Today, leadership is not just a top-down idea. Leadership occurs at every level of every organization—from top down to bottom up.

Your success is as much a result of your team’s capacity for action as it is a function of your knowledge and abilities. Leadership and Influence will develop your management and interpersonal skills so you can more effectively collaborate with and inspire others toward a common goal.
