Perception: In the Eye of the Beholder

By: Dr. Rodney Johnson--

 

Last Saturday, I participated in the first annual youth leadership kickoff conference at a local school district. LEAP…which is an acronym for Leadership, Education And Prosperity, offered to students the opportunity to hear and learn from presenters who spoke of leadership, what it takes to become a leader, and how leadership manifest itself in the youth of today. While I was only there as a vendor, when the time came to introduce my company and how we support educators and education, I couldn’t resist taking the opportunity to get on my soap-box. 

My experience has taught me that the characteristics of leadership are non-traditional. First of all, contrary to popular belief, Leaders are not born. LEADERS ARE MADE. Leaders are shaped and molded by their personal experiences, the optics of perspective, the events that shape personal history, and how they express their personal narrative.
