José Sanders, dean Faculty of Arts, talks about her personal experience with personal leadership.

“To me, taking the lead means taking your role seriously, and focusing on the content of your work while remaining in this role. It also means taking others seriously in their assigned role.We all experience setbacks at times, or find some of our tasks less interesting. My advice is to always do your work to the best of your abilities, and to find joy in it, together with your close colleagues. Because once you do, you will be surprised.When you look for responsibility, innovation, and connection in your work, you will see opportunities arise that you could never have imagined beforehand.”
