Below is an explanation of each of the categories.
Article – Provides a longer form breakdown of topics for consideration and conversation.
General Leadership – Speaks to the tenets and discipline of leadership overall.

It is for the students to understand that they don’t need wait to develop and sharpen their own leadership strengths.
In The Middle – These posts describe topics where there are two view points covered and ask the reader to look at each side to determine how each side views the issue at hand.
