Become a Leader

Do you consider yourself a leader? Many people don't, simply because they don’t have a title or a leadership position in the groups or activities with which they are involved. However, leadership isn’t about fancy titles or being appointed to a particular position within a group or activity. Being able to motivate others and move a group forward in accomplishing its goals is much more valuable than having a title and accomplishing little else.

Here at the Center for Leadership and Involvement, this list describes what we see leaders do:

  • Leaders challenge the process
  • Leaders foster a shared vision
  • Leaders promote action and involvement
  • Leaders show the way
  • Leaders inspire passion
