When I realized that my main character, Ari Fish, loved the presidents and was inspired by them, I spent a lot of time reading speeches and quotes by our country’s leaders. Since then, I have thought a lot about leadership–and talked to a lot of kids about it, too. Right now, we are encouraged to pursue leadership as a way of self-validation. Promotions come with leadership. But not everyone needs to be a leader to be a great human being.
What makes a great leader?
What do we look for in our leaders?
How can we pay it forward every day?
