The foundation of improving one's leadership effectiveness or influence begins with understanding oneself and increasing self-awareness. This program is designed to help leaders understand how their behavior is teaching and influencing all the time, as well as to help them clarify the ideal leader they'd like to become and how to begin closing that gap.
