WHAT MAKES A GREAT LEADER?

Maya Naidu: Co-President

Hi, I’m Maya, the other co-president of Impact SFU! 

I think being empathetic and flexible are two essential characteristics of a good leader. As a leader, you want to ensure your whole team feels valued, understood, and satisfied. When challenges arise, you have to adapt calmly without making it a huge deal. The better your team feels, the better your team can achieve their goals!


Shay Hayashi: Co-President

 Hey! I’m Shay and I am the co-president of Impact SFU. I think confidence and self-awareness makes someone a great leader. Someone who is confident will respect others and in turn gain the respect of others. No one is all-knowing so it's always humbling to be aware of your own strengths and weaknesses and to continue to improve your weaknesses by learning from others! If you are nervous about joining a club your first year, try going into it with the intention of just making one friend. It'll definitely take the pressure off yourself to be a socialite. I hope you consider joining our team and have a great semester!

 Hey! I’m Lara, and I am the Secretary/VP Programming for Impact SFU. I believe a great leader is someone who is also a lifelong learner. A great leader sees missteps as opportunities, and can always learn something from others.
