Leaders make the headlines on a regular basis – for their successes and their gaffes. After a particularly awful decision makes the news, do you ever wonder how that person could make such a dumb mistake? Mistakes and successes don’t happen in a vacuum. They are generally a culmination of decisions and actions the leader makes. But where do those decisions come from? Almost always, the leader’s character plays a role in decision-making and communications.
In this course, you will take the first steps on a lifetime journey of developing the character that will enable you to be the leader you envision.
