" The Heart of A Leader"

This quarter I was assigned to read "The Heart of A Leader", it was a good little book on leadership skills, and good quotes that was can use in ever day life, they really helped think, and change my views from different perspectives.

There were five lessons that I found to be very helpful in leadership, the first lesson I learned was put in a quote stated, "People who produce good results feel good about themselves".

It is good to learn from your mistakes and not always put yourself down. This is good, because council here's, "No", a lot, so this will be helpful.

The third lesson I chose was "None of us is as smart as all of us". I love this one, in council it will help us realize that working together we can get a lot more accomplished; we can be so much more successful and smarter if we work together as a team. When we work by ourselves the job is only half done, but coming together will really help us accomplish our goals this year.
