spotlightonservantleaders One of the great things about putting the spotlight on some of our free management training materials is that, every now and then, someone will read about a concept, theory, or model and, bingo, a light will go on in their head.

This idea literally turns traditional concepts of leadership on their head and all this can happen with just a one-page skillbooster. Download it for free from this link... more
