September 20, 2019 — At the Effective Leadership Academy, we explain to students that leadership has nothing to do with a title and everything to do with character.
In one of our programs, a student met all of the traditional academic checkpoints, but she lacked confidence. We noticed a turning point when she learned about the strengths and weaknesses of her personality. She used this newfound realization to her advantage.
At the program’s final networking event, she spoke seamlessly to five business professionals and created authentic connections. The impact from our program was evident, and the growth that this student experienced during a week was fantastic, but not unusual.
