8 Inspiring Leadership Quotes on Planting Seeds of Social Change

From a recent LinkedIn post of Dr. Artika Tyner, Assistant Professor (Public Policy/Leadership) at University of St. Thomas College of Education, Leadership and Counseling. May 7, 2015 .

Leadership Quotes: Planting Seeds of Social Change

“A recent visit to Hawai’i reminded me that the true essence of leadership is interconnectedness. This is a focus on building a shared vision for the future which promotes equity and justice. I found myself walking along Banyan Way to finally have a glimpse of a Banyan tree. I had researched the history of the Banyan tree for a number of years and this was my first opportunity to witness this powerful image. This tree serves as a metaphor for leadership rooted in community engagement which flourishes through strategic partnerships.”
