Today Sean the police man came and did a leadership speech too. He gave three examples of leadership which were challenging yourself, being a role model and and leading by example. He also answered our questions about leadership. There were some same things that Mrs. Montgomery and Sean was that they both spoke about was it doesn’t matter whether you have a badge or not. Mrs. Montgomery told to trust you Colleagues and Sean is to yell at them.
•Challenge yourself: when you can’t do something, for example you are shy and you had to do speech. You would have to challenge yourself to do the speech.
•Role model: being a role model is when you are the leader and people will do what ever you do. So you must do the right things to become a good leader.
•Lead by example: you need to tell people or lead them to do the right thing. If you are doing it, you need to have a kind voice, not yelling at them.
Today Mrs. Montgomery, our principal did a speak about leadership in the morning. She spoke about seven things that helps you make a better leader. The seven things were honesty, listening, trust your friends, stay strong, sense of humour, teamwork and focusing on what is important.
•Honesty: Honesty is to own up to your mistake and by dong that, people trust you to do something.
•Listening: When you are listening you can take notes and give your opinion about something in a meeting.
• Trust your friends: By trusting them, they know that you are a good friend and let’s you do the right things.
• Stay strong: Staying strong is when something bad is happened, you don’t just leave it and sulk, you just have to face it.
• Sense of humour: Having a sense of humour is having a laugh with your friends by laughing with them, not at them. Mostly is doing that when people are having hard times.
•Teamwork: Teamwork is groups of people working together to achieve what one person can’t achieve. Working with people is done a lot of times at leadership.
•Focusing on what is important: Focusing on what is important is listing important things during speeches and meetings. Also including other importing notes of things.
