Leadership is something that anyone can display and is certainly not tied to a specific position or title. Through the years I have spent in the system I have worked with leaders at every level. Teammates often play a large role in leading a team; it is certainly a key to success.
The idea was simple - create an innovative competition that is designed by young leaders for young leaders. That's what the Saskatchewan Young Leaders committee discussed earlier this year. We were determined that this could be the start of something good for our credit union system.
There are many people that I look up to and have contributed to my success. In some cases the mentor relationship was easy to see and other times it just seems to happen. Someone takes you under their wing and helps you to see more of your potential. I feel that leaders surround themselves with other great people that they know can be counted on to aide their success.
