My personal definition of leadership

Leadership applies to everyone. It means taking personal responsibility for continually growing one’s ability to inspire others to work toward a common goal.

He is eager to learn about the thought process of hospital leaders and how a health system works. Mr. Williams considers himself to be a creative, yet strategic thinker who is passionate about innovation and diabetes.

My personal definition of leadership

Eric defines leadership as a person, or a group of people having the ability to be selfless, life-long learners. He stated “By focusing on the development of others, leaders are visionaries who encourage people to be better than they were yesterday.”
