About the course
Followers are not interested in leaders who cannot, or will not, "walk the talk". Asking people to change, improve and achieve more is a waste of time when their leader cannot model the desired behaviors in his or her own life. Participants in this session will learn that personal leadership is at the foundation of the leadership process and that, in order to build trust and lead the business forward, they must first take on the responsibility of leading themselves. Participants will also learn to focus on the true drivers of performance, regain critical planning and personal time, dramatically increase work and life engagement, and get more done in less time with less stress.
