Most of us aspire to be great leaders one day, inspiring change and making an impact on those around ​you. In her talk, Kait Asquini ​encourages the audience to make this a reality. She ​suggests that​ leadership is accessible to everyone,​ equipping the audience with simple and practical tools to lead ​in their everyday lives.

You don’t need to be a ​leader​ by title to make an impact ​within your community. This is an ideal that Kait Asquini has implemented in her work as ​the L​eadership ​D​evelopment ​F​acilitator for Ryerson University. At TEDxRyersonU 2015, Kait touches on what it means to lead in a community on a micro level. In a local sense, she believes leadership is accessible to everyone. There has been a shift in the definition and the concept of ‘one size fits all’ leadership is no longer accurate. She advocates that ​the ability to lead is something we are all capable of, but we must ​first ​​recognize and embrace opportunities to lead in our every days lives. As an​​ ​A​ssistant ​C​oach ​with ​the women’s basketball team, Kait feels that​ her experience in sport has helped to shape her leadership belief​s today. ​Reflecting on her experience, Kait describes leadership as ​"​creating opportunities for th​ose around you to be best person they can be​"​.
