“Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.”

– John C. Maxwell


The Open Water Foundation believes that leaders must be good stewards and servants, and empower others to be successful. Consequently, OWF supports leadership development for its staff and others. OWF also tries to exhibit leadership as an organization by collaborating to address water issues and being innovative whenever possible.
