How to be a leader with edge
Strong leadership is intrinsically linked to business success, yet many organisations fall short of their potential because they do not equip their staff with the necessary skills to lead effectively. While all leaders have the ability to manager only a small portion of managers have the necessary skills to become strong leaders, leaders with edge and this is stifling growth.
