Identify and Inspire Your Student Leaders

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. This can be a challenge for educators, as your actions may differ depending on the needs of certain students.

Or maybe you see these qualities in some of your own students. See if any of your students exhibit any of these qualities:

  • They are always on time or even early, and ready to work.
  • They frequently ask, “Can I help with anything?”
  • They assist other students who need help.
  • They are kind to everyone.
  • Other students recognize their leadership.

Notice how there was no mention of musical talent or ability, or even anything about grades in general.

While your job is to inspire all of your students, spend some time this week thinking of how to inspire your student leaders to make an impact on their program. How can you play a role in their leadership development?
