This year I learned more about my leadership style and how to be flexible when things don’t go as planned. I also learned more about what characteristics make a good leader. I know now that I am more of a quiet, solutions based leader and that means I need to be more aware of my “people” skills because leaders don’t work in a bubble and teamwork is crucial to accomplish goals. While COVID-19 certainly made this year challenging and created new obstacles my team and I were able to adapt to the situation and still accomplish our project goal to help DC students. Our ability to roll with changes helped us be successful and had we been rigidly committed to a plan we would not have been able to achieve our objective and ease the burden of COVID on DC’s education system.
