Leadership can be equated to a roller coaster ride. It has its exhilarating moments, scary portions, abrupt twist and turns, yet overall, the entire experience is worth the thrill. It is a leader’s role to guide a group to reach its goals, even if that journey is filled with ups and downs; however, in the end once you reach that rewarding goal, that bittersweet journey was unquestionably worth it. A leader should be someone willing to learn, take initiative, inspire others, improve, and most importantly, work. Essentially, with the right intentions, anybody can be a good leader.
