Second, how does one separate the title from the behavior required for such a role? Many fundamental components are involved when it comes to what should be at the forefront of a successful leader’s mind. Listen as the team digs deeper into what the thought process should look like. Lastly, how do you teach and reinforce leadership qualities in others? As facilitators, the cast discusses how High 5 Adventure currently teaches students about leadership.
