How to Shape Children into Future Business Leaders

Teach your kids how to work with money

The first step is to teach your child how to work with money.  Teach your child how to work for money, how to save money for something he or she wants and how to turn small cash into a lot more through business transactions.  You can start off by allowing your child to pay for the groceries at the cash register with your money or by giving them a bit of cash to buy a toy and see what they come up with for what they are given.

Teach your child how to work with people

Children are often shy and without development, they will remain shy.  By teaching your child how to work with people you are opening a lot of doors for your child because if they can work with people they can do just about anything in life. You should teach your child how to respect others and how compliments can get them a lot more out of life than treats or forcing.

Play money games

Money games like monopoly is a fantastic way to teach your children how the business world works and to teach them about unforeseen elements that can affect their financial capabilities.  You can start with money games as soon as your child is able to count and then work up from there.

Teach your child to negotiate

Instead of always saying ‘no’ to everything you cannot afford or don’t want your child to have, try to negotiate a bit.  Negotiation skills are one of the best skills your child can have in the business world.  Next time you are fighting about a new toy, ask your child what he or she is willing to do in exchange for that toy.

Have frequent business talks

Children are a lot cleverer than you might think.  You should try to stimulate an interest in business and entrepreneurship by talking about your company or other companies with your child.  Ask them how they think things work and what they would do if they were the boss.
