Exhibitions: A Platform to learn

'Exhibition' in schools is a term which is mostly related to student and school. Many schools these days conduct different types of exhibitions related to subjects and non-subjects since it gives the students a chance to apply and learn the practical aspect of the things.

The Mann School also provides its students a platform of exhibitions to showcase and implement the things the students have learned and also to apply their ideas and present things differently in their own unique way. The exhibition includes the models in Science, Art and Craft, Social Science, Mathematics and IT. To make these models, the students use the best of their creativity in the best possible way.

The exhibition held in the Mann School makes the students confident enough to speak about their model. Moreover, a healthy bond is shared between the teachers and the students as both of them spend a long time in discussion and preparation of the projects and they get to know about each other’s qualities, intellectual level and areas of interest. The students are seen extremely delighted and enthusiastic during the preparation as participants are keen to show their content and the non-participants are willing to know about various subjects. Students develop the skills of leadership, and relate how to work in groups through such events by cooperating each other.

In the school we, the teachers, are prepare students to lead their lives in various ways whether it is personal life, social life or professional life. In todays world, where competition is at its peak, it is important for a student to learn this skill as well.

Though certain people may seem to have that zeal that inspires others to follow their lead, the ingredients of true leadership aren’t really a mystery. Many people have researched and studied the qualities that leaders possess, and they have observed many common factor among leaders.

If your students are aspiring to take on a management or leadership role in an institution or organization, or if they simply wish to have more influence in their circles of friends and classmates, encourage them to begin building the characteristics of a leader right now.

Here’s a quick summary of the traits of a leader :
  • Self confidence: A leader who is self-assured, without being bombastic or overbearing, instills self-confidence in team members”. Your self-confidence and calm demeanor can help others feel more certain that they, too, can overcome hurdles and achieve a challenging goal.
  • Humility: When you’re willing to share credit with others, and also willing to admit that you’re not perfect, others see that and appreciate it and are more likely to follow you.
  • Core self-evaluations: Research shows that four related self-perceptions relate to effective leadership: “self-esteem, locus of control [that is, taking responsibility for what happens in your life], self-efficacy, and emotional stability”.
  • Trustworthiness: People trust you when your attitudes, words, and motives align with what you actually choose to do. This includes being honest about mistakes, refusing to gossip and shift blame, and doing things the ethical way .
  • Authenticity: Be yourself, and act in line with your core values and personality. People will notice if you’re trying to be someone other than who you really are.
  • Extroversion: Most leaders maintain an outgoing demeanor, show an interest in people, and gladly participate in group or team activities.
  • Assertiveness: Be up front about your needs, concerns, and opinions. However, don’t forget to be tactful!
  • Enthusiasm, optimism, and warmth: Staying positive, being approachable, and expressing positive thoughts and feelings through both verbal and nonverbal communication help you build rapport with those around you.
  • Sense of humor: Your ability to make people laugh can help others feel comfortable and relieve tense situations. 
  • Passion: Leaders show an extremely strong commitment to and enthusiasm about their work.
  • Emotional intelligence: A solid leader exhibits empathy towards others, has a good understanding of emotions of both others’ and their own – and recognizes that their own mood can have an effect on the entire organization’s performance. 
  • Flexibility and adaptability: A leader can bring about change… so it follows that he or she must also be ready and willing to adjust to different settings and situations.
  • Courage: Willingness to take risks on new ideas may put you “out there” for criticism and blame… but it also carries the reward of bringing new ideas to fruition. 
Through awareness of what it takes to be a leader, you can begin building habits that lead to increased effectiveness in the task in hand.
