On the life path, people play various roles in different situations, becoming either leaders or subordinates. In particular, I felt this distribution of roles during my school years. Even though this cannot be called full-fledged work, school is one of the most influential organizations in human life. I would like to note that moral values were quite developed in my school. Teachers tried to communicate with students politely and convey to them not only educational material but also ethical knowledge. They always had an attentive attitude towards their students, and they had time for everyone. One of the striking examples of this attitude I met before the final exams was when the English teacher agreed to study with me several times after school without any compensation. Thus, she showed how important it is to develop my intellect and give me some attention from an authoritative person.
One way to convey these values and attitudes in my school is through its charter. I know that this is not done everywhere, but the teachers let each of us get acquainted with it and monitor its implementation. In addition, if conflict situations occurred during the lessons, the teachers not only tried to stop them but sometimes discussed what had happened with everyone. Thanks to this, students could draw moral conclusions for themselves.
Despite all the advantages, there are some shortcomings that I would correct if I were in the position of authority in this organization. For instance, I would revise the system of motivating students for good academic performance, allowing them to study in other cities and countries. Travelling is one of the most effective ways of motivation in any company (Wine & Pritchard, 2018). I would also pay more attention to hiring teachers, as some of them disdained the school’s values and were quite inattentive to the students. I think that this way I would be able to raise even more successful students who, in the future, would apply these values in the workplace, becoming good employees and leaders.
