The Leader's Climb

Today, executives and executive teams are going too fast, fighting too much, and forcing too many decisions. Is there something you (the leader) can do about it? Yes, if you are willing to reconsider the way you lead and how you interact with the challenges and struggles that come your way. This presentation will add to your personal, professional and organizational levels of satisfaction AND success. It's all about understanding the power of awareness, acceptance and abundance.
