Leadership doesn’t require you to obtain a college degree or formal education. There are many leaders who never completed college. Some never completed grade school.
This is great news for those leaders who either dropped out of school or chose a different education path. You can lead without an education!
Does this excite you as much as it excites me? I hope it does. This means everyone has a chance to lead… If they so desire. Formal education isn’t required to lead.
