When I first joined the CLL last year, I really didn’t know much about leadership aside from a few textbook definitions. I’d learned about it before, but only in abstract terms that I couldn’t connect to real life. What I found in the CLL was exactly what I needed - not only the concrete skill-building that is so essential for leadership, but also a welcoming community that was ready to encourage me, provide feedback, and help me grow. As a result, I’ve learned how to both lead with my own unique style as well as support the leadership of others. With the CLL, I’m turning my leadership goals into reality.
