Leading Yourself. Leadership begins with you. Before you can lead others you must be able to lead yourself. Leading yourself begins with having a sense of who you are, what you can do and where you are going. It is about being intentional with your thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Leading Your Team. Leading a team requires vision. People follow those who know where they are going. Effective team leaders connect their group to a common purpose and foster an environment that encourages high performance.

Leading Your Industry. Leading your industry means advocating growth and promoting change. Only collective disruption moves your industry forward. Growth requires openness to creativity and innovation that ends in acceptance of change.
