Focused on four areas of leadership development – leading self, leading others, leading without authority, and leading organizational strategy – this seminar allows participants the opportunity to explore their style, to understand the foundations of effectively leading others, influencing direction without authority, as well as, creating and implementing effective organizational strategy.
