“Leadership in Four Dimensions”

The fact that leadership has been studied and written on so extensively would seem to indicate that it is an extremely complex subject. Recognized leaders come in many different styles and demeanors, making leadership traits challenging to parse and distill. Do different situations, environments or cultures require different types of leadership? Let’s work together interactively to see if it’s possible to utilize a leadership framework that brings some order to this complexity and is a tool that you can use as you develop your personal leadership throughout your career.
