Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

hat does Lead­er­ship means? Peo­ple com­monly think that Lead­ers should al­ways be on top of a pyra­mid. Must be su­pe­rior, ex­ec­u­tive and very knowl­edge­able who should not com­mit er­rors when plan­ning. Ex­tremely smart and con­fi­dent.

How­ever, this must be corrected. Be­cause a leader should not just only con­sider to be on top of a tri­an­gle; hence should know how to step down and look ev­ery an­gle cor­rectly. Check­ing each size of the an­gle equally in­clud­ing the qual­ity is a sign of be­ing a good leader. Be­cause a Leader has a bril­liant heart to­wards their sub­or­di­nates. Car­ing for their ben­e­fits, lov­ing and know­ing their dif­fer­ences as in­di­vid­ual, could help them mo­ti­vate ful­fill their du­ties sig­nif­i­cantly. Same as be­ing the Pres­i­dent of a coun­try. A Head of State and head of the na­tional ex­ec­u­tive who pro­motes the unity of the na­tion which will ad­vance the Re­pub­lic. A Leader of a Na­tion does not se­lect peo­ple to serve with; in­stead he/ she dis­trib­ute job obli­ga­tions to each des­ig­nated of­fi­cials in or­der to di­vide work equally and pro­duce out­put per­fectly for our coun­try.

This obli­ga­tion is al­most sim­i­lar to a ded­i­cated Leader of an In­sti­tu­tion, who put pas­sion in work as we tend to pri­or­i­tize the need of our stu­dents, teach­ers and school. Ef­fi­cient Leader care for fu­ture, mind and be­hav­ior. Help their sub­or­di­nates do the right things. They set direc­tion, build an in­spir­ing vi­sion, and cre­ate some­thing new. A leader will then en­sure that team mem­bers have the nec­es­sary skills and abil­i­ties to do their job and achieve the vi­sion. They do this by giv­ing and re­ceiv­ing feed­back reg­u­larly, and by train­ing and coach­ing peo­ple to im­prove in­di­vid­ual and team per­for­mance.

Yes, I am a mod­ern Leader, be­cause I de­fend for my school, teach­ers and stu­dents. I do not just sim­ply in­struct my teach­ers in hold­ing chalks when teach­ing but use tech­nol­ogy for our dig­i­tal learn­ers. Thus, all teach­ers must be re­minded that be­fore sleep­ing at night, make sure to have a usual habit in pre­par­ing mod­ern teach­ing ma­te­ri­als. Be­cause we are cur­rently leav­ing in a mod­ern way that stu­dents are now ex­pe­ri­enc­ing. --oOo— The au­thor is SST II at Ca­machiles Na­tional High School, Divi­sion of Ma­bal­a­cat City --oOo— The au­thor is Mas­ter Teacher I at San Vi­cente-San Francisco High School Ma­cabebe, Pam­panga
