Teaching provides an opportunity to influence the greatest amount of people. However, Rosabeth Moss Kantor says, “Leaders are more powerful role models when they learn than when they teach.”
When I read the quote it reminded me of the most powerful leaders that live. They are learners first, then teachers.
When students see their teachers passionate about learning and sharing what they learn, it excites everyone involved in the process. What a powerful combination!
If we want to grow in our leadership example and be the kind of role model others can emulate, then exemplify this thought.
