Legacy Scholar Profile: Joshua Olorigebe

“Leadership is an action, not a position. It is an act of service and the choices I make must always be in the best interests of those I lead. As John Maxwell said, “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” People work best when and where they feel loved, valued, respected, and appreciated.”
