Leadership definition: Leadership can take so many different forms, yet all these forms boil down to three intuitive and essential actions. Knowing, motivating and doing. Leaders must have a general idea of what is needed, know how to focus their resources and people to accomplish their unique goal, and lastly leaders must have the ability to act and execute task. With this and a little bit of passion anyone can become a leader.
Favorite Thing: My favorite thing at Scranton is the awesome education, the teachers and friends I met here, and unlimited smoothies on the weekends.

Definition of leadership: Leadership is the ability to guide and motivate a group towards a common goal or purpose. Leadership engages a learning process for both the leader and the group, as they learn how to tone the strengths of the group while also improving the weaknesses. A leader is passionate and determined in his/her endeavors and inspires others to proceed with an equal amount of passion and enthusiasm. Leaders have the ability to focus their own strengths and decisions toward the betterment of the group. Leadership is defined by passion, communication, determination, dedication, and engagement.Favorite thing at Scranton: The close-knit community, the opportunities to get involved and meet new people, and the friendships I've made here.
