Once and Future Rulers

Examine what leadership skills made certain leaders effective (for example, Queen Lili`uokalani or President Lincoln). In addition to warfare and weaponry, did leaders use diplomatic or nonviolent tools for effective leadership? How might the leaders of the past rule differently in today’s world? What are the leadership qualities that are most likely to be needed in the future? Because of the change in homes and schools away from corporal punishment and towards peaceful leadership and shepherding techniques, youth can have an active voice in their opinion of what skills and qualities a leader, namely a parent and/or a teacher, can use to be an effective household and/or classroom leader.
