To me, leadership is the ability to inspire people to think big and reach for the stars. Leadership includes knowing what needs to get done, making plans to meet objectives, and accomplishing set goals- whatever they be. Leadership is never a popularity contest, but more of an effort to inspire others to improve upon the status quo.
Carla J. Keegan has been a Girl Scout everywhere. Having attended eight schools in twelve years and in three different countries, Girl Scouts was a bit of home away from home. During her time in Girl Scouting Keegan received her First Class Bar, the highest award in Girl Scouting from 1963-1982.To receive this honor a Cadette Girl Scout had to earn several badges and meet four challenges. Each challenge was a selected real-life situation designed to test a girl’s ability to use her knowledge and skill based on Girl Scout ideals and values. Girl Scouts helped Carla Keegan believe in herself and adapt to embrace and meet the challenge of change. Keegan is excited to commemorate 100 years of Girl Scouting and offers the following advice for girls: Be decisive. Set high standards and lofty goads; don’t be afraid to take risks, and just go for it! It’s better to make decisions that turn out wrong than to never make a decision at all. After all, mistakes are how we learn, we grow- you should never be afraid of making a mistake. Don’t let others walk all over you, or hinder the accomplishments of a dream.
