Call to lead
K-Kids can help young people answer their call to lead. Every person has leadership potential, and service clubs provide a forum for young leaders to unlock theirs. Someone with a call to lead will decide to step forward when the easier choice might have been to stand still. The service club experience at a young age can help students accept their own identity as a leader, enhance their knowledge of how to be a leader who is others-centered, and develop their ability to move an idea into purposeful action.
What do K-Kids members who have a call to lead look like? You might notice members who:
- Show an increased willingness to step forward to volunteer.
- Display humility when entrusted with leadership positions.
- Gain energy by solving problems and addressing big issues.
- Steadily increase their involvement.
- Say, "I am a leader".
Here are ways you can help members answer the call to lead.
- Provide training to elected leaders on not just the technical aspects, but on the soft skills of listening, recognizing and empowering.
- Praise and recognize members who lead with humility and/or display leadership that is others-centered.
- Pay attention and show appreciation to members who contribute more than before.
- Talk about leaders and leadership in terms of something all members have the capacity for, not just officers.
- Make sure the club's operations and decisions are student led.
