September POWerful Word – LEADERSHIP – Week 1

Say, in your own words, what is a leader? A leader is someone who knows what s/he wants, makes good choices, and sets important goals. A leader is also someone that other people want to follow. But great leaders are more than that. What do you think is the most important thing about being a great leader (i.e. character, fair, listening)? A leader doesn’t just boss people around and tell them what to do. When a great leader is in the room, how should they make other people feel (i.e. like they matter, they have good ideas, everyone’s ideas are important)? How can you be a leader when (1) Someone needs help (i.e. help him, get help for him, help him get the help he needs, get a group together to help). (2) Your little brother/sister/cousin is scared of something. (3) You and your friends don’t know what game to play. (4) People aren’t listening to the teacher. Good job!

If you have time: As leaders, how can giving to others inspire others to give? Have you given to charity?
