The following blog was written by a student that attended one of my Leadership Labs. The writing was in response to the question “How would you define leadership?”
What I think about leadership is I think it’s about being successful and accomplishing a common goal with a team or group. I think that leadership is very important to make a good team, without proper leadership it is hard to accomplish the task that has been set before you. Without leadership, we would be lost and without direction, just like we would be without God. He leads us in the right direction and tried to put us on the path to success. He leads us to do great things that would be hard to accomplish without his great leadership. He is the best example of leadership because he ultimately is the one that leads everyone to the glory of his amazing presence in heaven. Leadership isn’t just about being there and leading your team because without the love and passion for something there’s really no point in doing it at all, so a good leader is passionate, loving, kind, helpful, and always agreeable. But over all, leadership is a team effort because without your team there’s no one to lead and be successful with, and that is my definition of leadership.
