We are all, in our own unique way – leaders in our workplaces, our communities, and our homes. Leadership is about earning the trust of the people you serve, achieving results through others, and above all, making a difference. Leadership is the great challenge of life and is too important to be reduced to techniques or tools or titles. True leadership comes from the identity and integrity of the leader. It’s about who you are and how you live. Leadership is about presence, not position.
Take this opportunity to step back and gain a new perspective on leadership and life from one of Canada’s most respected voices on authentic leadership and organizational culture.
