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 Leadership Development Facilitator 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 Assistant Coach with the women’s basketball team, Kait feels that her experience in sport has helped to shape her leadership beliefs today. Reflecting on her experience, Kait describes leadership as "creating opportunities for those around you to be best person they can be".
