How do I become a leader?

Have you ever had a teacher ask you...

"Make me a leader"

In response to this you may reply with "What do you mean... what are you lacking?"

Often their reply would be that they feel they lack authority and would like to be able to tell others what to do. However when the teacher is then challenged to list all the times that the Headteacher or SLT has directly told them what to do... when they feel they have been ordered around... often they cannot think of many examples at all.

It would be a painful day to day experience of leaders relied on their authority to work with staff.

Which brings us back to the original question

"So what do I need to do to become a leader, then ?"
