Leadership Questions [#permalink] New post 26 Sep 2006, 11:04
After reading about the importance of demonstrating leadership in and out of work, I had some questions about leadership opportunities.

A significant portion of my community leadership has come as I have worked to start up a 20/30s group at my church. I've been working to get this group going for about a year and I've learned alot along the way. Much which I feel would be viewed favorably such as learning how to manage others, taking initiative, etc However, I'm not sure how an Admissions committee would respond to my main community leadership being at church. What do you think?

One other question, is it ok to talk about how one of the reasons I want to get my MBA is so that I can have increased access to leadership opportunities? I care less about my starting salary (being that I work at a non-profit) then I do about having an opportunity to work for and lead a business or organization that can not only provide services to others but also impact a community in a positive way.

I don't want to get down on my current job but one of the reasons I'm looking to go back to school is because I don't feel I can advance or take sufficient leadership at my current position. Is it bad to mention this?

Thanks in advance

Great questions -- you're right leadership is the major characteristic that schools look for.

Schools are receptive to leadership examples from all walks. What you've described sound like terrific examples that should go over well.

I also think talking about your desire to move into leadership positions post-MBA and how you're currently restricted will also go over well. Don't be afraid to even mention that it's your interest in obtaining a leadership position and that you're not even interested in the salary. Schools will be impressed with that commitment to leadership. Just make sure what ever your chosen career path is synchs with your leadership messaging.
