For those who believe leadership is a trait one is born with — well, I disagree. I’ve seen my kids follow their own peculiar drum beat but I’ve also seen them emulate the traits of others they admire. They’ve vacillated between both extremes, exerting leadership traits when confident and relinquishing that role by choice when unsure of how to proceed. In these situations I’ve observed them follow their instincts and have been relieved to see them not compromise hard held beliefs. (Well, “hard held beliefs” such as, “Cars is the best movie, no matter what you say!” or “Green in my favorite color except on Saturday and Sunday.”)

Surely these are the building blocks of future movers and shakers?

Ultimately, I hope for their sake they can avoid the trappings of group think and trust themselves (and their convictions) despite the naysayers.
