All Teachers Are Leaders but Not All Leaders Are Teachers

with Alvin Teoh

Leaders are often described as visionaries, inspirational, and courageous. While those are important qualities for leaders to possess, another quality tends to be overlooked. The ability to transfer knowledge as a leader not only benefits the learner, but the teacher as well. That’s why leaders also have to be good teachers.

It is an active decision that they make as part of they daily work routine.
