Leadership courses should be a part and parcel of the academic curriculum right from schools because the future needs strong leaders. The development of these future leaders begins now—in the classroom and at home, helping to shape the character of today’s youth. Everyone must grow up knowing and truly believing that they have a voice that has a place in this world, a voice that needs to be heard. Also, in order to succeed in any field, leadership is a crucial skill, as the world is getting more and more competitive.

This is a great lesson, but a very important one. This is a significant part of children’s self-image and identity.

Having a voice means they can stand up for themselves (and their friends) when they require it, they can help bring about positive change in the world, and they can express themselves when they need help.

Encouraging students to speak up about what they believe is an essential lesson in leadership.

Responsibility and accountability: Being answerable and being accountable go hand in hand. Students must become skilled at taking responsibility for themselves and their actions as they become future leaders.

This includes things like remembering to study for a test or walking the dog after school. Being responsible also means accepting your actions… Let’s say, for example, if you failed a test because you didn’t study. But that in itself is a great lesson for both responsibility and accountability.

Time management: It’s safe to say that almost everyone has spent way too much time browsing social media, watching Netflix, or playing video games, but these things (and other distractions) can turn into real-time idiots! Time management is the key to catching the bus, getting to class on time, and finding time to study… Not to mention the time it takes to do what the students are passionate about. The child should always have time to do what he loves.

Collaboration: Group work in class or in a group is a valuable way to help students solve problems together. It also allows students to help each other identify their strengths and help them develop those strengths in a team environment, as well as open their minds to different opinions and ways to solve a problem.

Develop own ideas: Students must be sure to trust their instincts and have the confidence and pride to develop their own projects and ideas. These important skills can help lay a solid foundation as young people move on with their lives and become the leaders of tomorrow. Tutors, teachers and mentors need to come forward to help develop these skills in today’s children.

Children should be given the opportunity to experiment with various leadership positions in the classroom. Teachers should educate kids on the role and obligations of each classroom task and mentor them so that they take on those responsibilities as a leadership role. Grouping of children can inculcate more sense of leadership and team building in children.
