Leadership is ever-changing because it is both objective and subjective. Those who are able to balance both, exemplify a true leader. To lead is to provide direction without getting lost yourself and recognizing that true leadership is translating a vision that is turned into reality. Leadership, in its simplest terms, is maintaining balance while promoting a higher standard.

"Leadership to me means going out of your comfort zone to make those around you better. Leadership is doing all the little things extraordinarily and holding everyone on your team accountable and making sure they pull their own weight." -Christian Wilkins
"A leader needs to set that firm goal of this is where we are going, this is what it looks like to get there, and this is how each person's role is going to come together to get towards that goal and communicating that." -Jordan Plumblee

The role of a leader is to develop, deliver, and sustain a message to their followers. This message must provide direction, support, motivation, and inspiration to achieve a common goal (Pratt, 2017). Jordan exemplified a direct reflection of this through his insight on leadership goals, values, and guidance.

"Leadership is being a good servant because the best leaders are the ones who understand they're serving the ones who work under them." -Todd Green
