Introduction to Leading
So you want to be a leader? That’s great! But what exactly is leadership?
There are many definitions of leadership, and many different ways
that youth can be leaders. A very simple definition of leadership
might be: “The
ability to use your skills and knowledge to change the way other
people think or act.”
Leaders are those people who others choose to follow. The following things prepare you to become a leader:
- developing good feelings about yourself and the things you are able to do,
- beginning to understand your strengths and limitations, and
- believing that other people really do care about what you say and do.
