Dear Reader, Teaching has been a time honored tradition for hundreds of years. Whether you want to pursue a career in teaching or you wish to volunteer your time as a teacher, it is important to learn key techniques which can improve your teaching abilities. Without the right tools and information, it could take you years and cost you a small fortune to discover the secrets to teaching. Instead of spending a fortune on so-called experts or knocking yourself out with the old trial and error method, there is an easier way to be the teacher you have always dreamed of. Now theres good news .... I wont deny that there are a ton of books out there on teaching. Unfortunately the problem with most books on the subject of teaching is that they are either filled with plenty of promises and no solid techniques and strategies to back up those promises or they contain only one or two pieces of useful information and not a comprehensive look at everything you need to know to succeed in teaching. Introducing The Teachers Guide! Teachers Guide breaks the mold of all the other teaching books and manuals you have heard and read about. It presents solid, proven steps to help you learn how to be the teacher youve always wanted. Sounds too good to be true? Its not and I can prove it with Teachers Guide! But, first a word of introduction. My name is Dan. A few years ago I found myself in a situation not too different from your own. Like almost everyone else, I longed to be a better teacher, but I had no idea where to start! None of the books I had read on teaching had been able to solve my problem. Some of them were so mired down in fancy words and technicalities that it was a miracle I ever got past the first chapter! Others might have passed on a helpful hint or two, but did not solve my problems. Thats when it hit me! If I couldnt find a comprehensive guide on teaching, then why not create my own? I was tired of flipping back and forth through tons of books for the few bits of information that could help me; but I reasoned that if I put all those little tidbits of info together then I might actually be able to begin understanding the secrets to teaching. The next morning I furiously began to read through all of the teaching books that I had purchased over the past three years and take down the pertinent notes. I didnt stop there either. I swallowed my pride and enlisted the help of people that I knew who had been personally successful in teaching. It took awhile to sort through all of the information I had gathered and compile the notes I received from the experts I consulted, but when I was finished I sat back and was completely stunned. Right here in front of me was the information that I had been seeking all along! From the notes I had taken from several articles on the subject of teaching, as well as my own experiments, I had comprised a comprehensive compendium on the subject of teaching. I sat back in stunned amazement! It was all there! The Work of the Teacher How to Stimulate Thinking The Importance of Play in Education Classroom Lessons The Importance of Individual Differences How to Cultivate Moral Attitudes Then I decided to try an experiment and put all of my hard work to the test. The next morning I awoke with new determination. This time I would not fail! Suddenly, I was excited! I absolutely could not believe the difference. Suddenly it was all so clear! I could easily implement proven strategies without having to wade through a mountain of fancy words and difficult to understand terms. What happened next was nothing short of amazing! These strategies not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. As my success with teaching grew, I started to feel guilty. I knew there were a lot more people out there who wanted the same solutions I had found. Somehow, it just didnt seem right to keep it to myself. One night as I made some changes to my book, I wondered how many other people might have the same problem? After all, if I couldnt find a decent comprehensive teaching manual, what were the chances anyone else could? Given the tremendous success I had encountered using my manual; I was sure that other people could take the same easy to read and understands strategies and achieve success as well. Right now youre probably thinking, Yeah, right. Theres a ton of teaching books out there. What makes you and your book so different? I wont deny for a minute that there are some good teaching books out there-after all Ive read most of them, if not all of them. The difference, however; is that my book blows all the others out of the water because it doesnt just focus on one area of the game. You get everything you need to understand how to teach successfully. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left out. All the fundamentals are there. And thats just a small taste of what you will get when you order the Teachers Guide Absolutely everything anyone would ever need to learn how to successfully teach is contained within this impressive work. Okay, Im sold, but whats this incredible resource going to cost me? When I first began to think about putting my manual on the market, my first thought was to create a seminar where people could actually get the benefits in a hands-on way. I know not everyone loves to read, so that seemed to be a great solution. But, I quickly realized how time consuming that would be for everyone so instead, I decided I wanted as many people as possible to reap the benefits of this fabulous manual. So, Im willing to slash the cost just so you can take advantage of the incredible information within Teachers Guide.

The Country Club Management: How Your School Fares under a Sanguine Manager

The possibility and otherwise of meeting up with the goals and objectives of any school system as enshrined in its Mission and Vision Statement has more to do with the man at the helm  than it is with the documented policies and guiding principles of the school.

This is because, no matter how noble and promising a school policy statement may appear, its implementation must be carried out by the men and women who form the management team. But the chief driver is that man or woman called The School Head or Administrator (or any other equivalent name). And his/her entire humanity trait and tendencies have a lot to do with the work he/she has been called to do.

Interestingly, in all the various humanity traits that rob on the performance potentials of school heads and administrators, none is as much pronounced as temperamental traits.

You may want to know…

Of what temperament is the man who heads your school?

