Monday Morning Meet Your Leaders – Ariane Yazdan
CASA of Ocean County
1. What is one of the most important qualities of a great leader?
I’m not sure what the best answer to this question is but I always liked the quote ‘leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders’. That is how I view great leaders. I was lucky enough to work for, and with, some amazing people when I was starting out. Their example is how I view my role as a leader – to help those starting out in their careers become leaders in their own right.
2. How does your organization take our community to the next level?
Protecting children, particularly the vulnerable children in foster care, seems to me a straightforward answer on the future of our community. Helping the abused and neglected children in foster care find a path to a safe, happy and permanent home will ensure a strong community in the future.
3. What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
Spending time with friends and family.
4. What is your favorite food/recipe and why?
I love all types of food and am not much of a cook so I would have to say menus are my favorite ‘recipe’ as someone else is doing the cooking!
