Developing the Leadership Capabilities of Your Children
Michael McKinney of The Leading Blog points parents to a great article by Tim Elmore of GrowingLeaders.com about the attributes that we should be nurturing in our children. I especially liked the points about humility, gratitude, and being teachable - i.e. being willing to seek advice and wisdom from others, and being a good listener in those situations. We can all work on being more teachable - children as well as adults. As a faculty member, I think this list is useful to think about in terms of how we can nurture the development of our students personally as well as professionally.
