Great leaders have many unique qualities that set them apart from everybody else. Exceptional leaders have empathy, compassion, and integrity. A great leader is one who is capable of inspiring others to do better, uplifting those who are down on morale, charting a clear path forward for those they lead, and instilling faith in those who doubt themselves. All these great qualities have somehow converged in one man. Matthew Autterson is the true definition of a great leader.
