Project Overview

1. Description of Our Team

This is our third year. We are chosen topic leadership after discussing it with so many people. Our Team members are Utkarsh, Sarthak, Vignesh and Advait. We have worked very hard and divided work among ourselves equally. We selected this topic as we are really concern about our county and it's leaders.

Miss Madhuri helped us a lot whenever we needed her help.

2. Summary of Our Project

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

So it's critical to distinguish between the skill of performance and the skill of leading the performance, two entirely different skills. The leader coaches his followers, inspires enthusiasm and depends on good will. The leader says 'WE', fixes the breakdown and says 'LET'S GO! This is how each and every Ryaniteis trained to be at Ryan International. Students are moulded to become leaders by providing them opportunities to lead by example, motivate and move their fellow students and above all to inspire and to act.Students practise their leadership qualities through class leadership at the beginning. Later they become members of the parliament, headed by the president and carry out various responsibilities and discharge the duties assigned to them. The school strives to build in them the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to …
