Here at Sight and Life, we believe great leadership is about having a vision of an improved world, acting on that vision and inspiring others to do the same.
We are accepting nominations for individuals striving for a better world and have proven to be a leader in the nutrition field. We will be requesting submissions from our friends, colleagues, and extended networks to submit nominations for eligible candidates to receive the award. Each potential candidate must meet specific requirements.
A good leader is a visionary, not a dreamer: someone who not only dreams and talks about a better world but steps up to realize his vision.
A good leader is innovative and creative: someone who seeks new solutions to a problem and provides the knowledge and methods to take them into action.
A good leader is passionate: someone who is driven by a passion about his or her work to improve the current situation.
A good leader has courage: someone who rises and takes initiative in difficult times.
A transformative leader is an inspiration: someone who inspires, encourages, and helps other people achieving improvement. In this spirit, we proudly announce the 2017 Sight and Life Nutrition Leadership Award.
The submissions will be narrowed down to the top five candidates. A committee, which includes past winners, will then determine the recipient of the Sight and Life Nutrition Leadership Award.
