Administrative Leadership

Leadership... not a position or accolade as much as it is an agreement to responsibility.

The success of Dharma Inc. rests on this premise. We strive to be an organization of leaders - the leaders being members of our own community who embody an attitude of service and responsibility.


Dharma Inc. recognizes that everyone is not the same leader with the same responsibilities, but everyone is a leader and capable of strong leadership in one’s own role. Our goal is to help everyone recognize and express that leader within.
