What do you admire in a leader or mentor? Do you have someone who you consider a strong mentor or leader within your life?
I admire leaders who are able to inspire others, leaders who are able to see the potential in others and nurture them to be their best selves. I admire leaders who realize that their position or influence is not to serve their selfish interest, but to serve others. I admire leaders who are able to see beyond the obstacles to the prize that lies beyond it. Such leaders are not very common.
