Very important part of the modern education management in China is the problem of creating proper conditions for good personal socialization and the development of personality of students to meet modern social requirements. The People's Republic of China, which has ended the industrial revolution relatively not so long ago, is currently one of the centers of information and technological progress. The intensive growth in average life level around the country has leaded to acute increase of general education level and has created a need for more specialized and high educated professionals. The percent of the population, who enroll to universities for higher education in China grows sufficiently. In 2012 it was only 30 percent, when in 2021 it made a historic jump up of 27,8 percent reaching 57,8 percent [1].  At the same time, universities need qualified teachers, who can achieve success and motivate students on not only study the program, but also self-enhance, be a living example, a leader. Modern teacher needs to both give the students the knowledge and social capital. To do that, a teacher should have certain professional qualities of the personality which determines him as a leader.
