How Commitments Create Leadership Culture - Kyung Yoon

In Chapter 9 of 19 in her 2011 Capture Your Flag interview, non-profit executive Kyung Yoon answers "Why is It Not Only Important to Participate in a Network But Also to Contribute?"  In her work as a non-profit executive, Yoon finds leadership to be the greatest constraint to an organization's success.  Beyond the ideas, mission, and intentions, it is necessary for individuals to emerge and drive the mission forward.  Yoon notes how taking responsibility and making a contribution is fundamental to move beyond simply forming a group of participants.  Kyung Yoon is the executive director of the Korean American Community Foundation (KACF) in New York City.  An award-winning journalist and documentary film producer, Yoon earned an MA in International Relations from Johns Hopkins University and a BA in History and Political Science at Wellesley College.
