Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.
I am a believer and supporter that everyone can continue and be the person who can make a difference to simplify the life of others because in my opinion the only thing that has changed the world is Inspiring and determined Individuals. The Challenge today is to adopt more sustainable lifestyles. Each one of us has a responsibility to live peacefully without jeopardizing the natural resources. We need to act now- We need to share our knowledge- We need to formulate knowledge into wisdom – We need to move forward together and above all …We need to deliver the vision
