You may have a vision for your organization and a philosophy for how it should be structured or operated. Those are important things to have, but at some point it will likely be put into opposition, either with your E-Board, club members or others. One of the hardest things to do as a leader is realizing the extent to which you should be fighting for what you believe in and at what point it may be necessary to make concessions. Even if you believe in your idea, continuing to fight everyone can begin to negatively affect your RSO and its members. Truly being a great leader means doing what’s best for your RSO and members; and doing that may require compromising a specific vision or idea.
