It is true that some people are natural born leaders, but for most people becoming a leader is something that you have to learn and develop over time. You can learn to lead through hard work, determination, trial and error, and, quite often, by studying the leadership qualities of others. Becoming a leader is a work in progress. Maybe you’ve always pictured yourself as someone who can lead or inspire others; or maybe leadership is something you’d like to develop. Opportunities for understanding how to be a good leader exist in school, everyday life and in your after school activities. Learning to be a leader can help you achieve your life goals.
