Leave a reply When Isabel, my older daughter, finished 3rd grade, she was recognized by her teacher for her leadership potential. Lee, her head teacher, advised us to nurture her leadership skills — allow her to make her own decisions, encourage her to volunteer and lead activities, let her explore new ideas.
I remember being both impressed by his comments and proud of Isabel. I grew up in China where top grades and ranking 1 were the only focal point of my elementary and junior high education. I was told then in high school to get into a top college, I must demonstrate leadership skills.
I only knew the tactic meaning of it — Leadership skills was about showing I was well rounded and had experience leading diverse non-classroom activities.
So I was a good Chinese student and did exactly that.
This is part of the reason I write this blog, so you can learn it earlier than I did. If you want to develop leadership skill, start by understanding why they are so important to your career advancement. Here to help me explain is my fellow Executive Author, Jaime Lapena.
Below is a 10 min candid conversation between Jaime and I about the importance of leadership skills at any level of an organization. We look forward to your questions and comments about this topic. Okay Jaime, thank you for joining me today.

And the values you have are going to transmit to the people you want to influence. Yeah, even the CEO has customers and stake holders as… Jaime: Well he has the board.
CEO that could manage the board very well.
And horizontally, every which way. Some of the reasons for developing leadership skills…I think there are three reasons. I think it should be as early as possible. As early as possible, right. The more you are leading yourself; you can have the freedom and control to like manage your own career.
You can inspire your manager to believe in your skills. You can inspire a co-worker to help you on a side project. So it can make your work life a lot more meaningful overall.
And so for me, I think leadership skills is one of those, like you said, the earliest you can develop the better. Because by example it will just by nature be seen by people, if that makes sense.
