Thinking on Leadership, from Martin Gibson

People say Leaders are born not made but I disagree. Leadership can and should be taught. Teaching intelligent young people in a multi cultural environment is sowing seeds on fertile ground and not just seeds of a single crop. Seeds that will bloom and flourish in many ways. It will empower the students of the ASfYL to get involved in making a difference and it does not matter how small the cause or idea. A team initially just needs two people and from that it will grow to fit the size of the issue. Anyone who attends our course will want to create a team – perhaps to save the world but more likely to help or entertain people and make lives more fulfilling. Changing the world can come later when our young leaders get together in the future after a few years of preparing their skills.
