4 Important Leadership Skills to Teach your Children

Leadership Instincts

Leadership is a practical and valuable skill that can help your child go far later in life. It’s good to start young. There are some simple and basic characteristic features that a parent can instill and nurture in child.

1. Good leaders are good communicators:

This does not mean the child has to be a constant talker. Communication includes listening too. Encourage the child to develop his/ her communication skills.

2.Develop a positive belief:


Leadership means adopting a “yes, I can!” approach. Provide opportunities for your child to try things for himself; to experience an appropriate level of challenge and to receive positive feedback for his effort.

3.Develop resilience: 

Overcoming challenges, being able to “bounce back” from disappointment and being open to trying a different approach are important areas that leaders should develop.

Modeling how you fix mistakes (and the fact that you make them), acknowledging feelings, encouraging your kid to ask questions and asking him to think and express his ideas are good ways you can work on enabling this.


4.Develop a sense of responsibility:

Being committed to something and taking ownership are qualities of a leader. Give him simple things to do, for example, helping with some of the household chores, tidying up toys, helping to water the plants, and so on.

Whether or not he becomes a great leader, helping your little one develop the areas mentioned above is important to help him fulfill his potential.
