Leadership drives social change and builds communities. Effective leaders are important in every aspect of society.
When strong, compassionate servant leaders are at the helm – whether it's school principals working to improve student achievement, first ladies using their platform to solve challenges, or young leaders in a transitioning democracy – their efforts are far more sustainable.
