But in general, great leadership compromises many combined traits and skillsets to make an long-lasting impact that helps secure a vision or mission. It’s never to early to start practicing. Budding entrepreneurs can build professional skills while still in college with a number of activities. Here are six ways you can build your leadership skills while still in college: 
  3. 3. 1. Organize and Lead Community Projects Organize and lead a community project to help you focus on your leadership goals while supporting causes for which you’re passionate. Find a community project and organization where you can help organize and support their efforts. This way you can gain the experience to plan, organize, and actualize a major event without taking all of your time during the semester.
  4. 4. 2. Run for Student Government A student government position could help leverage your leadership abilities. Although many students set their sights on becoming the student body president, students can build their leadership capabilities in different student government roles. Consider running for a smaller position in our residence hall, a on-campus cultural organization, or become a representative of your fraternity or sorority! 
  5. 5. 3. Join Engaging Clubs Strong leadership can be developed through teamwork. While in college, take advantage of the opportunities you have to join clubs where you can meet people interested in the same hobbies. For example, you could join a entrepreneurship club.
  6. 6. 4. Find a Campus Job focusing on Student Leadership If you want to learn how to become a leader from the sidelines, consider working in a campus office that supports student leadership efforts. Offices like Residence Life or the Department of Student Activities are great places to learn what you need to know about leadership initiatives, events, and skills. 
  7. 7. 5. Take Leadership Courses Your college most likely offers some sort of leadership course. It could either be a for-credit class in the business school or a class just where you can learn skills. Learning formal leadership skills with the support of a teacher and classmates can give you the inspiration to take on a leadership role outside of the classroom!
  8. 8. 6. Connect with Professors Working with a professor on research or a project can offer many opportunities. You can highlight your will to learn and your intellectual abilities. Showcasing your determination and desire for a project and following-through with it can help building the skills you need to become a leader.

It may take time to build your leadership skills, but pushing yourself to take on responsibilities helps many people get out of their comfort zones. Using these tips can allow your leadership capabilities to blossom.
