Why did I choose this book?

Every day is a new challenge for the parents on how to treat their kids. It is every parent's dream to see their kid have leadership qualities. So, the subtitle of the book caught my attention i.e. “Shaping Leaders of Tomorrow”.

About the author: Kalyankumar S. Hatti

The author is a master coach for business transformation. He is passionate about learning and transforming lives.  He strongly believes that everyone needs a teacher, a mentor, and a guide who can help one to achieve the success that someone is looking for in their life. He has written three books in total as of now. The author confidently welcomes everyone in the world of “Metamorphosis” which means the process of transformation into a new different world.

About the book:

This is such a short book conveying a great message hidden behind. The author’s message is crystal clear on "how to see the leader in your child". The best way to make them prepare is to start from now onwards. If they’re given the right guidance, they can become the best leader tomorrow.

“Leaders are not born, but leaders are made.” This book exactly throws the light on the same question: how can we shape leaders of tomorrow? One can cultivate leadership by following the right attributes.

The author has described 26 letters corresponding to 26 attributes which are explained in a simple and easy language. The book is for all school-going parents on how they can make their kids practice these exercises every day.

Everything takes time. So, kids also need time to polish themselves to shape themselves as leaders of tomorrow.

If you’re a parent or a teacher, it’s crucial to spend some quality time with your children to perform the given exercises. 

The author has also highlighted how one kid can maintain a ‘Journal Diary’. The main focus is on three things:-

  1. Thankfulness

  2. Forgiveness

  3. Celebration

  • The affirmations for being thankful can be written as “I’m thankful for the wonderful day”

  • I’ll forgive my friends today for hurting me

  • I’ve finished this task. Yay! What a great achievement.

How is this book helpful?

  • A quick push towards how to shape your kids to become a leader tomorrow

  • Practical exercise at the end of each chapter.

  • Easy to understand and to apply 

  • Don’t skip 4 chapters based on alphabets like ‘K’, ‘L’, ‘M’, and ‘W’- the four leadership styles.

Why do I recommend this book?

The workbook exercise gives clarity on how to start preparing to develop leadership quality.

Who is the book for?

For all the new mothers and the parents of school-going kids. The book is for all those highly ambitious parents who're:-

  • Thinking to build up leadership qualities in their kids 

  • Looking for some advice on from ‘where to start’ 

  • Looking for ‘what actions to take each day’. 

  • Bonus points for Parents also. They can perform the same exercise along with their kids to keep the memento high.

The book can be read within 2 hours but if you want to be benefitted then performing exercises every day is a must. Spending only 15 minutes can sharpen your kid’s skills.

At the end of the book, the author has given a few blank pages to maintain the record. There are many lessons to be learned for the parents/teachers too like patience, tolerance which we easily ignore sometimes. So, we can also remind our subconscious minds to follow the same for the betterment of our kids.

My favorite chapter from the book is “humility” on page no. 25 from the book. I also wish to see my princess growing as a “kind human being”.

Learnings from the book:

  • Humility makes a difference

  • A leader without a team is not a leader

  • Experience the magician hidden in your child

The best a parent should do now is to give a diary to your child and open up with the questions. Once they achieve their small goals. Now, it’s time to celebrate your child's achievement. Let’s make it an encouraging moment for him/her. So, he/she can cherish it for their lifetime.

Happy Parenting!
