Leadership Insights

Learning to lead is a lifelong process. By earning a degree, you substantially increase your earning power – and also the strong likelihood that you will be asked to lead others. A recent survey of industry leaders shows a significant skills gap in leadership skills such as leading others, problem solving, and communication.[1]

Many students today are not interested in the traditional view of leadership in a large organization because it seems to place too much emphasis on profits and production. Working to create social change, develop people, and contribute to society are more attractive goals to many students. Teams want leadership that is less interested in authority or power, and more interested in good judgement and empowerment.

This page offers you leadership vision statements from students, alumni, faculty, and staff at the University of Windsor.

We hope you find inspiration here to fuel and energize your own leadership journey.
