10 tips for surviving your new leadership role TechRepublic (blog) As a leader, your time management skills must be superb. Everything depends on your ability to balance the daily tasks appointed to you, with both project management and other duties.
Marybethtownsend's insight:
This is good advice for budding leaders in Key Club. The skills are applicable even to high school students. I especially liked to suggestion to mentor others. We often end up with a void in leadership because the underclassmen don't know how to lead. If the officers saw themselves as mentors for the underclassmen, we would build on their skills and expertise.

Lisa Way, of Hobart, is someone who wants to make a difference in her community.

Don Dea's curator insight, December 13, 2014 1:23 AM

Are you ready to consistently set a good example? Can you be engaging,

good-humored, tactful, available, considerate, courteous, honest, reliable, and understanding, every day, all day? 

Being an effective leader is a task not everyone can do. At least not without guidance from mentors, experience, desire to think of others first, and the will to absorb his or her staff’s positive and negative traits. Are you leadership material?
