The value of Citizenship is highlighted in this dimension. Leaders recognize their role in society and are engaged in their communities.
Citizenship in this instance refers to the obligation you have as a member of a community to positively influence the community. Citizenship is the idea that we all have a stake in society and a responsibility to others. Leaders who practice Citizenship are actively engaged in their communities and recognize opportunities to make a positive change in their communities. You might be overwhelmed by the idea of making a positive change in the community, but do not be discouraged. We are all part of various communities and have the potential to make a difference on varying scales. Consider the place you live as one community. What positive change could you facilitate in your home? If you want to think big, consider the causes that inspire you and look for opportunities to make a difference in those areas. For example, if you are passionate about the environment, you might look for opportunities to influence environmental laws and legislation.
