Some leaders are identified by titles, but we all lead in some capacity. Often a leader is someone who connects with and attracts others, stands up to take charge and enables other to achieve their passion. What if leadership has more to do with finding an area of strength and using that strength to influence others in a positive way? Let's embrace our roles as influencers in a way that is less about position and more about disposition. In this webinar, we will help leaders capitalize on the strength they have always had and develop the correct strategies and communication styles to effectively guide others. We'll review how servant leaders show that sustained effort is required at every level in an organization. Let's learn how to lead - from the bottom up.
