Rethinking Leadership Beyond a Buzzword
Nhu Trieu

Leadership is all the buzz nowadays. We see so many media pieces on what makes a great leader and what they have accomplished, yet we fail to recognize the everyday grass-root leadership that happens within our communities, and more importantly, that happens without fanfare. How can we push the paradigm that leaders are special, remarkable, rare people so that everyone can realize that each one of us can be a leader? Join this discussion on unconventional leadership and challenge your paradigm.
