To be a leader one has to have some qualities. Proper nurturing, preaching and grooming can bring out your innate leadership qualities that you were unaware of. Some people would oppose this opinion saying that leaders are born, not made. The truth is that every uncut diamond has to go through a series of different procedures for becoming a true jewel. The same is applicable to the future leaders of our world. Knowledge and guidance act like beacons of light that can make your journey to leadership an easy one. The trainers and teachers who are accustomed to train future leaders know the right techniques for doing so. In the following some of their methods are discussed.
They start with setting examples:
Young students are most of the times clueless as to how they can fit in their society and cope with their circumstances. They need the intelligent and thoughtful guidance of experienced trainers to tell them what their strengths are. A good teacher sets an ideal for their students by behaving in an exemplary manner. Students often idolize their teachers so if a teacher practices what they preach it becomes easier for the students to find the co-relation between morals and attitude. With time they also adapt the good qualities preached and have their own set of ethics for dealing with different situations wisely.
Indoor and outdoor learning:
Leadership qualities are harvested and fostered with care. One cannot learn about leadership just from books. Interaction is a very important tool for bringing out the leadership qualities in your students. Show them movies where the protagonist has some of the best leadership qualities. Discuss the importance of being a good listener and the value of team work. Field work is also important for learning leadership skills. Trainers must take their students on field trips to court of laws for the hearing of important and interesting cases and let them do individual and independent research on different leadership topics.
Working on the weak points:
It is the duty of the teachers to give attention to every student and help them overcome their weaknesses to be a real leader. We all have some deficiencies but these can be sorted out with patience and perseverance. A teacher finds out exactly what is stopping their student from flourishing. When a student understands his/her shortcomings then they must be encouraged to get over it.
