What is the most important thing you have learned from Rebecca about leadership?

Sharon Radd
You are my #1 Role Model when it comes to thinking about leadership. In every interaction, you show compassion and warmth while at the same time you demonstrate and expect high standards.

Your leadership has shaped the program in both tactical and relational ways, and I'm extremely proud to be a part of such a great endeavor. Further, I am a much better leader and teacher because of these four years I have had working with and for you. I will always be grateful for this time and opportunity with you, and will do my very best to continue to build on your legacy.

With much love and admiration,
That it is, at its most authentic point, something that grows from within. Not in any kind of vacuum, and the growth has to be nurtured with ideas and ethics and a sense of place - not a geographical place, but our own place within the community or the company or the university we serve.
