Role of Positive Reinforcement in Developing a Leader

Leadership Instincts

Praising students for leadership behavior is an indirect way to teach them about independent thinking. 

If teachers want to reinforce any type of behavior in the classroom, they need to use positive reinforcement. By focusing on positive feedback instead of negative, students will become more confident in their abilities. As a result, their increased confidence and self-awareness will help them take more initiative on academic and interpersonal tasks in the classroom.

The teacher should help the students believe that they are capable of anything. Encouraging them to go above and beyond whenever possible. The teacher should also set a positive example of this by taking risks in his/her own teaching, stepping outside of his/her comfort zone and letting the students know that the teacher trying something new.

A teacher should never be scared to make mistakes in the classroom.  When students see their teachers making mistakes right in front of them, they come to see the classroom as a safe space where they can make mistakes without judgment. Teachers are responsible for showing students that leaders don’t follow the same path as everyone else. Instead, they forge new ones.
