A GOOD leader is considered a good networker, mediator and problem solver that suggests solutions and ways to get things done, Education Ministry acting permanent secretary Basundra Kumar told the Future Leader's Workshop in Suva yesterday.

More than 30 primary and secondary school teachers from around the Central Division were part of the week-long workshop held at St Joseph's Secondary School this week.

Mrs Kumar said a leader was one that was visionary, sees creative solutions, new directions and possibilities in his or her line of work every day.

She said one of the qualities of being a good leader was being a coach that encouraged others to develop their skills.

"This training workshop should empower leaders to effectively and efficiently carry out their roles as they are agent of change in their schools," Mrs Kumar said.

"The training is part of our human resource development plan, which has been around for more than 50 years.

"The workshop is very important as we are trying to equip our young teachers with a quality of being a good school leader.

"These teachers are given resource materials and guest speakers to help them understand their roles as leaders."

She said the workshop would be an ongoing event for the ministry to provide a holistic and empowering training program for teachers.
