Does servant leadership work in organizations?

Servant leadership is the idea of serving others out of love instead of ego and expecting nothing in return. Is this an effective leadership style? I'd like to think so. Does this work in management? #business #psychology #management #marketing #sociology

Is metacognition and right brain learning starting to revolutionize the way we think about learning and how we teach kids in school?

Sometimes I wonder if schools tend to favor left-brain dominant children. I think through images, I like theories, I'm intuitive, and I have no sense of time. (But I'm time sensitive). #psychology #education #higher-education

How can the idea of agency help me when making career decisions?

Agency is the ability to make choices in the world. People are called into different subject positions and once an individual is called into a subject position they lose agency. #psychology #english #sociology
