Ask Dr Kirk - Dr Delaney Kirk

Dr Delaney Kirk, professor at Drake University and author of Taking Back the Classroom: Tips for the College Professor on Becoming a More Effective Teacher writes at Ask Dr Kirk.

There are quite a few parallels between managing in business and teaching. Or at least as a former teacher, I believe there are. So while Dr Kirk's blog is focued on teachers helping their students, there is a definite cross over possible for managers to help their associates.

For example: Assignment rubric.
If you had something like this, the performance review would be easier.

Do you find other parallels? If so, you might want to add this site to your RSS Reader of choice.

I absolutely agree with you--in fact, I used to train managers before I became a college professor. Hopefully, what I am teaching my students in class now will help them to be more effective and successful managers. Thanks for the mention.
