Descripción del producto

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.

Biografía del autor

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.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A fun, easy read and an amazing resource 4 de enero de 2012

I finished reading Developing Teen Leadership in one sitting I must say it is fantastic. Before I even get into how helpful it was for me just reading through it and discovering an amazing resource that I will come back to time and time again to plan programs, teach leadership, be a better youth advisor, etc. I must say that it was really well written and a fun and easy read. This is a very tough and in depth topic and Dan is able to go through a lot of crucial subjects and blend them together seamlessly.

This book is an amazing resource. I read it cover to cover (including all the footnotes). Dan's descriptions of how to plan and run leadership seminars, public speaking workshops, logistical/planning programs, communication trainings, and everything else is invaluable to me. In the almost 5 years I have spent as a volunteer youth advisor I have had trouble putting together and executing consistent programs to help the teens develop their own leadership skills while also sitting back and letting them make their own mistakes and truly lead the group.

Developing Teen Leadership has given me some great ideas for how to do this much better and more effectively and help me become a more complete youth advisor. Reading through the program ideas for leadership has inspired me to start planning my own programs again (certainly borrowing a few of the ideas in the book) and has helped me get over the hump and stop making excuses about why I did not need to or couldn't do these things. The concepts behind being a back seat driver and planting seeds always made sense to me but I could never seem to muster the patience to figure out how to do this on more of a wide scale in the group rather then just one on one with people that I had already developed strong relationships with.

This book will become my go to guide for being a youth advisor and has helped rekindle some of the passion I have been starting to lose for doing this. Just reading it yesterday has helped me feel more empowered to go do some of the amazing things that it talks about.

Great inspiring book for ANYONE who works with teens. I needed this for an education class and it is going on my reading shelf for when I need a pick me up read to get my gears going again to remember the best parts of working with teens and how to get them highly involved in what they do in the classroom, club or community.
