What does it mean to be a leader? A leader has the ability to inspire his/her “fold” to achieve the “un-achievable”. A leader is very self critical and always seeks to improve. A leader has wisdom, courage, and integrity.
At Welcome Home, we really have a great team that inspires and leads every day. The North Star Leadership award is an annual award that is dedicated to honor those individuals who exemplify what it means to be a leader in our senior living communities. This award will go to someone whose actions and leadership greatly enhance the work environment in the community and the quality of life for the residents.
This award is open to anyone in the company who meets the criteria. The award will be presented at Welcome Home Management’s Winter Conference in January 2012.
