    What does Leadership Mean to You?

    Charlotte Miller poses this question in a compelling NSSLHA blog entitled "Fight the Status Quo- Be a Diverse Leader".  She also asks us why there are a lower rate of minority individuals in high-profile leadership positions?  And gives thoughts regarding how to change this?  What are some compelling thoughts to engage in leadership positions? What changes would you like to see? Share your thoughts. We would love to hear them.

    As always, your S.T.E.P. Coaches are here to support you. Please do not reply to all with specific questions. Send a message to and we will get back to you.

    I just finished James Comey's book, A Higher Loyalty.  It's a wonderful read on the qualities that make up a good leader.  The book is not a political read, but a reflection of the people who have influenced him and his leadership skills.

    A good leader admits that they made a mistake.  They listen and think outside the box.  They advocate for their client.

    This is a great question. I had to think about. Here is my answer: A good leader is someone who walks alongside his or her staff/mentees/colleagues, collaborates equally and respects all information gained through communication. He or she asks good questions to gain information to shape and develop outcomes. A good leader creates a dynamic relationship that infuses positive responsiveness throughout any process, project or endeavor. He or she is able to respectfully have difficult conversations when necessary and create resolutions to convicts when possible.
