"Your choice of leadership and management style can increase

or decrease productivity in your organization by up to ten times."

—Jim Bagnola

  • Are there natural-born leaders?
  • What one element is required in order to be a leader?
  • Is "followship" a derogatory term?
  • Are there characteristics that identify a leader in every situation?
  • Does a person’s title automatically confer leadership?
  • Who will make better leaders in the 21st century—men or women?

Answer these questions and know more about authentic leading than most people in higher management.
