What Does Leadership Even Mean?

Lyndon Valicenti

The more I explore the concept of leadership, the more nuanced it becomes. I hope to dive into its many facets and elements over time in this weekly blog. For today, let’s celebrate what 14 current high school students came up with when asked: What does leadership even mean?

In this first session of Foresight Prep, we are honored to engage with 14 of the brightest, most passionate, and woke high schoolers there may have ever been. As part of their time with us, we explore the concept of leadership and its many forms. To kick things off we asked them to reflect on leaders in their lives and describe the top five important characteristics of leadership, they collectively came up with the following list:

  • Resilient/Perserverant
  • Inclusive
  • Adaptive
  • Assertive/Confident
  • Cooperative

An insightful start to this discussion!
