Holy Cross International College (HCIC) Yaounde Teachers Urged To Be Leaders –Peter Ngu Tayong
Teachers of Holy Cross International College, HCIC Yaounde have been urged to be leaders as they go along with the teaching-learning process in the institution.
The call was made by, Peter Ngu Tayong, CEO of Tayong Center for Leadership Development, TCLD during a seminar that grouped together teachers of HCIC on August 25 in Yaounde.
The motivational speaker and coach pointed that for the teachers to be leaders in their classrooms, there must be able to bring love, compassion, and care. There must be those teachers that when they get to class, students will not want them to leave.
Be leaders as you carry on with your work. Nobody is born a leader but you become a leader when you influence change. One thing leaders do is that they bring in love, compassion, and care. For you to become a leader, your character matters. You must be a team player,” he said.
He added, “Character is critical and competence must be there. You must be that type of teacher that when you get to class, students don’t want you to leave. Competence gives credibility and credibility is important in leadership because it helps people and students to trust you.”
“Until you start influencing your students, you will not make it. They are looking up to you and that is why in class, you should be a leader. Values and sound discipline should also be there,” he said.
The Tayong Center for Leadership Development (TCLD), is a One Stop for Leadership Soft Skills and Personal Development training, in Cameroon and Africa, which has been organizing several workshops, training senior executives, mid-managers, and frontline staff, of leading businesses and organizations in Cameroon.
