How Leaders Communicate For Results

How you "Show Up" as a leader influences everything you achieve. And as much as we try to ignore it, so much of leadership success comes back to communication.

The way you create connection or distance each day affects your ability to build relationships, increase discretionary effort, and develop influence.

"Excellent... This is one of the most powerful communications and influence products on the market."
