Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again.

Leadership literature, blogs, and seminars typically focus on telling leaders the right things to do if they want to succeed. That makes sense for most of us. We want seasoned professionals to help us learn from their mistakes and accumulated wisdom. By sharing the most valued aspects of what great leaders do to inspire others, leaders at any level can learn to improve their skills. Those of us seeking advice expect it framed in a positive way. However, there may be other ways to learn leadership—primarily by better understanding how we fail as leaders and how to correct our actions. Skill areas such as athletics, craftsmanship, or the creative arts require educators or coaches to constantly point out what their students are doing wrong and what correction is required. Even a minor flaw in form or technique can lead to overall failure, so understanding what not to do can be just as important as knowing the right approach.
