Teaching #Leadership to Our Kids at #DadChat – #Giveaways

Category: #DadChat

Leadership cartoon - #humor
Where will our kids learn about leadership? From our leaders? Okay, that was a rhetorical question. From our celebrities? Another rhetorical question. From parents that are not present or work all the time? You know the answers to all these questions. There’s a vacuum and those of us still doing parenting must fill it – at least for our kids. We can’t count on schools to do much of anything other than teach a politically correct agenda. So, #DadChat has brought on two experts in this area to help us figure it out and learn how to teach leadership (to our kids). Alli Polin and Karin Hurt will be our guest hosts this Thursday, January 29 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET. We will be giving away THREE copies of Karin’s book, “Overcoming an Imperfect Boss.”

    I’ve been having this discussion in several threads on RallyPoint which has a largely military audience. Many there wonder why our nation is so poorly led and this is the explanation I’ve been offering: The reason that so few leaders are elected to high office is that our politicians are being selected largely by civilians who wouldn’t recognize a leader if one bit them (you know where). Most civilians have been “managed” in their careers, but rarely led.

    Yes, of course, not all superior officers in the military are good leaders. Indeed, we’re lucky is half are. Still, those who serve recognize them and follow the good ones willingly, the bad ones begrudgingly.

    Ultimately, as a former military leader, I learned that a good leader is a teacher. If you want things done your way, teach your subordinates your way. They follow only as well as you teach. Conversely, a good teacher is a leader. Sadly, we have few of those in our schools, colleges, and universities ever since indoctrination replaced education.
