Two Fast Ways To Show Your Company That You Have Great Leadership Skills (Even If You Don’t Have A Leadership Title)

Every year, surveys of CEOs find that chief executives are deeply concerned about having a deep enough pool of talented leaders. And while that sounds bad, it actually represents a great opportunity for anyone who can demonstrate that they do, in fact, have the requisite leadership chops. 

The challenge, of course, is how to demonstrate one’s leadership acumen. If you’ve got profit-and-loss responsibility and you oversee the performance management systems in your area, it’s pretty straightforward to demonstrate leadership (i.e., make money and develop lots of high performers).

Tyson K-12 Awards $25,000 in Grant Funds to Seven School Foodservice Teams through its Great Grant Giveaway

Tyson K-12 is pleased to announce seven K-12 school foodservice teams were awarded a piece of $25,000 in grant funding through the company’s Great Grant Giveaway program. Since its inception in 2015, Tyson K-12 has awarded more than $100,000 in grant funding to schools.

Grant recipients can use the funds to purchase equipment or materials that can help enhance their foodservice operations. Diane Drooger of David Douglas School in Oregon said their $2,500 grant funds will likely be used to purchase additional bakers’ racks to support to-go meals for students.

“Earlier this month, we realized we would need tall bakers’ racks for our kitchen since our school district will be doing online learning through December, possibly longer. We will have meal pick-up areas for families at our schools, in addition to bus stops – the additional racks will really help our staff,” said Drooger.

$5,000 Great Grant Giveaway recipients include:

Great education can bring together online and off-line experiences

Online education is not merely a temporary adaptation to the contingencies of a pandemic-wracked world. After navigating an involuntary crash course in online learning, educational institutions are now recognizing that they will eventually deploy these strategies alongside off-line experiences in the post-COVID future.

They are finding that these two modalities are complementary: each one fills gaps for the other. Thus, the coronavirus holds the promise of elevating the impact of educational institutions in the future.

This was particularly complicated for us since we design dynamic and experimental educational experiences that rely heavily on firsthand encounters with Israel’s people, places and institutions.

While at the start of the crisis, many of us rushed to provide alternative programming, we quickly recognized the importance of strategic pauses
