What does leadership mean to you?   Leadership is about helping others and yourself toward a common goal, or a goal for the betterment of the group as a whole.  It is about making the hard choices and not picking the easier path as an escape route.  Leadership is about a group or team, not an individual.

What motivates you to be a leader at Etown College? What motivates me to be a leader at E-town is my will to help people.  I want to be of assistance to those that need it.

What are some of the most important qualities you think a leader should have?  A leader needs to listen.  Being the leader does not mean that person is the best at all things.  Utilizing the strengths of the group and finding a way to meld those strengths into a single working unit is also a skill all leaders need to have.

What advice would you give to someone going into a leadership position for the first time? I would advise any first time leaders to get to know anyone you are leading.  Teamwork is built on trust, and the better you and your group know each other the better you will perform together regardless of the task at hand.
