During our lessons this week, we will talk about three specific Leadership skills: being positive in our outlook, taking the initiative, and striving to improve. Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:
“The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.” — Ray Kroc (founder of MacDonald’s restaurants)
Being positive and proactive, taking the initiative, and striving to improve are all important leadership skills. Being positive means having an open mind and a “Can Do” attitude — keeping an optimistic outlook on whatever our situation may be. Initiative means that we take action when we see something that needs to be done — we don’t wait around for someone else to do it. Striving to improve means that we try to get a little bit better every day.
- When we work with a new skill in our lessons together, do you believe you can learn how to do it?
- How can you take the initiative on something?
- What is something you would like to get better at?
