We asked ourselves what makes a great leader. Is it the ability to inspire and motivate others, to lead by example, creativity, or to take control of tasks and complete them? I find that leaders come in many shapes and sizes and have different character traits. Our goal is to find people that are driven to help make the world a better place, and can take ideas and run with them! We want to help you understand your skillset and with practical guidance build you into a future leader.
