8 Ways a Teacher Is Like a Leader

8 Ways a Teacher Is Like a Leader | The Principal Coach | Scoop.it

When most people think of a leader, archetypes often include the president of a country, the boss of a company, or a general in the military. But can a teacher be equated to a leader? In my experience as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at a public university in Bolu, Turkey, I have found that many leadership concepts that I learned in college have been germane to my job as a teacher. In fact, I have discovered multiple parallels between being a teacher and being a leader.

Pete Reed's insight:

As always, Patti gets it right! Good leaders, especially school leaders, ARE teachers. Their students shift from being kids to being teachers, parents, community members, and others with bodies larger on average than the kids the continue to serve through an expanded role.

I’ve been a surgeon for eight years. For the past couple of them, my performance in the operating room has reached a plateau. I’d like to think it’s a good thing—I’ve arrived at my professional peak. But mainly it seems as if I’ve just stopped getting better.

Why You Lead Determines How Well You Lead

Why You Lead Determines How Well You Lead | The Principal Coach | Scoop.it

"Internal motivations are more powerful than external ones." Study shows that "those who lead primarily from values-based motivations, which are inherently internal, outperform those who lead with additional instrumental outcomes and rewards."

Pete Reed's insight:

Attitudes -- what one believes, values, and finds purpose in shape one's use of the leadership knowledge, skills, talents, and gifts for the benefit of others.

How Coaching Can Impact Teachers, Principals, and Students

The Art of Coaching: Coaching is an essential component of an effective professional development program. Coaching can build will, skill, knowledge, and capacity because it can go where no other professional development has gone before: into the intellect, behaviors, practices, beliefs, values, and feelings of an educator. Coaching creates a relationship in which a client feels cared for and is therefore able to access and implement new knowledge. A coach can foster conditions in which deep reflection and learning can take place.

Pete Reed's insight:

Coaching is indeed an art and as in most arts requires building skill throug practice, reflection, and feedback from the coach's coach and the person being coached.
