Front of the Class
Sixth grade teacher Tamara Davis remembers little Bobby Ward as a natural leader hiding in the back of the class. So when the grown-up Robert Ward calls 12 years later asking for advice about his new job as supervisor, she is more than happy to give him a refresher course on leadership.
There are two principles that all true leaders use as their guides. One is you only succeed when they do. A good supervisor must constantly ask,What do they need from me to succeed? The answer to this question is the second principle, and the backbone of The Front of the Class: Be first, be fair, be firm and be flexible.
Hilarious recollections of best and worst teachers, the moving story of a classroom hero, everyone's favorite homework excuses, and flashbacks to the teacher's pet all figure into a memorable lesson on the qualities of a true leader. This is a film with wisdom, warmth and a sense of humor for supervisors.
Participants will learn about:
-Being First: set the mood, set the pace and set the standards:
-Being Fair: don't play favorites, share the credit, and take the heat:
-Being Firm: state the facts, get agreement on the problem, and explore a solution:
-Being Flexible: assume the best of people, make room for good ideas, and admit when you're wrong.
