How a Dad can Raise the Potential Leader in the Child?

Leadership Instincts

Nurturing a kid is not just a Mother's job. Previously, we have discussed the role of a Dad in the early development of the child. Here are some tips he can instill in his child to become a good leader.

Be Willing to Stand Apart:

Teach the kid that strong leaders have an ability to step forward with courage of conviction and a willingness to take a stand when others won’t. They set a standard for others to chase. That’s the difference between a leader and the crowd. Being a part of the crowd gives a sense of security. Leadership requires the bravery to step out where it is unsafe.

Be Trustworthy:


In order to be an effective leader people have to be able to believe in you. A leader has to earn trust. That means always following through on promises and telling the truth time and time again. Your reliability should be scrupulous and predictable. When it’s not you lose credibility and when you lose that you lose your voice.

Care for Others:

 Leadership is not about empowering oneself, it’s about serving others. The best way to inspire people to a mission is to know their gifts and passions and then put them in a position to live them out. If you want to be a person of influence you need to see what people are today, what they could be, what they want to be, and then help them get there.

Define Reality:


A true leader is able to see himself for who he actually is (the good and the bad) and not how he wishes to be seen. Facing the truth, however ugly it may be, is essential. A leader seeks out feedback to gain a more clear picture rather than avoid it. Growth, change, innovation, and solutions are only possible when there is a firm understanding and acceptance of the current reality.

Never Stop Learning:

A good leader must first be a follower. Find a person possessing the type of leadership qualities you want and learn from them. Then never stop learning.
