What is leadership? It is an ability to inspire and motivate others, to communicate effectively, to take initiative, to make plans and execute them, and much more. These skills are very important seeing the world we live in today. Not long ago all it took to have a easy career was to do well in high school, get a college degree, and find a nice stable job. But this complex world is changing rapidly, many of the nice stable jobs have moved to developing countries, and even a college degree is not the sure investment it once was.
Good grades are not enough.
But there remain endless opportunities for young minds with real leadership skills – regardless of career choice. Leadership skills are what you need to manage a team, to stand out as an employee, to start a business and to nail that interview.
How do we teach those skills to our younger generation? Parents, teachers and coaches strive to do so every day – but often have limited (if any) training on how best to accomplish this goal. This book fills that void. This is not exactly an academic book on youth leadership but builds on a story of an African girl who goes on to become a leader in her community by taking lessons from the events occurring in her life. It does not contain flowery language with not-so-clear concepts that will leave you wondering how to put them into practice. It contains no wishful thinking about how our young generation or the world should be.
So get yourself a copy and try it out. You won’t regret it.
