Words from a Wise Man: Great Leaders Grow

Yes, I know this blog is usually about great women leaders (not men).  The world has seen and heard from a lot of great male leaders already.  I like to talk about great women leaders most…and tonight I am making a partial exception. I have a new book in my hands that was given to me by one of the authors.  He is one of the most insightful, powerful and compassionate individuals in business today.  He is one of the most influential leadership experts in the world and is respected for his years of groundbreaking work in the fields of leadership and management.  He is part of an...
