Leadership Discussions for Classrooms - Extending the Workshop

I would love to be able to take the credit for finding this video and the discussion that followed, but I can't. A Grade 9 group followed one of our MetaMorph masterclass workshops with further leadership discussion in the classroom.

The video they used to start the discussion was 'Duct Tape Surfing' below (thank you Sheriden for sharing what your students had done). One of the simple yet powerful questions they asked was 'Who is the leader in this situation?' and from the discussions flowed others, such 'What are the everyday things that we can do to demonstrate leadership?'

We loved this so much that we had to share it with you. Once students understand beyond the words of leadership - and they begin to understand the behaviours and actions they can do to demonstrate leadership - they can truly do some amazing things, both for themselves, their School and the students around them.

 

If this is a theme you would like to extend with your students, consider also the ted.com video 'Lollipop Leadership moments' - we have found that it draws a similar discussion on grass roots leadership.

 

if you would like further information, examples, or activities to develop the leadership and teamwork abilities of your students, give us a call on (03) 9282 6683 or 0409 627 270.
