I have come across many influential people and events, both good and bad, along the way that have shaped my values and leadership style.Leaders make there own path and leave a trail. “Your path may not be easy and rosy but let defeats turn into stepping stone to success.” Follow my journey on the yellow brick road…

  19. End of Path I always thought leadership meant having to be outspoken and empowering over all. Turns out, it is about knowing your strengths and how to utilize them to accomplish a common task with the support from others. From the leadership minor, I have established my own set of strengths, weaknesses, skills, and leadership style that suit me best. I have continued to challenge myself in utilizing them for all that I am involved in. I have gained the confidence, self esteem, enthusiasm, and knowledge to lead effectively as a servant leader. “Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream, Really do come true.”
