"Leadership is so much more than a title/position or individual concept." Those are words that Dr. Travis Martin shared in a comment about leadership on LinkedIn. On his third tour as a university fraternity and sorority life leader, Travis visited "Ethocast" to talk about how he works with students to sharpen their leadership skills, starting with the practice of vision casting. He also describes the Social Change Model of leadership and why he believes that Greeks can be drivers of social change on campus.
