Abstract

Most corporate owners and leaders are successful teachers (also read as trainers) or coaches, and they take certain steps in their own way to pass along what they have learned to their people or employees. Teachers continue to learn. In this paper, the practitioner-researchers talk about how one can be a good teacher; they are asking questions or raising issues to find out more on how to be a good teacher. The various pointers, among other things, include: being an ever willing teacher, applying different strokes for different folks and giving students carrots and incentives (or giving them something to hold onto) as well as applying a variety of teaching methods.

 

Keywords: Good teacher, analogies, metaphors, pausing, being persuasive, orderliness, S. A. L. T.
