Yes, negotiation is an important practice to teach. Every good leader knows the art of compromise or negotiation.
Don’t let them settle for a mere yes or no. Teach them how to negotiate or how to never give up something until they get something they want in return.
Negotiation skills also help the child’s brain to develop in such a way that he/she knows to make the best out of the deal or opportunity by looking at it from different angles.
1. Encourage teamwork
A leader leads a team. So encourage your child to take part in group activities and voice his/her opinion. Teach him how to work in groups and handle things and people. Let the child become friendly to such an environment before stepping out in the real world.
2. Practice Confidence building exercise
Tell the importance of being confident to your child. Practice such exercises where he/she can participate and reflect confidence. It’s important to be confident while making decisions because no one hears a person who already seems to be confused rather than being confident and manipulative.
3. Find a mentor
No doubt that you are an amazing mentor to your child but try to find a role model for them in their field of interest which will grow their interest more and which will motivate them for the same.
4. Make them aware of the dangers of procrastination
To procrastinate is a common practice but aware your child about the dangers of it and how they need to make sure that it never turns out to be a habit. Because when that’ll happen, it’ll prevent them from reaching their goal and they might not like that.
5. Tell them how to embrace failures
Being a leader does not mean that you have to attain success every time. It’s important to teach your child that ‘you will grow, only when you’ll fall so never be scared of falling’. Just tell them that they have to learn from their failures rather than losing hope if they want to be a great leader.
