The Power of Leadership

Inspirations

inspirations_imgFrom time to time, I see leadership ideas that inspire me, published in the Harvard Business Review, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, or other media. I like to share those viewpoints either with specific clients who I think might be particularly interested in the topic, or I share them with a broader audience. I hope you will find these pieces inspiring in your leadership journey.
