Captivating, Capacity-Building Conversations

In their article, “Leadership Is a Conversation,” that is published in the Harvard Business Review, Boris Groysberg and Michael Sind make this very case. Their article is provocative and thus, I urge you to read it if possible. (It is s free download). You can see it at …

We have work to do, people to reach and dynamic potential to release!

Captivating, Capacity-Building Conversations
