Everyone wants to be a leader, but being a leader is not as easy as many young adults think. Just because someone might be a boss or a manager doesn’t mean that person is a leader. And being a leader doesn’t provide a license to do whatever comes to mind. Even presidents of companies have bosses they need to obey. These bosses may include customers, members of governing boards, and shareholders. In our Rainmakers Internship Preparation Program, students will get ample opportunity to hone leadership skills.
More importantly, students will learn about and practice the science and art of ‘followship.’ Being a good follower can actually be harder than being a leader, but it’s what most workers will be doing for most of their working life.
