From the Paper:"In leadership frameworks as well as in education in order for something to be teachable it must be understood. As a leader it is important to be able to communicate effectively, that means that you must be able to transfer your point of view to another so that it is understood completely. As a leader in education or in any filed you must teach and not preach. You have to tell a story or you have to find common touch points with the listener by always asking questions and remaining open-minded. One must also to lead by example and not just by authority. Telling someone to do something and showing them how to perform the task are can be very different approaches to the same situation. The first is controlling and the latter is usually empowering.
