Building a personal “brand” instead of being authentic and doing the job as prescribed, the leader does what they can to make themselves look important and in

position for advancement. This style of leadership is superficial and causes others to think someone is something they are really not. To this point in my life I have found myself most comfortable in the position most like an executive officer.

    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.
