Abstract
Education is a medium in improving one's self-quality. On the other hand, along with the times and various advances in technology and information, education is faced with big issues related to the character of students who currently have a very worrisome morality. It cannot be denied that the developments that occur in each era will have negative and positive impacts. In the education process, the existence of teachers as educators has a great responsibility because with the advancement of technology and information, not only can make a person smart but also can make a person has a bad moral and character. Having superior intelligence is a desirable achievement, but it does not mean ignoring the values of culture and character. To that end, the soul of leadership also needs to be owned by every teacher as an educator as a leader must be able to lead as well as bring students to a better change. This research illustrates how teacher’s actions can influence and play a major role in student character and soft skill building.
