Great leaders—the truly successful ones – all have one thing in common. They know that acquiring and keeping good people is a leader’s most important task. An organization cannot increase its productivity—but people can! The only asset that appreciates within an organization is people. Systems become dated. Buildings deteriorate. Machinery wears. But people can grow, develop, and become more effective if they have a leader who recognizes and cultivates their leadership potential.

The bottom line is that you can’t do it alone. If you really want to be a successful leader, you must develop other leaders around you. You must establish a team. You must find a way to get your vision seen, implemented, and contributed to by others. The leader sees the big picture, but he needs other leaders to help make that picture a reality.

In this workshop, you will be challenged not only to learn about developing leaders but also to take the action steps necessary to invest in the potential leaders around you.
