Act on shared values

You don't have to be positive all the time. It's perfectly okay to feel sad, angry, annoyed, frustrated, scared or anxious.

1. Paving the Path to Integrity, Peace and Happiness | Dr. Bashir Jiwani, PhD | TEDxChilliwack

TEDx Talks

Gepubliceerd op 19 apr. 2017

We face choices daily—as individuals and communities. Both consciously and instinctively, there are things we believe and care about in these choices. Integrity happens when our commitments and actions match. When this happens, we feel good. When it doesn’t, we feel pain. Pursuing integrity as life unfolds requires being able to understand the world, analyze what should matter and make choices that match: skills of critical thinking. As limited, fallible creatures, effective critical thinking requires the ability to collaborate: skills of pluralism. The path to integrity, to peace and happiness, for us and our children alike, requires building these skills.

3. The Darkside of Integrity | Trudi West | TEDxHultLondon

Gepubliceerd op 31 mei 2018

 
As leaders – how does working with integrity lead to hypocrisy? Trudi West discusses her research, showing that despite strong beliefs and values, we can act in ways that look or feel hypocritical when working under pressure. From her own personal inquiry and experience of working with leaders, Trudi shares how we judge others, justify ourselves and more painfully – judge ourselves. Her findings have important implications for leaders who want to work and develop with integrity, especially when under pressure. Trudi has a keen interest in how we are motivated, particularly what drives thinking, feeling and action at an individual, group and organisational level. Her research has explored working with integrity under pressure, as well as the leadership and team outcomes of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. Further, she has explored the concept of working with risk from a broad range of leadership experience. She has an MSc in Organisational Change as well as an MSc in Occupational Psychology.

4. Legal vs. Ethical Liability: A Crisis of Leadership and Culture | Mel Fugate | TEDxSMU

Gepubliceerd op 23 apr. 2015

Professor Fugate argues that leaders at all levels and across industries need to focus on ethical liability above and beyond legal liabilities for themselves and their organizations. Ethical liability tests the true character of a leader and determines the character and quality of an organization’s culture. He illustrates this point in the context of higher education, where he contends a lack of accountability has led to a crisis of leadership and culture. Fugate uses scandals in college sports as common examples of a pervasive and larger problem of university leadership (at all levels) that fails to meet its ethical liabilities. He outlines a number of potential causes for the patterns of unethical behavior in higher education and also provides a few suggestions on how to overcome the challenges of this crisis.

Mel Fugate is an associate professor of Management and Organizations in the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University. His research and consulting aim to enhance individual and organizational performance by utilizing a variety of practical, research-based tools related to leadership development, organizational change, performance management, organizational culture, and employee engagement. His research and consulting span many industries (e.g., legal, energy, healthcare, information technology, and financial services) and often involve organizational assessments intended to measure the human resource health of organizations. He has published in and reviewed for a number of premier management and applied psychology journals and is a coauthor of a new book—“Organizational Behavior: A Practical, Problem Solving Approach.” Professor Fugate is an award-winning teacher who has taught in both the United States and France.

7. Perception is the Root of All Evil | Deji Akingbade | TEDxMHK

Gepubliceerd op 20 jun. 2017
Throughout history, many philosophers have given us schools of thought or various ways to understand the world we live in. Just as Plato sparks the question “What is Justice” in “Republic”, Deji Akingbade possess his own questions about our existential crisis with his philosophy “Be the Verb – Not the Noun.

According to Deji’s philosophy on Nouns and Verbs, each man or woman must be charged to express his work, beliefs, goals, passions, dreams and aspirations in a manner that cannot be defined by a Noun. Fundamentally, there is no such thing as a complete truth when every Noun and its narrow minded definitions are open to question.

Deji also challenges the conventional idea to “Think outside the Box”. The true nature of any innovation is to “create new boxes” to think outside of. Hence the solution to mankind’s existential crisis begins with one question – What is wisdom?

Deji Akingbade writes for lifehack.org. His articles on Work, Leadership and Communication have received over 25,000 shares.

9. Aligning integrity with identity: Lester Tanaka at TEDxCalicoCanyon

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Lester Tanaka is living his passion of empowering people to say “Yes” to the highest possibility for their lives. After completing an A.S. in electronics engineering technology at Honolulu Community College (HCC), Lester realized it was the field of human potential that most excited him. He pursued his education at the University of Hawaii Manoa (UHM) earning his B.S. in Human Development and later returned to complete a M.Ed. in Counseling and Guidance. After moving to Las Vegas he continued his studies taking doctoral classes in Education Psychology at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) with an emphasis in self efficacy in creativity.

In addition to his formal education, Lester taught English as a Second Language (ESL) in Osaka and Matsuyama, Japan while studying Japanese. After his two-year contract expired he travelled for the next sixteen months on a bicycle through Asia, Europe and North America. During the winter of his travels he secured a long-term volunteer position at the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) near Machynlleth, Wales, where he served as an organic farmer and carpenter for nine months.

Lester’s curiosity has contributed to his effectiveness as a career counselor and mentor. He explored nine majors as an undergraduate student and has worked in six career fields: hospitality, recreation, construction, retail management, counseling and teaching. He expresses his creative spirit through sculpting stone and clay, making pottery, sketching, landscape design and home renovation. His giving nature is exemplified through countless hours working with youth groups and young adults in faith-based and community organizations.

Currently, Professor Tanaka teaches the College Success course at the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) and serves on a select number of departmental and college-wide committees. Starting at CSN as an adjunct instructor, he joined the college full-time in 1992 to oversee Tutorial Services in the Developmental Lab, and later co-developed the International Student Program, and served as a college counselor before coming home to teaching full-time.

Lester believes that each of us must take a proactive role in our own learning while acknowledging the inadequacies of the current model of education. He states, “To be truly effective we, as educators, must be willing to acknowledge emerging paradigms of instruction and learning while holding learners to the highest of standards.” Lester has been described as an “out-of-the-box” thinker, willing to take risks, while never losing sight of the big picture.

He emphasizes that we all have our own answers, and we discover them though fearless self- examination and deep listening. Connecting with students in an authentic way in order to support them in living their most meaningful and fulfilling lives is the highest calling of this educator.

14 Justice: From Aristotle to Rawls

Gepubliceerd op 16 mrt. 2018

 
Philosopher Martha Nussbaum observes that, at first glance, it’s difficult to find similarities between the views of justice expressed by Aristotle and John Rawls. Aristotle’s perspective is based on what’s good, while Rawls looks at what’s procedurally fair. But upon further examination, Professor Nussbaum states, there’s a tremendous amount of convergence between the two approaches.
