Course 10 – Learning to Lead.
At some point in time in your life you will be called to lead. Whether it will be in;
Academic teams (math team, debate club, etc.)
Arts (theater, band, choir, glee club, dance, etc.)
Athletic teams • Community service/volunteering
Employment (afterschool jobs, internships, etc.)
Political organizations (model U.N., alliance of students of color, international relations club, etc.)
Publications (school newspaper, literary magazine, yearbook, etc.)
Although I have been fortunately to have lead teams at multiple levels found in the aforementioned categories I was never really prepared for my first leadership role. In retrospect I really had no idea what was expected of me except to work harder than everyone and be more committed. Now after 40 years of leading teams (Athletic, community, business) I realized that just because every leader has to be a leader for the first time some time they can certainly be better prepared.
