Great Education Leaders are Humble
People in our world appear to be obsessed with bragging about how fantastic they are. Everyone wants glory, no matter who they have to harm. For educational leaders, humility is the best way to progress. You may be intelligent and talented, but don’t flaunt it; instead, let your actions speak for themselves. Nothing irritates me more than someone who is always screaming their praises. It gives the impression that they are self-absorbed and only interested in themselves.
A Little Humility Goes a Long Way
As an educator, being egotistical or selfish might have severe implications. It can make you lose sight of what’s essential, causing you to make favorable judgments for yourself rather than the team. Remember that teachers should base their decisions on how they will impact students, not adults.
If you didn’t go into education to assist students in reaching their full potential, you’re in the wrong field. If you want to be the focus of attention, you should have chosen a career as a fighter, novelist, or someone else who does not require teamwork.
Regrettably, many educators have not received the message. They appear to be more interested in making themselves presentable than in leading. Being egotistical will not help you become successful in the realm of education. People will become bored of your inflated ego and despise spending time with you. You’re probably not even aware of it because you’re focused on yourself 24 hours a day.
Favor yourself, be generous, and remember that being a leader in education is a privilege, not a chance to become the next social media sensation or fatten your pockets. It’s all about serving humankind and assisting the young generation in attaining their full potential as educators.
