    Leadership is Service

    Building A Career of Influence over Authority



    Committing to serve is a big decision. Once made, however, a leader's life gets easier and more satisfying – not just at work but also in life. Few are born with it, and those who develop it are all in. Some say it’s all that “touchy – feely stuff” that HR does. You will be disavowed of that notion. There are perspectives held by such a leader. There are skills at which such a leader is competent. Some tools make it easier to put the perspectives into practice. Randy has built a very satisfying career as a leader who serves as a partner to C-level executives. His stories will engage and challenge participants to consider the possibilities.

      Learning Objectives:

      Participants will be able to:
