Building kids into leaders might take a little bit of coaching from parents.
In a recent article by Forbes, contributor Kathy Caprino outlines seven parenting behaviors that restrain kids from reaching their full potential as leaders.
Caprino also consults with leadership expert and best-selling author Dr. Tim Elmore about how parents can avoid these behaviors and help their kids become better leaders, Forbes reported.
“It’s important for parents to become exceedingly self-aware of their words and actions when interacting with their children, or with others when their children are nearby. Care enough to train them, not merely treat them to a good life,” Elmore said in the Forbes article. “Coach them, more than coddle.”
