“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” - Ronald Reagan

The CLL has taught me how important leadership development is not only professionally, but also in everyday life. Leadership is valuable to society in a unique way that enhances strengths while encouraging advancement of the self as well as in others. The CLL has opened my eyes to the idea that leadership can mean something different to everyone. This is what inspired me to use what I have learned to the best of my ability and find my own way of truly making an impact in my life and others’.
