- Do you have a favorite quote pertaining to your leadership style or what you strive to embody? My favorite quote pertaining to my leadership style would be “Great leaders don’t set out to be a leader…they set out to make a difference. Its never about the role – always about the goal” Being a leader means that you are in a role where people are looking at you to make the change. One thing I always like to tell my friends would be that don’t look at what I’ve achieved and what I’m doing look at the goal; anyone can achieve this goal you just have to put your mind to it.
- What has been the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome in your career? The biggest obstacle I have had to overcome in my career was gaining the confidence in myself to take on a supervisor role. Being a young adult and stepping into a leadership role was very scary for me as I was unsure if people would take me seriously or understand my point of views. Over this past year in my leadership role I have been able to gain confidence in myself allowing me to have success in my role.
- What is the difference between managing and leading? As Peter Drucker once said “Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things” Management is someone who is telling others what to do and how to do it right. A leader is someone who is teaching others the right things to do and how to do them so they can become leaders themselves.
