4 essential skills every teacher needs

When you’re looking to hire a new teacher for your school, you need to be careful. You can’t just look for people who are qualified for the position. Simply having a teaching qualification doesn’t necessarily mean they are fit to be a good teacher. And, of course, you only want the best for your school.

Are race-based policies helping or hindering us build our nation and economy?

Freedom or Youth Day in South Africa resembles a host of activities around the country where not much happiness are seen among our youth and we need to question ourselves as many of us come out of the oppressive apartheid era.

Why you (probably) haven’t been promoted yet

Big promotions will probably only come by a few times in your life, but when they do, it’s a different kind of accomplishment to finishing college or landing your first job. A promotion is the affirmation that you have been noticed and that someone up there thinks you’re going places.

Unfortunately, being responsible for employee management isn't simple: achieving an objective yourself, and the ability to get a group of people to achieve those same goals, are two very different skills sets. What happens when your team won't move in the same direction or aren't…
