Unlabeled Leadership

Unlabeled Leadership

Unlabeled Leadership helps you develop your leadership capabilities to achieve the results you want. Rather than using labels that mystify and obscure the meaning of leadership, Gary DePaul and guests share personal stories about the small acts and the big ones, leading to substantial results. These acts can profoundly influence the performance of your peers, teams, organization, and even yourself. When we strengthen our leadership, work becomes more satisfying and rewarding! Gary A.
