My hidden talent is leadership. For years, I didn’t consider myself a natural leader. Yet,  I was regularly put in leadership positions. In a way,  this was a good thing. It kept me humble and I didn’t develop a big ego. It helped I looked at how my Dad did leadership for guidance.

About 15 years ago, I decided to take leadership courses at several universities to learn different styles and theories of leadership. I also read about different leaders, both good and bad. I also recognized the biases of writers who would often let their biases heavily skew their opinions on who were good or bad leaders. This was steady across the political spectrum.

I pursued two B. S. degrees in management and leadership from different colleges, one of which was a Not-for-Profit Management. In an interesting twist, I was the last person to get this degree at the school. They never pushed the degree and stopped offering it the first year I began the degree. I had take all the courses they were offering that were degree specific my second semester. My adviser said as long as I took at least one course a year without a break, I could still get the degree. I had to remind her of this when I filed to graduate. I graduated 3 1/2 years after the program ended.

I took a Master’s degree in leadership at the other school and graduated 2 years after getting my second B. S.
