I think that this is where his leadership skills really shone. In one short video, Brad was able to give an entire class of different students something that they could identify with on a personal level.
Being able to make yourself relatable and able to connect with very, very different people is an important quality. Brad set himself apart in that he didn't set this relatability up in a way that said "I'm better than you, but you can get there" but in a way that says "I struggle. Do you struggle? Let's struggle together." The capacity to being disparate people together and give of yourself is something I want to grow in this year.
