"Leaders...know how to dance the old dance. We all grew up in traditional organizations with conventional leader and role models. Now the music has changed. We don't know the new steps and there are not footprints on the floor." Peter R. Schools' words accurately reflect the challenges of leading today. You have to be able to develop a diverse team that can achieve optimum performance. You have to know how to motivate a variety of individuals. And you have to be willing to shed the old ways of thinking to make room for the new. This course will start you on that path.
