"If you don't believe in the messenger,
you won't believe in the message."
Having a vision and theme for your yearbook is essential to its success, but you have to trust the members of your team in order to reach complete success.
As assignments and duties start to pile up, it is important for every member of the team to have an even amount of work to do.
If you stretch yourself too thin, your quality of work will lower and the less you will be able to complete.

COMMUNICATION
It is of utmost importance that a leader is trustworthy and is known to live with honesty and integrity.

A good leader "walks the talk" and functions in an orderly and ethical manner when making decisions.
A good leader is enthusiastic about their work and about their role as leader.

Leaders remain positive and calm and are tolerant of ambiguity.

Emotions and crises come and go, but a good leader takes these as part of the journey and keeps a cool head.
A good leader is committed to excellence. Second best does not lead to success.

A good leader is committed to getting the work done and leads by example by getting down in the trenches and working side-by-side with the team members.

A good leader shows commitment to their promises. If you make a promise, it is important that you follow through.
It is the leader's job to remain excited and motivating towards the team members.

A good leader is confident and inspires confidence in others.

It is important for the team to have inclusiveness towards the vision of the yearbook and to share the common end goal.
