Leadership and Development Program
Crystal Ling - "...it is evident that some of the more pertinent qualifications of a leader includes honesty, competence, knowledge, technical skills, creativity, patience, a future-oriented mindset, and the ability to inspire others. Leaders who embody and use these qualities to motivate a group to accomplish goals epitomize the character of a great leader."
Lauren Belzer - Leadership can be defined many different ways. People, situations, and values all modify each term. Personally defined, it is the ability to take initiative within a group
Gilbert Worotikan- "Proper leadership also proves that a person has qualities that show that a person is stern and in charge while showing that he or she is humane and shows flaws but overpowers them with his or her strengths."
Caitlin Weisz - "Leadership is a quality, not a title." Only Viewable Within the Stony Brook Community
Elizabeth R. Zelen - "In order to grow into a successful leader I now realize that it is extremely important to develop the personal self-assurance, motivational impact, and internal vision to propel others to work together to accomplish a collective goal. However, as a true leader, you must not only identify the strengths and weaknesses of your teammates, but also uncover the different traits that determine how you will lead."
Serafima Norova - Most importantly, a leader should know when to give credit or take blame.
Kyle Koleda - I have learned that the credibility factor in a leader is tremendous in keeping a honest and motivated work force. If the leader is not credible in their statements, then the team may not trust them in their efforts and can veer off the track towards the team set goal.
