Takeaways from Lessons in Leadership

We invited leader and consultant John Hinck to give students his advice on how to become effective leaders.  Part of the series “Navigating Your Future: BEST Careers in…," this event was hosted by BEST, OISE, and the Graduate School. These are the takeaways from some of the participants for the lessons and key elements of his workshop:

"Recognition of shared values and how to apply this to leadership positions."

"I think John forcing us to critically think about ourselves and our skill sets was useful."

"There was a lot of time spent discussing the definition of leadership - it was interesting to hear other perspectives."

"Defining a leader."

"Try to work in my passion/purpose into my future career."

"I liked the opportunity to speak and participate. I'm an introvert and being able to talk in a low-stance situation like this helped me build my confidence."
