23 Truths about Leadership Development

May 2018 | Conference KeyNotes

Leadership isn’t a mere add-on to daily responsibilities. It’s a full-time job. But today’s rapid business pace makes it tough to be a fully accountable, intentional leader. And creating the environment for great leadership is difficult, especially in companies that emphasize and reward technical skills. Great leaders arise and thrive in organizations with strong relationships and durable connections, with leadership development programs that are simple, clear, and measurable.
