Brendan Cox reading his new book: "Strictly Business: How to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur"

Leadership is exceptional quality for everybody. It’s an important function of being an entrepreneurs as it helps to maximize efficiency and to achieve your goals in a timely manner. Some kids are born with leadership qualities, while others need to work on developing these traits. Here are 10 tips to help you instill leadership qualities in your kids.

1. Team Activities

Working in a team teaches your kid how to work collaboratively. Kids are naturally empathetic and take care of each other. Allow and encourage your kids to work in a team, whether it’s course work or fun activity. They will have fun and learn how to lead the group.

2. Communication

Kids gain confidence when they speak out how they feel and what they think. Don’t turn them off if they want to discuss some wild ideas. Encourage them to speak, especially in front of peers.

3. Role Play

Role play is also a constructive activity where children learn while having fun. Use role play to teach kids how leaders behave in situations where leadership is a must. 

4. Decision Making

Decision making is very important for any leader. You can encourage your child to assist you in making decisions early on about everyday life situations. Discuss with them the pros and cons of choice and let them decide for themselves instead of forcing your decision upon them.

5. Lead By Example

Children mostly learn from parents. Be a good example and show them how leaders behave in everyday life. Guide them through the right direction of establishing leadership qualities.

6. Negotiation

Negotiation is a must-have quality for a leader. Teach them how to negotiate without compromising the interest of all parties involved.

7. Humility

Humility is a trait that every human being must possess if we want a better world. Instill humility in kids by showing them with your actions.

8. Work On Project

Encourage your kid to pursue projects or assign them yourself. Working on various projects helps them in decision making.

9. Reading Is The Key

Instill the habit of reading in children from the early stages of life. Start with stories in pre-school years and then gradually lead them to read books of their interests.

10. Find Them A Mentor

Leaders look forward to a mentor for guidance and motivation. Help them find a mentor or a public figure to look up to.  Are you an aspiring entrepreneur? Check out my new book: Strictly Business: How to Crush it as a Young Entrepreneur.
