MARY LOU S. SAN­TOS

Be­ing hu­man is easy but to act as hu­man we need to con­sider our re­la­tions to the peo­ple around us. To have a good hu­man re­la­tion they are fac­tors that we need to con­sider it in­cludes lead­er­ship; com­mu­ni­ca­tion; team build­ing; and ne­go­ti­a­tion, fa­cil­i­ta­tion and me­di­a­tion abil­i­ties. The con­cept of hu­man re­la­tion is gen­er­ally de­fined as the ca­pac­ity to in­ter­act and work well with other peo­ple. It looks at so­cial dy­nam­ics at both the in­di­vid­ual and group in or­der to work ef­fec­tively and the same time no stress. There sev­eral prob­lems and chal­lenges when it comes to con­flicts with our co- work­ers, stu­dents, head teach­ers par­ents and the peo­ple in the com­mu­nity so as a teacher we should pos­sess self-es­teem, have a mu­tual re­spect, com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and a good mo­ti­va­tor be­cause of these char­ac­ter­is­tics may lead to neg­a­tive sit­u­a­tions.

A teacher must have a lead­er­ship skill and hu­man re­la­tion goes side by side, you can­not choose be­tween them, and you have to choose them al­to­gether. Ed­u­ca­tional lead­er­ship de­pends on hu­man re­la­tion, it all about re­la­tion­ship at ev­ery level, re­la­tion­ship with teach­ing staff, ad­min­is­tra­tive staff and stu­dents. With­out good re­la­tion with teacher it is im­pos­si­ble for a leader to achieve good aca­demic re­sult. With­out the help ad­min­is­tra­tive staff and teach­ers it is al­most im­pos­si­ble to run a school in proper or­der, teach­ers are the soul of a school and with­out the help of them the school would be chaos. There­fore good re­la­tions be­tween leader and his school teach­ers are very im­por­tant for the im­prove­ment of school and the to­tal per­for­mance of teacher s.

Teacher stu­dent re­la­tion­ship is also very im­por­tant. A good re­la­tion be­tween them will lead the school to bet­ter per­for­mance and aca­demic achieve­ments, which will be suc­cess on the part of teacher-leader, there­fore it is their re­spon­si­bil­ity to pro­vide them bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment where teacher and stu­dents could bet­ter re­la­tion­ship.
