- Detail Description
★★ NAMED A “BEST LEADERSHIP BOOK OF 2020” BY LEADERSHIP NOW ★★
” The best teachers are leaders, and the best leaders are teachers.”
In this book, Thomas DeLong, a Harvard Business School professor, shares his personal experiences and insights into the art of teaching and mentorship.
Teaching by Heart summarizes the author’s key insights gained from more than forty years of teaching and managing. It illustrates how teachers can both lift people up and let them down. It proposes that the best teachers are also leaders, and the best leaders are also teachers.
The book is a reflection on DeLong’s career as an educator and his commitment to inspiring and motivating his students. He discusses his journey as a teacher, the challenges he faced, the successes he achieved, and the lessons he learned along the way. DeLong emphasizes the importance of connecting with students on a personal level, fostering a supportive and inclusive learning environment, and using real-life experiences to bring academic subjects to life.
In examining how to lead and teach, renowned Harvard Business School professor Thomas J. DeLong takes the reader inside his own head and heart. He notes that, as teachers, we often focus more on our inadequacies and missteps than on our strengths and unique talents. He explains why this is so by dissecting and analyzing his own experiences–using himself as a case study.
The book’s goal is to help readers learn about the intricacies of teaching and managing, and to impart lessons about how teachers can create a unique teaching atmosphere. To do this, the author analyzes the process of creating a curriculum, preparing for an eighty-minute class, managing the fifteen minutes before class begins, and evaluating the nature of the teaching experience after the session concludes.
Along the way, he connects specific classroom behaviors with leadership issues–in organizations, in teams, and in personal relationships. He also asks–and answers–some provocative questions, such as:
● What happens on multiple levels when I teach or lead–with me, students, or professionals?
● What am I thinking and feeling as I process what students are thinking and feeling?
● How are my internal conversations affecting how I teach and lead?
● How do I manage my biases, including having “favorite” students?
● To what extent can I use teaching methods in the arena of management?
Throughout Teaching by Heart, DeLong discusses why empathy and authenticity matter. When teachers embrace this mindset, students have the opportunity to have a unique learning experience. Teachers and managers will learn how to create moments of transformation for students.
In examining how to lead and teach, DeLong takes the reader inside his own head and heart. He notes that, as teachers, we often focus more on our inadequacies and missteps than on our strengths and unique talents. The book offers practical advice on how to create a unique teaching atmosphere and how to manage biases, including having “favorite” students.
“Teaching by Heart” is not only a book about teaching in the academic sense but also about mentorship, leadership, and the broader role of educators in shaping the lives of their students. It provides valuable insights for both educators and those interested in the art of teaching and inspiring others.
This book is a combination of personal anecdotes and practical advice for educators and mentors looking to make a positive impact in the lives of their students and help them achieve their full potential. It highlights the profound influence that a dedicated and caring teacher can have on their students’ personal and professional development.
Whether you’re a university professor, a student, a business leader, or just someone fascinated by teaching, this book will instruct, entertain, and–hopefully–inspire. In other words it is a memoir and an instruction manual, a how-to guide for great teaching, and a testament to the unparalleled joy that both teaching and learning can bring. “Teaching By Heart ” is a must-read for anyone facing leadership challenges and is interested in enhancing their organization.
