10 Principles of Twenty-First Century Leadership
From: Strock, J. (2019). Serve to lead 2.0: 21st century leaders manual. Serve to Lead Group https://servetolead.org
- “Everybody can lead, because anyone can serve.
- The most valuable resource of any enterprise is its people.
- We are in transition from a transaction-based world to a relationship-based world.
- Leadership is a relationship between empowered, consenting adults.
- Leadership is a dynamic relationship.
- There is no universal leadership style.
- Leadership roles are converging.
- A leader’s unique task is to imagine and advance a vision.
- Love is the highest level of leadership relationship.
- Character is a competitive advantage (p.67-68).”

- Look in your cabinets and see what you already have. Then use those items to help make out meals for the rest of the week. Do this as a family. The more input everyone gives, the more they will enjoy the meals. When planning meals, remember to try and include all five food groups. Fruits, Dairy, Protein, Grains and Vegetables.
- Include meals that you can combine food groups. Look up easy recipes online. Soup and stews are a great way to add more vegetables and grains while using less meat proteins which are expensive. If your family struggles with eating dairy and fruits, put low-fat yogurt and a can of fruit in the mixer, then freeze for a cold treat.
- Before going to the grocery ALWAYS make out your grocery list and stick to it. Stay out of aisles that don’t contain items on your list. If your budget allows, add ONE item that your family loves that you haven’t had for a while.
- Check for sales and coupons online and in the paper.
- Make meals a positive time together. Encourage everyone to help and enjoy this time together.

Two weeks ago, we launched a Qualtrics survey to collect contact information about local food producers. While we are updating the site with more local farms daily, the site is live and can be used as a resource by anyone looking to purchase local food. You can visit the site at https://u.osu.edu/localfoodproducers/. The survey link is also available on the Local Food Producers Directory home page if you would like to add your farm to the list.
Search for new and different projects to take. Learn all about projects, what other people think of it, and view sample pages. Rate a project you have already taken and share your feedback.
Please take time to rate the projects you have taken! This will give feedback to 4-H Educators as they continue to update and create new projects. Do all this at: www.ohio4h.org/projectcentral
