Role of School in Nurturing Leadership Skills in Childrenby Vagishwariworld School Play School
While most of the leadership skills come naturally, yet they have to be properly nurtured, especially in the case of children. Children, who learn the art of leadership from a very early age, can have a significant impact on their later stage of life. Remember, children’s are the leaders of tomorrow. So it is important to nurture the right skills of leadership in them from the very beginning. And as the school is the best teacher for a child, they are the ones who can help to develop leadership skills among their young ones. Also, a child’s parent may be a leader themselves in their work field. This acts as an add-on teaching leadership skills.
Following are some of the ways in which a school can help in nurturing leadership skills in children-
Set a Good example – As a leader, it is always important to set examples for your team. This is also true in the case of a school. As a teacher, one must always allow the students to see how well the teacher can balance the personal and professional life and teach them how to take accountability through effective leadership.
Encourage Team Activities – As a teacher, one must identify the interest of the children at a very early age and encourage them to participate in group activities in the areas of their interest. The child can join a school band or NCC or even can take part in the outdoor games like Cricket and football with his/her bunch of friends.
Learn to learn from Mistakes – The best leaders are the ones who can handle failure as calm way as they can handle success. Therefore, it is important to expose the future leaders to learn to handle disappointments rather than protecting them from it. Children should learn to cope up with the loss and move forward to attain other goals of their life.
Build Negotiation skills – Every good leader knows the art of how to compromise. Thereby, instead of saying a yes or no to the request of the students directly, give them an offer and allow them to have a debate with valid points to stick to their offer. Also, teach a child to never give up on something without asking something else in return.
Practise Communication – A good leader is always a good communicator. Thus, as teachers as well as parent one needs to always exercise confidence building sessions so that a child learns the art of powerful communication not only among the friends but also in front of a school crowd.
