I believe that leadership is about balance: the delicate balance of being strong and sure of yourself while willing to continually self-reflect and identify areas for personal growth; the balance of doing your research with careful planning while taking risks and stretching beyond the expected; the balance of maintaining close relationships with staff to maintain morale and a healthy culture while ensuring everyone knows they are there to do a job- and do it well!; the balance of leading people to go where they never thought they would go while not losing ground in the activity of the day!
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. – Eleanor Roosevelt
