Two years ago, I attended a lecture by John Puerner, who was then the president of the Los Angeles Times. The topic was “Leadership Without Authority,” a concept that frequently applies to business managers who find themselves having to inspire employees who are not their direct reports. Mr. Puerner said that not everyone has the ability to be a leader, and therefore, if you can lead, then you have a moral obligation to do so.

This is the story that opens my grad school admissions essay.
