This week my definition of leadership comes from real life experience in our Social Change group project. The key word being patience... With my group of three there has been communication between two of us but not the third. The emails exchanged also have been difficult with people understanding what expect of each other. I think patience is key to leadership and key in this situation in order to make the group function and work together. We all need to understand each other's point of view and continue to stay calm and work well together in order to get the project done and done well.

This week in our course readings, I found the that my defintion of leadership was shifted and had some new facts added. Empathy is much needed when it comes to leading a group of different cultures and ideas. It is needed for everyone to understand that people are different and situations are different in everyone's lives. Not everyone has to have the same beliefs in a team, but they do need to respect others ideas, beliefs, and religions, in order to have a successful team.
This week my emerging definition of Leadership has continued to grow. Leadership is taking a group of people with different cultures, races, sexes, ages, etc. and forming a coalition that communicates and that acts as one voice. This is needed throughout any business or organization you work for/in.
