companies have failed to cultivate the necessary leaders for their business ([email protected], 2013). The odds that a company will develop their employees’ into great leaders is very unlikely ([email protected], 2013). Even with companies investing so much money in leadership development, the leadership gap is widening ([email protected], 2013). What Are Successful Leaders Doing? Successful leaders are anticipating changes in the market ([email protected], 2013). They are not just keeping their heads down, they are looking around corners for innovative ways to stay ahead of the competition ([email protected], 2013). They are looking to shape the future, not just reacting to it ([email protected], 2013). Great leaders are able to work with very diverse groups of people ([email protected], 2013). Despite the biological and cultural differences, great leaders are able to connect with people and gain enough trust from them to cooperate in achieving a goal ([email protected], 2013). Successful leaders understand that the more diverse their network is, the greater advantage they have in developing solutions because people from different backgrounds think differently ([email protected], 2013). Great leaders are willing to abandon business practices that made them successful in the past ([email protected], 2013). They are not willing to go along to get along ([email protected], 2013). They dare to be different ([email protected], 2013). Great leaders are not talkers of taking risk, they are doers of taking risks ([email protected], 2013).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
