For Participants

 LEAD is important because it teaches the professionalized, soft skills that you are oftentimes asked to use without being told how to use them.

For instance: you may be asked to chair a committee and given a task to complete, but you’re not taught that the success of that project unless you can get that committee to work together.

LEAD unpacks what those skills are, and teaches you how to use them in collaborative settings
