Donald shared his definition of leadership “My definition of a leader is someone who is able to take feedback as well as give it. A leader is not afraid to take risk, and always believes in a positive outcome. A leader should be poised, honest, trustworthy, and reliable, for he is often the voice and face of any organization or group.”
