Growing 
 leaders

You don't see the world very clearly! You feel that one listens to you.! Fragile, you break easily. People now notice you.! You have a better picture of how the world works.! People don’t always understand what you mean.! You still have a lot to learn and you fail often. You have learned a lot and gained experience.! You have more knowledge.! You are able to influence your environment.! It is now time to start hatching more eggs.
