How to raise a leader

For women watching at home:

  1. Being a good listener is one of the most important parts of leading, at home, in the community and in your job.

  2. Be accountable.

  3. The power of a mission to make the world a better place.

For their children:
  1. The most important thing you need to keep foremost in your mind for your whole life as a parent is that; you lead by example. Your children will model your actions and your words. So what message are they receiving from you?

  2. Teach then to be accountable and responsible. Even a toddler can have a toy box and put a toy away each evening.

  3. There is a fine balance between helping your children and over sheltering them from all of life's realities; Life isn't fair, we fail on the road to success, life is not about winning every time, it is about the journey and trying.
