About Christine Comaford (@Comaford)
Kenyan President Mwai Kibaiki once said, “leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed.” These words inspired Christine Comaford. She believes we create cultures of low accountability but also believes great leaders can drastically increase the collective accountability and make a positive impact on those they reach.
About Dr. Katherine Jones (@Katherine_Jones)
Katherine believes that “the real measure of a leader is in his or her followers. Leadership is vested in a person by the followers, not ‘assigned’ to an individual. Leadership isn’t in a title – it is in the ability to inspire and to motivate.” In Katherine’s opinion the three key factors for leadership success are creating and communicating a vision, gaining support, and execution.
About Carmen O’Shea (@CarmenOshea)
Carmen feels that people surrounding and supporting a leader is the crucial aspect of leadership as she believes that “my greatest professional accomplishment lies in the success of the individuals on my team.” Carmen thinks that “a seemingly small leadership act such as mentoring or believing in someone enough to support them for a role, can have far-reaching repercussions as those people in turn become more effective employees and leaders in ways that you may not have predicted.”
