Leadership by example can be exhibited in small ways in daily life, such as choosing not to join in rude or reckless behavior with one’s peers, thus encouraging other friends to do the same thing. Leadership can be seen simply in someone who maintains a positive outlook on life, encouraging others to do the same and view the world in a more positive light.

Being the ideal leader requires an ability to see the big picture and understand how small pieces play into it. An ideal leader also possesses the communication skills to portray to his team members their role and his expectations of them so that all the pieces may fit together smoothly.

LeBron James inspires me in how he ignites a desire within his teammates to be better–not only urging them to strive for greatness, but helping to actually get them there and making his teammates better when he’s on the court. I respect his willingness and ability to take the blame for mistakes with composure and class as well as his intensely competitive spirit that allows him to settle for nothing less than greatness–I strive to be this kind of leader one day and to pursue greatness in whatever I do.

New Theme: Georgia Tech v3 Theme

You might have noticed that the Professional Web Presence (PWP) website has a new look and feel. It’s not just you – PWP has introduced a new Georgia Tech theme to prepare for a campus-wide web redesign. Introducing – Georgia Tech v3 Theme!

Developed by the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, the Georgia Tech v3 Theme implementation follows decisions made by Georgia Tech’s Institute Communications regarding an upcoming rebrand. And we want PWP websites to be the first to experience the new look.

Features include:

  • Expanded Visibility and Customization for Site Title and Parent/Grandparent Unit Names and URLs – great for websites placed under a unit or department.
  • Minimized Header/Footer Presence – new Georgia Tech-recommended branding leaves more room for your content to shine.
  • Enhanced Accessibility Support

The Georgia Tech v3 Theme is available for any PWP website to use today! To switch themes, navigate to your Dashboard and locate the new theme under ‘Appearance->Themes’.

Please note that customizations such as widgets will need to be re-organized after any new theme selection.

Later in 2018, all new PWP websites will leverage the Georgia Tech v3 Theme as the default theme!
