership, Influence and Change Catalyst differentiate superior performers. The high potential managers received higher scores in the emotional competencies by Peers and Supervisors, but not by Subordinates. Some gender difference was found, with Supervisors rating Females higher in Adaptability and Service Orientation, while Peers rated Females higher on Emotional Self-Awareness, Conscientiousness, Developing Others, Service Orientation, and Communication. Direct reports scored Males higher in Change Catalyst.
