What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘leadership’? If you’ve ever been to an assessment day for a graduate job or watched an episode of The Apprentice, your view of leadership might be that it’s about someone taking charge. A charming but authoritative person usually comes to mind. However, this view of leadership fails to account for the true diversity of leaders. Sometimes leadership isn’t so loud.

Her colleagues praise her for being great at recruiting and motivating strong leaders. She also has a way with inspiring confidence in those who work for her.
