The Call of Leadership Original post: Sun 11/6/2016 at 11:47 PM

One of the points made in this article is that leaders should be roles models. This really stood out to me because it is very relate-able to my future profession of teaching. Teachers are constantly being watched by the community and especially their students. They have to act in a professional way whenever they present themselves out in public. Leaders need to lead by example and model the behavior they expect out of their followers. One of the least effective ways to lead is the "do as I say, not as I do" mentality. If you model a certain behavior, how can you expect your followers to exhibit a different behavior. People in leadership positions need to remember that their actions are observed by their followers and to be careful in how they portray themselves.

I agree with your points. My favorite that you point out is "do as i say, not as I do", I feel like that is a condescending comment like you pointed out in your comment. Especially has a future teacher, you have a certain expectations to uphold in this profession, so understanding early the type of attitude you will need will benefit you extremely well.

I agree that in order to be a good leader you need to learn from some good role models who you see and learn some of your techniques and good learnings.

I agree. As a future teacher it is important to be a good role model and to be someone not only your students look up to, but also someone the parents and staff at your school respect as well.
