From Good Kid To Great Leader, Yes, You Can!
Is there a difference between a good student/worker and a leader? Well, yes, there is!
In most cases, good students/workers use their specific skills, expertise, and knowledge to achieve goals. The primary role of leaders is to inspire and influence people. Of course, both functions are crucial, and sometimes, a person must act as both a student/worker and a leader. To explain further, here are some key differences between each of the roles:
Leaders set the vision; good students/workers follow it
Leaders think about ideas; good students/workers think about execution
Leaders inspire people; good student/workers drive their success
Leaders look to the future; good students/workers work in the present
Leaders shape the culture; good students/workers encourage and support it.
The Junior Leadership Boot Camp course presents a range of practical ideas, tips, and techniques; it gives opportunities to discuss issues, work with your fellow participants, and undertake personal self-assessments to help cadets learn more about themselves and how they can become a highly effective leader.
