LEADERSHIP IS CHILDS PLAY
Every time I post a view of "children and leadership", it quickly rises to the top of the reading list. Do children inspire leadership or are they leaders by nature? Are children the best example we have of leadership? And what aspects of "childish" nature best support the growth of a leader? There must be some link between the two.
Children do not lead in an adult world. But, all children have qualities that not all adults have. Children lose innocence quickly and by teenage have very fine opinion. All children grow rapidly. Adults stop growing rapidly. Children always play unless ill. Yet every adult always needs a reason to play any game at all.
I am not sure that we should elect children to lead, but children by nature have purity and virtue we could use. Would there be a change in our leaders if we had innocence to inspire integrity. Guts to grow in wisdom. And the character to work well with everyone around us. That sounds like child's play.
