Early on in my professional career, I went through a rigorous leadership development training workshop. After the assessments, there was a final interview where all participants received feedback based on our performance in the workshop. The main feedback I received was that I "need to learn to empower and trust my team". I was surprised to hear this feedback and responded back to the interviewer stating that "when my team comes to me with a problem, I provide them with a solution" and the epiphany hit me like a wave. Leadership is not about having all of the answers; it's about inspiring the team to be creative and create solutions together. 

This was merely one example of how collectively, we need to create more opportunities to develop leadership skills - the soft skills. As I reflect on my academic days, the majority of courses were focused on hard skills, rather than a leadership development course. We recognize the opportunity to build more leaders - build more connected relationships.
