Leadership (and Life) Lessons From Legends

Newton famously said, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”  One of the most effective ways to develop leadership is to borrow lessons from some of the best.  This memorable program will be tailored to your organization and explores lessons including:  speaking secrets of Winston Churchill, conviction and clarity of Mother Teresa, wisdom of Abe Lincoln, mentoring of John Wooden, courage of Amelia Earhart, drive of Michael Jordan, guts and work ethic of Ray Kroc, creativity of Marie Currie, and many more.  If you take just one of these lessons home, your leadership will never be the same!
