Gary Wandschneider knows the qualities and traits that make a great leader. In his presentation, A View from the Front Row, he discussed some of the most vital concepts on how to become an effective leader in various industries.
One of the fields in which excellent leadership is exhibited is the field of education. Teachers are considered by many as leaders, due to their ability to share ideas, and guide and influence students in becoming future professionals.
“Your role as a leader is even more important than you might imagine. You have the power to help people become winners.” Ken Blanchard, American author and management expert, once said.
What make teachers successful in leading people, Gary Wandschneider says, is their credibility in selling their ideas and inspiring confidence.
One of the greatest educators in history is Confucius, a Chinese teacher and philosopher who preached the values of formal learning. For years, he taught thousands of students in different fields including music, archery, mathematics, ritual, chariot riding, and calligraphy, emphasizing morals and integrity in his lessons. Many consider him as a great influence in shaping Chinese education and his philosophy is seen as an influential factor in shaping the minds of people throughout the world.
