Yuhong’s new blog talks about leadership. She quite accurately points out that in research, as in all creative work, leadership is a very important quality. I’ve struggled myself with the concept while I was filling out funding applications (yes, I’m still working on funding). People ask you to prove you are a leader… but what does it mean to be a leader?
Yuhong proposes the following definition:
- Always take into account everyone’s interest
- Be generous
- Have a vision
I like Yuhong’s definition!
