Brie Larson as Captain Marvel
For many, this was a movie of triumph. Captain Marvel is the first female-led movie in the Marvel movie universe.
Not only was Captain Marvel a step forward for women in the comic book to movie world. Captain Marvel is also a great movie for leaders. There are many Reel Leadership lessons and quotes in Captain Marvel leaders will be able to apply to their work life.
These leaders often had to step up when no one else would. They would see a challenge and choose to move towards the challenge, rather than away from it. They knew someone had to take action and why not them?
How The Uneducated Are Often Seen
Sadly, those who don’t hold a formal degree are often looked down upon. The views of many seem to be that formally uneducated people lack drive and passion. They’re flakey and won’t stick around.
It’s always a fascinating journey to take a look at famous leaders and see who did or did not have a formal education. There are many such leaders and you may be surprised at who skipped out on college and a degree.
Today, we’re going to look at leaders from around the world who did not have a college education or dropped out before their graduation date. I’ll be honest, I was surprised by some of these.

Whether you dropped out of college, are an up-and-coming young leader, or an older employee transitioning into a leadership position, you may be freaking out about your level of education. Especially if you haven’t had formal leadership training.
Don’t let a lack of education stop you
For years, many businesses have been “requiring” team members to have a minimum level of education. You may see a business requiring an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. And it may discourage you when you realize you don’t have the education requuired for the leadership position.
