not necessary for continuity or anything, but the two blogs together work to paint a bigger picture that
I wouldn’t want you to have just half of. So, check that blog out. The first one was about my experience
with leadership, but this one will be the other side of the coin, the actual data about leadership and its
effects. You know its effects on me, but now I’ll try to show the effects of leadership in general.
paste the Wikipedia article, though. Leadership would simply be taking charge and stepping up into
command, but I’m not talking about a spontaneous leadership role where you organize people here and
there. I’m talking about organized leadership organizations like the president of the student body or the
captain of a sports team. Of course, I’m not frowning upon spontaneous leadership. Spontaneous
leadership is usually more of a personality trait, therefore it’s a result, not a cause of change in your

makes sense that leaders have higher positions. They’re already used to leading people and already
have experience over people who weren’t leaders.
more appealing to college. This ties into their second point about success. If leadership gets students
into better jobs, why should it not get them into better colleges? Leadership is already giving students
more opportunities. It gives students such a leg up on the competition.
students so strongly, here it is now. Leadership is so easy to find and it teaches students such valuable
skills. Being a leader can make them more confident, have better work habits, and better grades. Not

better jobs. Leadership is such a great opportunity and it can really secure a student’s life.
