UYL1906 -- Transformational Leaders

5/14/2019
More
While all leadership strives for behavioral change, most leadership scenarios do not require a change in identity, as well. That’s what sets transformational leadership apart.

4/2/2019

UYL1902 -- Surprised by the Impact of Leadership

3/19/2019
More
While still a teenager, from a family of very modest means, I discovered that leadership was a way to have impact on the world around me, even without the personal advantage of wealth, social prestige, or political influence. That discovery ignited a passion for leadership in me. And it set my life on a trajectory which I've followed for decades.
