Student Leaders Take Initiative

Student Leaders Take Initiative

Members Only
In this lesson, students will learn the difference between a leader who takes initiative and one who misses the boat.

Details

It’s one thing to make up for lost time, it’s another thing to not lose any time in the first place. As students face the many leadership opportunities in front of them, it can be paralyzing to dive in and start off on the right foot. Fear of failure, indecision, and a “me-first” mindset are just a few of the reasons why. In this lesson, students will learn the difference between a leader who takes initiative and one who misses the boat. Students will study the initiative of the good Samaritan, take a look at false starts in sports, and test their own ability to take initiative through an experiential activity.
