Earn Trust of Others Leaders are sincerely open-minded, genuinely listen, and are willing to examine their strongest convictions with humility.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
