Our Philosophy

We believe leadership is a process of people working together toward common goals that does not require formal authority or position and can be practiced by anyone interested in making a difference in his/her family, workplace, and community.

The development of leadership competency is a process of discovering one’s own leadership potential as well as the potential of others. It requires personal initiative and an understanding of one’s passions, motivations, strengths, limitations, and personal values. This also includes an understanding of the ethical nature of leadership as it relates to one’s character and a commitment to act with trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. This process of self-discovery is ongoing and requires a commitment to lifelong learning through getting involved, reflecting on the experience, and stretching oneself to meet new challenges.
