    What to do when one of the teachers in your college is very talented but takes a lot of leaves?

    I am the Principal of a government college. I have been noticing for quite sometime now that one of the teachers in our college, who is very talented, takes a lot of leaves. I was lenient with her earlier because of her talent and mastery in her subject. But now I think she is taking undue advantage of this. What should
    be done in such a situation?

    Hello Sir, Talent/virtues are always recognised at work place, however, only till the person starts taking an undue advantage of her/his virtues. Please advise the teacher concerned in a polite and encouraging manner that she is an asset for your college and your respect her virtues, however, she needs to maintain the discipline of the college too because that cites good example on the juvenile students. Tell her that attendance is one of the most important aspects of discipline in the college and being a role model, she should be regular in college. Respect your teachers for their virtues but check them for their vices because you are the leader and they have to follow you. Thanks.

    As a talented teacher you have already given many opportunities to avail leaves before.He/she should not take it as a lenient.He/She should also act as a responsible teacher in the college cause the students may not suffer with their studies. Though he/she is a talented and having good command in the subject concerned, this type of practice is not all good.you can have a discussion with them, explaining them their responsibilities and the work suffered because of their continuous leave/absence. Even if they continue the habit, warning letter be issued to them.If it still continues, then disciplinary action be taken with approval of management.

    regards

    hello mam,
    I think you should warn that teacher and try to make her understand that taking unnecessary leaves will degrade her performance as well as your institutes performance.
    As she is talented , she would understand you . What is worth of talent if not utilized properly . Give her some advantage that if she tries to be consistent and tries to attend your institute regularly then some perks will be issued to her.
    Some non monetary advantages may be given like to praise her in auditorium in front of students, marking her name on notice boards.
    These advantages may help you to make her consistent in her attendance.

    hello,
    as you are a principal of the school you have every right to do anything but think twice regarding the issue and if the teacher is well good enough tell her what is the problem and ask her why she takes a lot of leaves.
    try to find out a solution and say her not to leave school as she is one of the good teacher in your school.
    thank you...........
