Leadership is simply the ability to influence someone into action. These actions can be for positive reasons or negative reasons. Our history is full of both! We are asking you to apply the qualities of good leadership for good reasons that include the following character traits: integrity, accountability, empathy, humility, resilience, vision, and positivity. Managing people is not the same as leading people. Managing is about persuading people to do things they do not want to do, compared to leadership which is about inspiring people to do things they never thought they could. Leadership is about being honest and building genuine relationships with integrity, trust and respect.
