DISCOVERED the X-FACTOR to Being a GREAT LEADER!

▶ 𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀:

REALIZE!

“I REALIZE I AM FEARLESS!

I REALIZE I CAN ADAPT!

I REALIZE I CARE!

I REALIZE I SHOULD TALK ‘EM UP!

I REALIZE I AM ORIGINAL!

& I REALIZE..

I AM THE X-FACTOR!”

🗣 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: The Apex leadership lessons finished today, and discovered what it means to be the “X-FACTOR”. Awesome job! How can you apply what you’ve learned at home and school to keep being a great leader all year long?

#ApexLeadershipCo #ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders

▶ 𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀:

Be ORIGINAL!

You’re the FIRST!

What you bring to the world MATTERS

ONE OF A KIND

ONLY ONE YOU

“THIS INDIVIDUAL IS AN ORIGINAL!”

🗣𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: Help your child think of 5 things that are special or unique about them. What makes them who they are?

#ApexLeadershipCo #ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders

▶ 𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀:

TALK ‘EM UP!

Talking POSITIVELY about ourselves..

Gives us strength to KEEP GOING

Strength to OVERCOME CHALLENGES

ENCOURAGE others

Bring out the BEST in others

“TALK TALK TALK ‘EM UP!”

🗣 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: Ask your child how it feels when someone pays them a compliment or says something encouraging. Talk about ways that they can also make others feel good about themselves. Discuss words and phrases that can turn negative thoughts around, like instead of saying “I can’t do that,” say “I can’t do that, YET.” Rather than focusing on being smart or good at something, change the focus to how hard they tried or how much they have improved.

#ApexLeadershipCo #ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders

▶ 𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀:

SERIOUS about reaching our GOALS

🗣 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: Talk to your child about ways they can show they care about their responsibilities and the things they enjoy doing. Make a list of 5 things that they care about and put maximum effort towards.

#ApexLeadershipCo #ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders

▶ 𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀:

ADAPT!

ADJUST to different situations..

especially when they’re OUT OF OUR CONTROL

“ADAPT DAP DAP DAP DAP DA DAPT!”

-Arctic Fox-

🗣 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: Talk with your child about a situation they have gone through that required they adapt or change their behaviors or expectations. Do they sometimes struggle with new experiences? What are some things that will help them adjust and feel more comfortable?

#ApexLeadershipCo# ApexXFACTOR #BuildingLeaders

▶ 𝗧𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆’𝘀 𝗔𝗽𝗲𝘅 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽 𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀:

Be FEARLESS!

Take the first step into the UNKNOWN

Push yourself OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

“CLEAR THE FEAR.. MY PATH IS HERE!”

🗣 𝗔𝘁 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗿: Ask your child if they have ever been afraid to try something new because they thought they wouldn’t be able to do it well. Talk to them about ways to break down a big challenge into smaller pieces, so it is easier to overcome.
