The Invisible Hand of Leadership©

Quick Summary

The Invisible Hand of Leadership© is based on the premise that every business and organization has both a visible and invisible hand of leadership that permeates its culture and guides decision making, effectiveness, performance, and, ultimately, the legacy of its leaders. As leaders take a visible role in developing other leaders, they instill an invisible impact to future leaders, some of whom they may never meet or see. This program helps high-performing and high-potential leaders develop their authentic leadership voice, maximize their potential, and achieve their goals.
