“Being the co-president of RCSB taught me how to leverage different team thinking, adapt my leadership style and engage diverse stakeholders to foster collaboration and achieve a common vision.”Elfine Caumont, co-President of RCSB
Bronwyn Williams, co-President of RCSB: “I’ve learned that when charting into unknown territory, bringing positive energy can transcend through a team to keep us motivated and create a strong team morale. This was especially true given that it was our club’s first year running. Naturally, there were going to be hiccups, but by maintaining a positive can-do attitude in our workspace, we created a wonderful community at UofT this year. This outlook will definitely help me in my future career, as I will be learning many new and seemingly daunting tasks. With this outlook, I will continue to confidently acquire and adapt to new ideas.”
