Is this statement correct?
"Helping other people contributes to your being a great leader."
I'm not really sure with the phrase 'to your being'. It sounds incorrect but I'm not really sure. If it's incorrect, how do I rephrase the sentence?
It would be better to replace "being" with "becoming." Then it'll read better and make better sense.
Thank you for your reply. :)
By the way, how about if it's in the past (contributes -> contributed)?
Can the phrase still be 'to your becoming'?
Yes, it can ... it'll read fine either in past or present.
Thank you very much for your help. :)
You're VERY welcome. =)
