In a society that objectifies most human relationships this is a tall order. Each of us must take responsibility in our every encounter. One place for administrators to begin is in interactions with faculty. Do you view the teachers on staff as a means to an end, or do you engage with them - fully?

I highly recommend the work of Marshall Rosenberg and his Nonviolent communication. His "method," which when practiced becomes an internalized presence/consciousness, recognizes the difference between using a person as a strategy or being present to their needs.

As we move more toward electronic relationships (I'd prefer to call them encounters) how do we maintain presence, connection, with each other? Is technology adding to the objectification of humans.

Time to revisit Buber!
