Each contact point that you have with a school is an opportunity to stand out or be remembered. But beware – you don’t want to be remembered for the wrong reasons.
The first and most important rule is to be authentic!

Authenticity shows that you have a certain level of self awareness, which is an important quality for strong leadership.
