    Summary: 

    With leadership being such a buzzword in today’s business environment, the word is tossed around to mean almost anything. Some use leadership as a tool to get things done. Others have used it as a weapon for controlling others. With so many ideas out there around leadership, there needs to be some clarity around this nebulous idea of leadership.

    This conversation with the Kansas Leadership Center will help you explore what leadership is, what it looks like in your context and how you might help others lead more so they can solve problems more quickly and effectively.  

     

    Speaker: Thomas Stanley, Kansas Leadership Center
