Personal Leadership


Being an effective teacher or academic demands a high level of skill in several areas. We will explore the multiple roles that all teachers need to fulfil. Having confidence to fill all these roles requires personal awareness and confidence. Or put another way: “One can only give to others when one’s own sense of identity is secure”.

Understanding oneself is central to effectively working with others. Theories about human personality will be examined and used to assist in the critique of well-known principles of good teaching. Participants will have the opportunity to examine their own personal strengths and challenges and make decisions on areas for change.


  • Describe in detail the multiple roles involved in teaching
  • Be more aware of the diversity between teachers in terms of personality attributes
  • Critique principles of good teaching in light of the diversity between teachers
  • Examine their own personal strengths and challenges and make some decisions about options for change
