I am confused and i am looking for help to sort this out
There are quite a few things that you need to learn apart from academics if you want to succeed as a professor in your career. Below are some of those things that will be helpful to you:
Dear Aspirant, you have asked a very good and practical question, let me tell you that, academic is very important for a Professor, but it does not make a professor a complete personality. The academic makes a professor technically eligible to teach and get selected in an organization. But by being academic only , one does not able to transmit information into the mind of students, colleagues and others. Here the role of interpersonal skills comes. This skill is very crucial in any human being and for a person who is involved in teaching or involved in public relation, interperonal skills are a part of business.Let me tell you something about interpersonal skilss, then you will come to know its importance;Interpersonal skills are life skills we use every day to communicate and interect with other people both individually and in groups. People who have worked on developing strong interperonal skills are more succeful in personal and professional life. THe common types of interperonal skills are as;1. Verbal communication skills; what we say and how we say it2. Non verbal communication; here we do not say or we communicate without words, example is our body language 3. Listening skills; How we interpret verbal and non verbal skills communicated by others4. Negotiation, working with others to come to final conclusion5. Problem solving; working with others to understand and solve the problem amicably6. Decision making; Exploring and analyzing options to make sound decision7. Assertiveness; communicating our values, ideas, beliefs, our opininions on a common platform.Interpersonal skills become so natural that we take them granted, and we never think that how we have to communicate with other people. With a little time and efforts you can develop these skills. Good interpersonal skills acan develop many aspects of life of person both professionally and personally. Many organizing now a days are hiring a person only with good interpersonal skills.A Professor has to teach the students, and a person having poor interpersonal skills cannot transmit the ideas into the mind of students effectively. A professor is a personality which a student used to copy and try to inculcate. A person (professor) without good qualities (interpersonal skills) cant be hero of his or her students.Hope i made it clearGood Luck....
Dear FriendYou have asked very intersting question that all aspirants must know before joining the academics. I have experienced the best things out of my life and learnt that a professor shows the best path to his / her students not only by teaching a course rather transmitting the statement of life and eventually becomes a role model of mass. Kindly try to understand the moral of story by narrating the followinf themetic points:1. Humanity and natural world: This is the foundation of any profession which is understood just like a poure container which keeps your entire inherent property which you gain from the parents, family and society. So must know the definition of humanity. Therefore your humanity must reciprocate t the natural world which will be reflected in your personality. 2. Wisdom and ethics: These two are very sensitive parts of life your wisdom will control your aggression while attending any owckward situation in life if you succeed it then it becomes the ethics for others. This conduct will make you more stronger and certainly students will follw the same even notorious students will start to think about your nature and will admire you. 3. Desciplined Life: Teachers alwyas complain about the classroom descipline and scold students that why you are being indisciplined actually it is the defeat of a teacher which is being reflected in ugly manner. One good professor never shouts on students neither teach the lesson of discipline rather carry the discipline while teaching subjects modules in flow, delivering the relevent lecture -there is no mixing of loos talk, no pin point, puntual in classroom, never show any interest in any student -stereotyping, never creat any uncofortable sitaution among colleagues and students. maintain balance in personal and professional life. 4. Respectfull life: Respect begets respect do not think that you deserve respect from student by showing the agression and humiliating students rather show the sense of respect to your students. Even your student do not wish you does not matter wish them and extend the hands of friendship not with malafied intension though you teach them good lesson of moral. It will be impressive and students and junior coleagues will follow the same. I think a professor has all these valauble assets to carry out the job of academics. Best.
