Keys of Leadership Education
by: Kerry Beck

Leadership education is composed of 3 primary components:

1. Time - Structure time, not content. Set aside a specific amount of time each day to study. As mom, you can "teach" during that time and also allow your children to study. Some of this depends on your children's ages.

2. Mentors - Mentors are necessary to model the habits of studying and to guide the student in his studies. Mentors should spend regular time with their students to discuss what is read and written. This may be daily, weekly, or monthly depending on how old the student is. Older kids can meet less frequently than younger students.

3. Classics - No surprise here! Classics are the center of leadership education, as they have been for centuries. Classics form the basis of real education for leaders, entrepreneurs, and statesmen.
