Developing Teen Leadership free pdf Not long ago, all it took to have a comfortable career was to do well in high school, get a college degree, and find a nice stable job. But the world is changing rapidly, and many of the nice stable jobs have moved to developing countries. Even a college degree is not the sure investment it once was. Good grades are not enough. But there remain endless opportunities for those with real leadership skills - regardless of career choice. Leadership skills are what you need to manage a team, to stand out as an employee, to start a business and to nail that interview. The skills required to inspire and motivate others, to communicate effectively, to take initiative, and to make and execute plans, are as important as a high grade point average (if not more so). But how do you teach these skills to teenagers? Parents, teachers, coaches, scoutmasters, youth counselors and advisors strive to do so every day - but often have limited training on how best to accomplish that goal. This book fills that gap. This is not an academic or theoretical book on youth leadership. It is a relentlessly practical guide on how to effectively guide teens to become leaders. It covers virtually every topic, issue and skill you need to know - and how to teach it. You'll even learn how to teach teen leaders to teach leadership skills to each other, thus helping them become even stronger leaders.

About Dan Appleman

Dan Appleman brings the lessons from over 20 years of experience as a youth group advisor (in addition to stints as a part time religious school teacher, camp counselor and court appointed special advocate) to Developing Teen Leadership. Author of "How Computer Programming Works," "Always Use Protection: A Teen's Guide to Safe Computing," and numerous other technical books, Dan is better known for his technical career as CEO of Desaware Inc, Co-Founder of Apress publishing, and now CTO and co-founder of Full Circle CRM. But he would argue that his volunteer career as a youth group advisor has been the more important of the two careers.
