Leadership Credo

I believe that...

Leaders are born learners

Leadership is about creating more leaders, not more

Masterful agents of change can make a positive difference in the world

Visionary leaders are passionate, innovative and collaborative

Leadership is a sacred trust with the people we serve

Effective leaders inspire confidence, respect, affection and trust in others

Experience is the most effective facilitator of leadership development

Leadership mastery is a quest, not a destination

A new leadership culture is emerging in the world
