Part 3: How to Get Schooled on Leader vs. Leadership

The final problem we need to solve in this workshop is the kids’ fear of taking on leadership roles. Why do we feel fearful when we we think of leadership?  "Because, when you ask someone what the word “leadership” evokes - what images, words, symbols, feelings or people spring to mind?  Responses are usually things like “vision,” “inspiring,” “greatness,” “Winston Churchill,” “Superman” and “awesome.”  The underlying idea is clear: leadership is a major, even heroic challenge, needing exceptional qualities.  But do most of us believe we have these qualities?  I suspect not." - John Scouller
