By teaching and leading others I learned more about myself and the person I was meant to be.

To this day this thought has stayed with me!

Leadership is good for you?  How?

No matter how you look at it leadership is great for your Self Image

How many opportunities do you get to look it the mirror and say “Yeah I did that …  I was amazing”  Every time you set foot on the mat, you have an incredible opportunity to pass on your knowledge to someone else.  I cannot describe the feeling you get when the person you coached passed their grading with flying colours.

Just to let you into a secret …  Sensei Phil is more nervous than you are on Grading Day!

Self Esteem

Did you know that Self Esteem is something you develop and are not born with?

It’s built by being valued and accepted  by the people around you.  During leadership training we teach you step by step and along the way we build your skills leaving feeling

  1. Capable of leading
  2. Effective as a leader
  3. Accepted by those around you


This comes from taking ownership of the learning of others.  Those you influence will start to look to you as the ‘go to’ person and then you can start re evaluating the labels you have about yourself.  Lets face it having responsibilities makes you more confident.

As well as all this I have seen our Young Leaders develop stronger friendships with people they wouldn’t normally socialise with.  They become more optimistic and positive for the future because they know where they are going.   They develop a deeper understanding of what it is they are learning because to teach a skill to another, they have to really understand how the technique themselves.

Overall the benefits are clear, I am thankful for all the opportunities being a leader has to offer.  I look forward to learning more everyday.
