What does leadership mean to you?

Leadership is more than just the ability to lead people. It involves different attributes one must have as well as sacrifices one must give up.  It is the ability to not only lead but work as a team in order to achieve a certain goal.

What motivates you to be a leader at Etown  College?

I think my motivation comes from the idea that I can help make changes within the Elizabethtown College community that will help all.

What are some of the most important qualities you think a leader should have?

A leader must have self-awareness in that they know their strengths and limitation. Besides directing others, one must be able to direct themselves. They have to stay organized and aware of their surroundings. Finally, a leader that presents good leadership has to be able to create and have a vision that they use to help motivate others, as well as themselves, to accomplish a task.  

What advice would you give to someone going into a leadership position for the first time?

Experience is a key to success and failures are not avoidable nor should be taken as a sign of you not being a good leader. Take criticism as well as setbacks and view them as learning experiences and something you should grow upon. The book One Minute Manager by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson is one that the leadership team for OSA has read and I would suggest it as a way to evolve as a great leader. Turn good, into great.