-         The power-hungry choleric?
-         The popularity-mongering sanguine?
-         The perfection-seeking melancholic?
-         The peace-settling phlegmatic?

In case you don’t understand the theory of temperament in school management system, I may need to produce another extensive work on that.

Read: How Teachers' Temperament affect Their Classroom delivery

Each of the foregoing temperamental traits has its pros and cons of course.

Meanwhile, in this post we are looking at how the charismatic sanguine manager would fare in terms of taking your school to its dream land.

It will be nice to consider the sanguine manager’s potential achievement using the ‘7M School management models’ and see how the man fares under each of them.

I have been privileged to work in so many organizations- schools and other non-school organizations. These 7 areas has always been the reason for the rise or fall of organizational management.

While others wondered what could have triggered the sudden change of fortune with the man at the top; as a temperamental coach, I have always known that it has a lot to do with temperamental tendencies than for any other factor.

So how does the sanguine school head fare under these factors?:

Managerial style

Every school head you have ever met fall into any of these 3 core managerial style:

-         Autocratic manager: The one who drives the rest of the workers mad with his autocratic tendencies. His opinions are final.

-         Democratic manager: The one who listens to others’ opinions before finalizing decision.

-         Laissez faire manager: The one who is a stooge to those under him. He lacks the power of control and rather allows his subordinates to lead the way.

Your sanguine manager is a democrat. He is a team leader. If he works in a right mind, he has what it takes to pull others to achieve organizational goal.

Verdict: He is good to go as a school head.

Maintaining organizational standard

Another area of the school life that matters so much is keeping organizational core standards and policies. So what is your expectation here from your sanguine school head?

Forget it! The man you hired for the job is a spoilt child!

Sanguines are naturally carefree and undisciplined, and that does not change even when they become managers, except if they see this as a threat to their career progress and make concrete effort to work on themselves.

Verdict: Looking for a conventional manager-the one to keep to the age-long standard of the school? Never hire a sanguine for the post!

Managing public relations

Every serious-minded school system would definitely relate with its external environment-the public.

So how does your sanguine manager fare here?

Simply put, Sanguines are experts in this area. With his natural tendency to socialize, the sanguine manager creates a positive image of inter-dependent interaction between the school and the public it serves. In fact, some parents are still patronizing the school just because of him.

Verdict: He is good to go here.

Meeting targets

Do you know organizational goals are achieved only when targets are met within the stipulated time frame?

So how does the man at the driver’s seat fare in this area?

The uncultured nature of the sanguine makes it difficult for him to meet targets. He is easily carried away by frivolities. Meeting targets is what an average sanguine school head can only achieve in one out of one hundred attempts.

Sounds incredible! But it’s a reality!

Verdict: Don’t hire a sanguine as head of school if your primary concern is meeting targets.

Money management

Money is an essential component of every school system. I have not yet seen or heard of schools running as a charitable or not-for-profit making organization. Even the so-called charitable outfits make money one way or the other, and are nonetheless interested in its management.

Is it enough to collect tuition and other fees from school? What happens to the management of the monies collected?

Ask your sanguine school head!

The average sanguine manager is a ‘Country club’ manager. He wants to enjoy himself more than he delivers in his job description; and he transfers that mindset to the entire team. Hence, if you don’t regulate a sanguine school head in terms of financial management, his termly financial report will only show money in the books but none at the bank.

Verdict: If possible, give him every other thing to handle but not money.

Moral integrity

Nothing defines and determines the long term standing of a school system more than the moral integrity or otherwise of its administrative head.

Where there is lack of moral integrity, organizational standards and codes of operation are sacrificed on the altar of ‘my clique complex’, bribery and kickbacks, sexual immoralities- all leading to monumental frauds, cover ups, blackmail, undue favouritism and eventual collapse.

Unfortunately, your man-the sanguine school head scores zero in moral integrity.

Verdict: Except this area does not matter to you; otherwise don’t keep a sanguine for too long in that position.

Managing innovations

In the face of the ever-evolving educational environment, no school remains afloat without innovation. And the man at the helm has a lot to do in terms of coming up with innovations as well as driving it to achieve the core goals of the school.

Does your sanguine school head have what it takes to meet up this obligation?

Coming up with innovations? Yes!

But maintaining it to achieve needed long term result? No!

Verdict: If he must be there, he then needs a continual follow-up until targets are met; otherwise you’ve innovated for the gods!


Sanguines can make good school administrators in spite of their temperamental weaknesses (after all,others have theirs too). But the key issue here is: If you must have a sanguine at the helm of your school management, then you’ve got to put some measures in place that would help cushion the effects of his obvious lapses.

A lot can be achieved in terms of growth as well as meeting the core objectives of any school if efforts are made to get it right when it comes to choosing who leads the line in our administrative processes and practice.

If you don’t still know what to do, hire me as your consultant…
