Leadership Briefs

Shaping Organizational Culture to Stretch Leadership Capacity
Written By Dick Daniels

Leadership Briefs

Leadership Briefs is written for those who are willing to learn from yesterday’s success and today’s mistakes for tomorrow’s best practice.

Leadership is a lifelong excursion into organizational waters that generally include both turbulence and calm.

Continual learning is the commitment of sustaining leaders who neither fear the turbulence nor become mesmerized by the calm.

Written from the perspective of business experience and corporate observation, Leadership Briefs shortens the learning curve for leadership practitioners: Shape your organizational culture, Stretch your leadership capacity, and Accelerate the development of those who follow.
