The usual “command and control” approach is ineffectual during uncertain and fast-changing times. Team and organizational agility requires commitment, not compliance. Professional success demands an expanded understanding of the leadership capabilities to get things done with others. This webinar makes the case that in our day, to be a successful leader you must be capable of leading collaboratively.
