Chad’s Answer

Leadership can take on many meanings and forms, depending on the circumstances. In fact, I think it's important to point out that you can illustrate leadership qualities without ever being formally responsible for supervising the performance of others.

My general perspective on Leadership is that everyone has an opportunity to showcase it in different forms throughout their lifetime - both formally and informally. If your question is with respect to listing out the times that you've shown leadership in the past, as part of a job application or resume building activity, I would encourage you to think about the following:

- Are there times that you've organized or helped plan and deliver an event for your school? (a party, a dance, a student organization or event)
- Have you organized or help coach in local sports club or team?
- Have you taken on responsibility for helping to care for other family members (younger or older)?
- Have you helped lead or organize events for your local town or community, or a local religious organization?

Any time you help bring people together to accomplish something, or take on responsibility to get something done (even if you're the only one involved) - that's a form of leadership.

Jaylon in my current role I lead a team of recruiters for the Midwest which affords me the opportunity to constantly think of how to help the team to grow.

Jaylon,

I would encourage you to think about school projects, team activities, extracurricular opportunities where perhaps you played a dominant role in a decision or assisted a peer or teammate in a way that developed your leadership skills. Sometimes thinking back to a situation may enable you to get a different perspective of it.

Simeon’s Answer

Most of my leadership experiences come from religious settings where I've lead lessons, preached, taught lesson series, and led specific Sunday school groups. In work settings, I've only been a supervisor in one capacity, so I can't speak to that as much.
