What is our Leadership Philosophy?<br />We believe: <br />Leadership has many definitions. <br />All students can exercise leadership, regardless of title or position in an organization, as formal position alone does not determine influence. <br />Leadership is an on-going process that is continuously explored, evaluated, and evolving.<br /> Leadership involves the ability to influence and inspire others. <br /> Leadership never happens alone: it is a two-sided relationship between the leader and those being led. <br /> Leadership involves taking initiative and responsibility to do something that enhances the experience of oneself and others. <br /> Leadership involves hearing and respecting the voices of everyone, cultural understanding, and citizenship.<br /></li> <li> 8.
