It’s rare to find effective advise, which is hard won in the halls of leadership today. In this episode we explore how we all can up our skills, practice and effectiveness across the seven most critical functions of leadership. We talk with executive coach, consultant, speaker and the author of the new book, Seven Disciplines of a Leader, Jeff Wolf.
If you are leading a group of people they are looking for some who has a vision, that’s going to inspire them, that’s going to motivate them. If you are doing the tactical work everyday, you won’t be able to do that.
