Homeschool Highschool Podcast Episode 31: Leadership & Followership Skills
Many teens don’t see themselves as leaders so don’t think about developing leadership skills. What they don’t realize is that someday they’ll be supervisors at work, Sunday school teachers, lead mechanics, etc. Leadership happens to most people at sometime.
The same is true of followership. Everyone is a team member at some time in life. If teens don’t know how to be good team players- or followers, they are at a disadvantage.
Colleges love to see leadership skills on transcripts!
Kym shares her experiences as the leader of a group called, SALTY. Which stands for Servant And Leadership Team Yo.
The group serves the homeschool group and the community.
The group found a passion to serving the homeless in their community. A favorite idea was a food raiser activity. They added in a little competition where they counted how many servings each item served instead of just counting items. Their first goal was for 5,000 servings! Hey I think there is a story in the bible about 5,000 people being served! What a way to be salty.
Leadership and Followership Skills:
- Every teen needs to develop the ability to lead- it will happen at times even to introverts.
- Every teen needs to develop the ability to follow- that happens at times even to extroverts!
Being ready for both isn’t that difficult! The skills are similar for being both leadership and followership.
What skills do your teens need in order to be ready for both?
