How can a leader learn how to lead? Society gives us so many resources, and among them is the all-important resource of education. To become a good leader, one must first discover how they lead in their own life. Places like the Harvard Business School create just such an environment for this discovery to be made. Whether one excels to the head of the class, chooses to lead through extracurricular activities, or both, the world of academics is a place for self-discovery. Angela Chao and her sisters are products of this environment of academic nurture. The Chao sisters launched to success, and can trace much of that success back to their respective times at the Harvard Business School. Such is the case with many of the school’s graduates, as well as graduates of other academic institutions. Whether a leader sees themselves as serving those around them, or someone that can learn from those that serve them, it all starts with the leadership skills that they learned in an educational environment.
