Some of the most exciting and rewarding sessions I delivered this year were the ones I facilitated with sixth graders at a local school.
During the sessions, follow-up conversations, meetings and graduation, I was intrigued by many of the comments made by the students as they shared their views on leadership. I made it a point to capture some of their most meaningful observations.
Here are a few priceless comments from these wise leaders:
~Leadership is doing something special or hard
~Seeing the best in others instead of being mean
~Keep in mind a person’s strengths even when they make me mad
~If I am wrong, I learn something
~Social responsibility is being loyal to your friends
~Leadership is getting things done and having fun
~Doing my best work and being OK when I am not at my best
