September POWerful Word – LEADERSHIP – Week 3

All leaders need to have goals! What is a goal (i.e. something you want to learn/achieve)? What is a goal that you have worked on and have achieved in the past (i.e. rank/level, grade, team, competition)? As leaders, we also must set goals as a group– the goal can’t just be about you– it has to be about the group you are leading…why? What might be a “group goal” for (1) Our class (2) A sports or competitive team (3) An orchestra? What is OUR collective goal here in class? Why is it important for leaders to help their team to set group goals (i.e., connect, unify)? A leader must also communicate the goal to the team. How can a leader talk about a goal in a way that gets people motivated (i.e. start with the END in mind- what they will see, sense, say, tell the team s/he believes in them). What would YOU do?

If you have time: What happens when the leader has a bad attitude about the goal or the ability to achieve it?
