Who has taught you something about leadership?

Jacqueline Kirby has taught me that being you is okay. You don't have to be something your not, you don't have to be this ultimate being to be a leader. Leadership comes through action and doing. People will remember you for the things you did or do for them because you impacted their life one way or another. Always be you because there are plenty people in the world that will appreciate you for it.
