Uncovering Leadership Blind Spots - Santa Ana
Wednesday, July 26, 2017
9:00 - 11:00 AM

Leadership matters. Leaders at the senior level strive to create a culture of engagement, while leaders on the front line need to motivate employees daily to drive results. Regardless of level, most leaders "think" they’re demonstrating the qualities of an effective leader, but the findings from a new study indicate otherwise.

Through a recent global employee study, Dale Carnegie identified specific areas where leaders are falling short – we call these "leadership blind spots". Join us for a business brief as we identify the leadership attributes that are critical to organizational performance and find out what your leaders may be missing. Two hour free workshop.
