Enter for the Web Of Life Foundation 2014 Essay Competition

The Web Of Life (WOL) Foundation is now accepting entries for the 2014 Essay competition. The theme for the 2014 competition is “Leadership: What are the characteristics of effective leadership for the 21st centuries”. The WOLFoundation encourages participants to focus on the nature of leadership itself rather than the specifics of issues that leaders should be addressing.

Any and all views on the specified theme are welcome and encouraged. WOLFoundation would like to see entries that address all perspectives creatively. Just avoid giving tired ideas that have been hashed out many times before.  Fresh thinking and a clear, compelling writing style are what they seek.
