What makes a good leader?
A leader is someone people look up to, admire and want to follow their example. Someone people respect, can trust and has integrity. Leaders are influential in all areas of life from a football captain to a Prime Minister.
Is leadership different for disabled people?
Social barriers can impede someone's development to becoming a leader but can also strengthen and make them more determined to succeed.
Do disabled people experience barriers to leadership that non disabled people don't experience?
The biggest barrier for disabled people in attaining leadership is the attitudes of others around them. Many of these attitudes are sub conscious and are therefore difficult to change.
