We had a question to ask: What does ‘leadership’ mean to UWA students and staff today? To find out, we went out on campus, with a camera, and simply asked them.
Here’s what they had to say.
What does Leadership mean today?
UWA is a leading university in Western Australia. So, what does leadership mean today?
Leadership is about the summarising and the strength of your whole team.
A leader needs to be able to project knowledge that they have onto other people.
A good leader and leadership means you understand the needs of others. Not just being able to, like, tell people what to do but, like, inspiring people as well.
Being able to get a bunch of people together and make them work together and achieve something amazing.
Q: Does a good leader have to be wise?
Definitely. A leader is always at the tipping point of any changes and that really does take intuition.
I think wisdom and leadership do go hand in hand. Leaders shouldn't just think of themselves as true all the time but be willing to question and learn from the things that they encounter.
Allowing the strength of the group to become the whole. As long as you're willing to learn and grow, by the end of it you will be wiser than you were before.
