Factors of Effective Visionary Leadership

This workshop combines the wisdom of ancient philosophers, successful executives and leadership gurus into a clear road map for effective leadership. The four factors focus on common themes that can be found throughout most books on leadership and interpersonal effectiveness. These factors show that: - Everyone can be a leader - Leadership begins with you - Leadership is a relationship - Leadership produces positive change.

Using stories of famous leaders and infamous failures, the workshop illustrates the importance of the four factors: Influence, Integrity, Inspiration, and Improvement. These factors are contrasted with the pitfalls of ineffective leadership: Power, Position, Popularity, and Personality.
