Like Pokemon, student leaders have different TYPES
Adapting TRUE COLORS to Pokemon
Which fits you the best?
Sticking with one type won't get you very far
The best teams utilize a variety of types
Some Leaders, like Pokemon, just have a natural talent and can lead on their own right away.
Other Leaders need to be trained before they can lead well.
Sometimes, it may take a lot of training, but the results can make some of the best leaders imaginable.
The Power of Teamwork
To Be a Master
Ash Ketchum
Brings out the best in others
Overconfident at times
Resistant to constructive criticism
The Journey and Destination
Not All Leaders Are The Same
Ash's mission is simple: "I want to be the best"
Over the course of his journeys, many short-term goals arise:
To defeat Team Rocket
To defeat all the Gym Leaders
To capture as many Pokemon as possible
Train Pokemon to be powerful
Make new friends
Short-Term Goals help get us closer to our overall goal
What is your overall goal?
What steps are needed make that a reality?
Every good leader has weaknesses that they must face from time to time.
Often, these weaknesses will challenge a leader and test them.
Keeping a open mind to the skills/knowledge/values of others
Intercultural Competency
The Elite Four
Team Rocket
“A great leader's courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.”
“A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader, a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves”
“Leaders are made, they are not born. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to achieve any goal that is worthwhile.”
Often, a leader will face a situations that where they must overcome advesity.
When these situations are overcome, the leader betters themselves and the community around them.
“The future starts today, not tomorrow. ”
All leaders eventually will have to prove themselves.
This final challenge is what separates the proverbial boys from the men.
If sucessful, the leader will have gained experience and proven themselves among their peers.
