“Throughout my life, I have been inspiring individuals to become a voice in their community and create change. While I believed my leadership skills were well tuned, I am a lifelong learner and wanted to expand my knowledge on leadership development. My problem was that I was newly married, welcomed my son into the world and started a new job. No way was I going to have the time needed to go back to school.
This is where my thinking all changed. I started to research graduate programs, learning toward an MBA because that is what I was told to get to work in the business community. While conducting my research on graduate schools and programs, I discovered a school in Nebraska named Bellevue University that had an interesting degree in Leadership.
My degree opened my eyes to new and exciting leadership development skills. I took these skills and started my own organization working with individuals to develop strong leadership skills. My passion is to make positive change in the world by developing individuals to change their own community.
Regardless of your aspirations, becoming a better leader is sure to pave the way. To become a great leader, a person needs to utilize all the resources available to expand their knowledge. Leadership lessons are all around us and can be learned from watching movies, reading books and from our peers.
