A trailblazer is someone who is at or near the top of their area of interest or expertise and leads the way for others to follow. With an ability to forge a path where none exists, a trailblazer doesn’t depend on a guide or set of instructions - this person sets out with tenacity and resilience in the direction of their vision. Trailblazers are those rare individuals with a sense of direction and the fortitude to lead the way.
“Perseverance” and “risk-taking” are descriptors. A trailblazer is a team leader with an ability to leverage resources and the talents of others to inspire, disrupt and implement change.
