"A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves." - Lao Tzu

My form of leadership involves knowing your strengths, knowing your teammates’ strengths, and utilizing everyone’s collective skills to accomplish a greater goal. To be a leader, you do not need a title; you need to be willing to serve others and help motivate them to rise to a challenge. When I work with a team, I try to learn and recognize each person’s unique abilities. Before joining the Center for Leadership Learning, I did not know that this trait of mine was a strength called “individualization” and that I can focus on honing this talent to help become a better leader. I hope to use this strength to help other students identify their unique strengths and mentor them in their journey to practice leadership in their everyday lives.
