Leadership excellence requires a focus on serving internal teams, employees and volunteers as well as external customers, regardless of industry.

Examining stories from non-profit and for-profit teams, we’ll discuss methods for attracting, retaining and developing talent, the foundations for creating and leading high-performing teams, and fortifying the future of an organization through the development of its talent.
